Kimberly Peirce's Carrie is going to stay pretty true to the Stephen King book. The first ever teaser trailer for the horror remake premiered at New York Comic-Con showing one big difference from the 1976 Brian De Palma flick. This time Carrie is going after the city.
Before Chloe Moretz, Julianne Moore, Kimberly Peirce and producer Kevin Misher took to the stage at NYCC, they presented a short little teaser for Carrie. Here's what we saw:
An eagle-eye shot pans over a dark city. There's a voiceover of a man muttering about destruction and saying, "I don't want to say it as a conspiracy, but..." The camera pans over what can only be an old high school, the whole thing is in flames. The windows are bursting with flames, but the camera doesn't stop there; it moves forward. Fireballs of debris litter the street, and a girl speaks in a different voiceover, "Her Mother was a fanatic. I don't know how she lived with her." The camera zooms to street level, showing more and more destruction—the town is in flames. Finally, it stops on a girl standing in front of a bonfire in the town center. It's Carrie. She's covered in blood and looks completely freaked out. The End.
EDIT: Oh I forgot, someone is singing over the whole teaser. I believe it's Julianne Moore crooning the song her character sings to Carrie in the book. But that's not confirmed.
So, obviously, this version of the film is going to be a lot more similar to the book where the town was also destroyed on Carrie's disastrous walk home after prom. This also explains why the recent promo shots released of Chloe show her bloody and in the streets. Girl is going to burn this city to the ground.
