I know, I know, I’m a little late on Comic-Con scoops, but unfortunately I was unable to attend this year and I’m STILL finding so many incredible things I sadly missed out on. One thing I missed out on (but now get to pass on to you boils ‘n ghouls) is a reveal of a banner for the upcoming Sony remake of CARRIE. Remember, folks, the remake, directed by Kimberly Peirce, and starring Chloe Moretz (Kick Ass, Let Me in), Julianne Moore (Hannibal), Alex Russell (Chronicle), Ansel Elgort, Gabriella Wilde (The Three Musketeers), Judy Greer (The Descendants) and Portia Doubleday (Youth In Revolt) was originally slated for a March 13, 2013 theatrical release that has now been pushed back (as apparent by the banner) to October 18th. While I personally HATE waiting, particularly for something with such promise, I think October really is a better time for a horror genre release date!

Carrie Partial Comic Con Banner


The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White (Moore) and her daughter Carrie (Moretz). Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (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.

  1. She is going to be something, that girl. The next Jodie Foster, I’ll bet.
