There’s nothing to laugh at in new Carrie trailer

Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore star in the creepy remake of cult classic Carrie


Carrie’s mum may have been worried that everyone would laugh at her psychokinetic daughter, but there are definitely no reasons to giggle in this trailer. There are, however, plenty of reasons to hide behind your sofa cushions…


Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore star in this creepy two-and-a-half-minute-long teaser trailer for the movie, which sees a small town transformed when a high school prom goes terribly, terribly wrong.

Moretz plays Carrie White, an outcast struggling to find her place at high school, while Moore is her fundamentalist mother Margaret who routinely locks her daughter in a cupboard to pray for forgiveness. When the taunting at school and her mother’s tough love approach becomes too much, Carrie realises that her anger can make bad things happen…

A remake of the 1976 film of the same name, Carrie is based on the novel by Stephen King, and is directed by Boys Don’t Cry’s Kimberley Peirce. The film also stars Judy Greer and Gabriella Wilde.

Carrie is in UK cinemas 29 November
