Carrie-Banner

You will know her name.

In light of Sony Screen Gems’ New York Comic-Con panel for Carrie completing, the studio has released the first ever poster depicting Chloë Grace Moretz as the title character covered in pig’s blood. In addition, Lonmonster reports in LIVE from the panel with a reaction to the first trailer!

A reimagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz), a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother (Julianne Moore), who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.” Brian De Palma’s 1976 film version of Carrie earned Oscar nominations for stars Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie.

The blood spills in theaters March 15, 2013.

Lonmonster reports with the first reaction to the teaser trailer:

“Expansive view of the city from above, it’s nighttime, dark, panning through the street. The entire city is on fire and trashed, everything is burning cars are on fire. There are character voiceovers talking about Carrie and about supernatural happenings. Finally the camera stops on Carrie, covered from head to toe in the famous blood. She looks pissed, and scared and then it cuts to the title. I almost thought it was the wrong teaser because of large in scope it looked.

Fans can call 207-404-2604 to reach the White residence. You will get a message from one of the actors.”

Producer Kevin Misher on the teaser: “The destruction in the book is quite a bit bigger than the original film so we were able to do that thanks to technology today.

The blood became part of the character, and I got used to it,” adds Moretz.

With Carrie you had the source material and the 1976 film. They speak on deciding what to take from. Says director Kimberly Peirce: “Brian [De Palma] set a lot in motion by making a fantastic motion. I didn’t take anything from his movie. It was really reading Stephen King’s fantastic novel, thinking, “my god this is such a fantastic story that needs to be brought to life in a modern telling.” The cast shares the love for this novel.

Split screen shot? “It’s yet to be seen,” adds Peirce.

The biggest question was how much blood we should use,” she continues. “There were about 50 test blood dumps we did using 3, 4, or 5 gallons in this shot. I always asked Chloe , will you put on more blood? We had all these different kinds of blood. Somewhere around 1000 gallons of fake blood were used, including testing.

Misher jumps in, “It’s an R-rated film, which you guys should be happy about.

    That poster is absolutely terrible and lazy.

    This is actually one of the few “classics” I am okay with being remade. The original is extremely dated and in my opinion, was not a good movie. The poster however is terrible! I still have high hopes for the remake though.

    “It’s an R-rated film, which you guys should be happy about.” I hope he’s not bullshitting! If that is true I will be very pleased. I love Moretz, she is fantastic!

    Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa wrote the screenplay. I loved the work he did on Marvel’s The Stand. He knows how to adapt King and gives me hope it will be faithful. Exciting stuff.

    I’m not too keen about this. I think the Evil Dead remake has potential because they don’t have to just do a shot for shot copy, but the original “Carrie” follows the book really closely, so I don’t see what this is going to add. Besides no one can beat the original “Carrie”! Sissy Spacek, John Travolta and Piper Laurie were all absolutely perfect!

    The Carrie re-make will be watered down garbage so the studio can make more money by bringing in the teenagers. Chloe Grace is still underage so the classic opening period scene will be cut or watered down. This film classic(Carrie)should NOT have be re-made. Evil Dead will be interesting to see what they can do with it. But even with that they won’t capture what Rami had done, CGI destroys most films.

      Underage according to who? You? What exactly are you looking for there? Some tit shots? boo-hoo.

    • Lonmonster

      It’s going to have a hard-R rating, so I’m not sure what teens will be seeing this.

    i’m sorta looking forward to this (i love Judy Greer and i like Julianne & Chloe). i don’t care for this poster. it’s too model photo shoot-ish. take away the blood and it could be Chloe on the cover of Vogue or something. not exactly what i’d think of CARRIE.
