I know that Carrie is a well known story from a best-selling novel, previously adapted into a widely seen film, but this trailer certainly cuts a long way into the story.
Again, no sign of the mixed-media approach that had been hinted at previously. Chloe Moretz looks the part, though, and Julianne Moore seems to be the perfect casting.
Above all else, though, it’s director Kimberly Peirce‘s intelligence and sincerity that makes me interested in whatever films she makes. I’m not sure she could “beat” Brian De Palma’s film, but I do think she could make a very strong one of her own.
