WATCH: Carrie remake teaser launched

October 16th, 2012 by Marc Comments

We showed you the new teaser poster yesterday (see above), well here’s the first teaser trailer for the remake of the classic Stephen King/Brian DePalma Carrie…

Once again, the footage debuted at NYCC but now there’s a hi-res version and we must say, it looks pretty on the money.

Kimberly Peirce’s  (Boys Don’t Cry, Stop-Loss) take on the material stars Chloë Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore but, despite the cast, it’s another hard sell. The original DePalma movie was spot on, so we’re still wondering if we need this… but we’ll definitely be there first night none-the-less.

Carrie opens on March 15 2013

Here’s the official synopsis:
The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White and her daughter Carrie. Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson, but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell, regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross, to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
