‘Carrie’ Remake Trailer: Does It Get Better?

We all know the story: repressed, lonely, bullied teen becomes a laughing stock at prom and goes apeshit telekinetic, killing all of her tormentors. Now Carrie is back for a new generation because iPhones.

While the teaser seemed generally chilling and inventive, there isn’t much on display in this trailer that points to a fresh take. However, this is our first look at Julianne Moore as Carrie’s over-religious mom. She, of course, nails it even if this type of character seems extremely out of place in modern day. I think it’s time to hold judgement but in future previews I’d like to see an example of what sets this update apart from its predecessor besides the hairstyles.
