As NYCC comes to an end, the news is still surfacing straight from the convention as plenty of films and fan-favorite television series are on display and showcasing just what’s to come in the future. While we’ve already showed you what’s to come with Evil Dead, it’s been the upcoming horror remake ofCarrie that has certainly gained a decent amount of publicity this past week with plenty of high-profile promotion for the upcoming teaser trailer. Now, Carrie begins to spill some blood with the first poster featuring a drenched look of the main character.
Dark Horizons debuted the first poster for Carrie today, which oddly enough seems to take plenty of inspiration from the fan-made effort earlier this year. Much like the creation, the shot is only that of Chloe Moretz covered in blood but instead takes a more cryptic and confident approach with a vague tagline that hints at what’s to come. Of course this comes just days before the first trailer will hit online, which we’ll have for you at the beginning of this week.
The film takes place in Chamberlain, Maine, the home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White (Julianne Moore) and her daughter Carrie (Moretz). Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Judy Greer) tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson (Portia Doubleday, Youth in Revolt), but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde, The Three Musketeers), regrets their actions.
In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (newcomer 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.
Carrie, directed by Kimberley Peirce and adapted by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, is schedule to hit theaters on March 13th, 2013.
