CARRIE: Second Trailer

978-0-345-80587-4The second trailer for the new adaptation of Stephen King’s classic horror story, Carrie, debuted online this week. Directed by Kimberly Peirce, it stars Chloë Grace Moretz in the title role and Julianne Moore as her fanatically religious mother. The movie arrives in theaters on Oct. 18.

Brian De Palma directed the original adaptation in 1976, with Sissy Spacek as Carrie and Piper Laurie as her mother.

Tie-ins to Carrie from RH/Vintage will be released on Sept. 24 in mass market, audio (Sissy Spacek narrates) and Spanish-language editions.

Director Kimberley Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry) has said on her Facebook page that her Carrie will not be a remake of De Palma’s version:

… I have gone back to the wonderful STEPHEN KING Book CARRIE; I am also modernizing the story as one has to in order to bring any great piece of work written in one era into the next and especially given how very relevant this material is right now.

That explains the presence of cell phones in the trailer (for more insight on Peirce’s approach to the novel, see MovieWeb‘s on-set interview with the director).
