Everyone and their mom (literally) knows about the infamous pig’s blood scene from Stephen King’s Carrie, which launches the teen into an unstoppable rage of violence and destruction. But to be frank, it’s kind of bumming me out that the pinnacle of this classic story is already being shared with us in a slew of images. The latest comes via Director Kimberly Peirce who shared a new look at Chloe Moretz as the title character from the titular moment. Moretz is literally covered in blood and flames are bursting all around her. What are we supposed to look forward to now? At least save the money shot for the trailer!
Julianne Moore, Alex Russell, Ansel Elgort, Gabriella Wilde, Judy Greer and Portia Doubleday all star.
In theaters March 15, 2013, “‘Carrie’ tells the supernatural tale of a telekinetic teenage girl tormented by her peers. The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine, is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White (Moore) and her daughter, Carrie (Moretz). Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Greer) tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson (Doubleday), but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell (Wilde), regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc.”
Brian De Palma’s 1976 film version of Carrie earned Oscar nominations for stars Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie.
