[Comic-Con '13] “Holy Crap” To This Incredible ‘Carrie’ Banner!

carrie-banner

I know it’s a new version of Stephen King’s novel, and we’re supposed to be angry about it, but I can’t help but be excited for Sony Screen Gems’ new version of Carrie, directed by Kimberly Peirce.

It’s insane how far Chloe Grace Moretz has come since her role in Platinum Dunes’ The Amityville Horror remake of 2005. Now, she’ll be the ultimate Prom Queen when the reboot hits theaters on October 18.

Yahoo! premiered this astoundingly aggressive and eye-catching banner that will grace the halls of this week’s San Diego Comic-Con. Everything released thus far has been nothing short of spectacular. Let’s all collectively use our psychic abilities to ensure it’s good…

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.

    not bad but Carrie looks cross eyed and she looks like a CGI creation.

    Haha, I had know Idea that was her in the The Amityville Horror remake. That craziness!

    I want (and am going) to see this, but she just looks too animated which is the only thing I don’t like. All the cgi is ‘too’ cartoony. I have no problem with Chloe as Carrie because the “she’s too pretty” issue is missing the point of today’s society. Girls can be pretty but still suffer from being bullied and tormented. When I saw the original, granted I was young, but Sissy never was unattractive to me just really awkward. She was very pretty imo when she got dolled up to go to prom, so I don’t understand the problem. And I don’t want to see entirely the same movie again. We know its Carrie and we know whats going to happen to her. So why not just enjoy Chloe’s performance and be interested in how Kimberly chose to end it this time. Again, my only issue is poorly done CGI.

    Im going to see this movie but the only thing I don’t like is how animated she looks. I have no problem with Chloe as Carrie because I honestly don’t understand the “she’s too pretty” argument. When I saw the original when I was younger, I never thought that Sissy was unattractive just a really awkward girl, and then when she got dolled up for the prom I thought she was really pretty. In society, especially today, even pretty girls are bullied and tormented.. so whats the problem? I don’t want to see entirely the same movie either. We know its Carrie and we know what happens at the prom, so why not just enjoy Chloe’s performance and be interested in how Kimberly chose to end this version. Again my only problem so far is the poorly done, and unnecessary, CGI.

    I’m all for it. I love the cast and am glad a female is directing. If it’s bad, we still have DePalma’s classic, and if it’s good, it’s good.

    As a huge fan of Stephen King’s “Carrie”, I made and account here just to say that NO, we are NOT supposed to be angry at this. The way I see it; we are finally getting a “Carrie” adaptation for the big screen, and I’m excited as hell with that. Brian De Palma’s film was a good movie, but a lame adaptation to King’s novel.

    “Incredible” wouldn’t be my words. Chloe looks almost animated because its been photoshopped so much! Though maybe I’m just biased because I am really not ‘feeling’ this remake and I can’t see what good its going to bring :(

    I love the novel, and I love the original movie…but I just can’t seem to get very excited over this version. I’m still going to see it though. Crossing my fingers.
