A week or so ago we shared magazine scans of the first photos from Carrie, Sony and MGM’s retelling of Stephen King’s novella that stars Chloe Moretz in the title role. Now, we’ve landed high resolution versions of the film’s first ever photos; one depicts a blood-soaked and shocked Moretz, the other her psychotic mother, played by Julianne Moore.
Kimberly Peirce also directs Alex Russell, Ansel Elgort, Gabriella Wilde, Judy Greer and Portia Doubleday.
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.
