[Trailer Tracks] Dissecting The ‘Carrie’ Trailer

  • WalkWithMeInDarkness

    Ok, so at first i figured i wouldn’t comment because this post isn’t serious at all, but for the millionth time i feel compelled to say that being pretty DOES NOT mean you won’t be an outcast. The trailer may not give reasons for her “nerdom” but i’m pretty sure being sheltered from the world by a psychotic mother would make you a target for bullies. Or like Grace Randolph from youtube’s Beyond The Trailer said, “Some girls are mean to other girls BECAUSE they’re pretty”, which makes sense. Fear of having a boyfriend kick your ass to the curb might make a beautiful girl torment a fellow beautiful girl. And in reference to the whole “she’s too pretty to be an outcast” thing, Grace also said “I feel like anyone who writes that probably isn’t a girl”. For the most part, it seems like she’s right.

      Point well taken. My ire comes from Hollywood’s continued hesitance to embrace ugly people. Sissy Spacek is not by any means ugly. Yet she perfectly personified a girl who could be both beautiful and believably picked on by average high schoolers. An actress like that would never be cast now, and it bugs me.

        Evan,

        “Sissy Spacek is not by any means ugly. Yet she perfectly personified a girl who could be both beautiful and believably picked on by average high schoolers.”

        EXACTLY!! well said.

    I have a theory about the film considering the change in the release date. Why would Sony move it to October ( the most important season for the gender in cinemas) if it as bad as everybody is saying it is? There must be something completely unexpected about the film ending or a twist that makes it worth to be in the Halloween season.

    This was hilarious. I can’t wait for the Carrie/X-men cross-over. Maybe it’ll be a post credits reveal!

    For some reason, every time I watch this trailer I end up looking forward to it more and more. We all know it will not match the original, but its gonna be a fun movie to see with a crowd.

    Not be for a remake of CARRIE, i still like the original with Piper Laurie, some remakes are dreadful adaptions, but this one is a bit similar to the original, Stephen King is a clever author to his stories. i have no favourite story by him but i found that they are all good.

    Just buy the blu ray of the De Palma version and be done with it.
