Following up on last night’s reveal of Chloe Moretz in full pig’s blood-stained regalia as Carrie, Entertainment Weekly has just released a much better look at the imagery, and of course we have it for you here.

Synopsis:
Director Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry; Stop-Loss) reimagines Stephen King’s best-selling novel for MGM and Screen Gems’ take on the enduring genre classic. Starring Chloë Grace Moretz (Hugo), four-time Oscar nominee Julianne Moore (Crazy, Stupid, Love; The Kids are Alright), and Judy Greer (The Descendants), CARRIE tells the supernatural tale of a telekinetic teenage girl tormented by her peers. CARRIE is slated for a 2013 theatrical release.

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. Brian De Palma’s 1976 film version of CARRIE earned Oscar nominations for stars Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie.

MGM and Screen Gems’ CARRIE is produced by Kevin Misher (Public Enemies). J. Miles Dale (The Vow) serves as executive producer, and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Big Love) wrote the script from King’s original story. CARRIE’s creative team includes Director of Photography Steve Yedlin (Looper), Production Designer Carol Spier (Eastern Promises), Costume Designer Luis Sequeira (The Thing) and Editor Lee Percy (Boys Don’t Cry).

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Oh good gravy. Carrie is a classic, both the book and the movie. There is no way in Gods green Earth that this remake will be even close to as good, let alone better, than the original. And seriously, slamming Kings writing? Carrie is a great book, but it was his first. That said it’s still far above “average”. Just look at “the Green Mile”, “The Shawshank Redemption”, and “The Body” aka “Stand By Me” for a few examples of his superior work. He’s had a few stinkers as well, if anything sometimes his stories feel as if he has no idea how to end them. But when he does pull it all together, as he has far more often then almost any other writer, King proves he isn’t just one of the best writers alive today, but one of the best ever.

    No thanks. And seeing Julianne Moore as Mrs White I can already tell Piper Lauries performance is better. Just seriously why does Carrie have to be remade? The original has a perfect cast. If its not broke dont fix it.

      Really? You can tell that from a photo? LOL I think Julianne’s a great choice and am really looking forward to this version since it’s supposed to be closer to the book than De Palma’s was.

        And Stephen King made his version of The Shining that was closer to the book than Kubrick’s. The end result shows why King should get down on his knees and kiss Kubrick’s now dead ass for turning his dull novel into a silver screen classic.

        King himself admits he’s a burger and fries writer, at his best (and Carrie was that) he’s average. DePalma has had moments of brilliance and he created a better movie out of the original source material than King deserved.

        There’s no non-financial/lack of creativity justification for this one.
