You will know her name…later this year.
Screen Gems has bumped the Carrie remake – starring Chloe Moretz – out of its March 15th release slot. The film is now slated to open on October 18th. So, for those that cry, “Horror movies should come out in October!” Well, you’ve got one more to look forward to. October is already populated by The Devil’s Rapture and Paranormal Activity 5.
I’m curious as to why there was a shift. Hopefully, director Kimberly Peirce can address this soon. I’ve heard positive responses from a recent test screening. Perhaps it needs more time to complete post-production, tinker around or pull off the FX? Or to stay out of the Oz the Great and Powerful‘s wake (it opens a week prior)? Or all of the above.
The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White and her daughter Carrie. Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson, but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell, regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross, to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc.
