I want to like this, because the 1976 movie was so awesome, but I'm just not getting it.
Except for the addition of mobile phones, I haven't seen anything in these clips that differentiates the new version of Carrie from the classic original. I just don't understand (beyond the purely financial) the motivation for remaking this, what does this version bring to the big screen that the old version didn't?
The trailers pretty much tell us the entire story and everything appears to go down exactly as it did almost four decades ago!
And I'm sure Chloë Grace Moretz will be fantastic in the title role, but she just seems so... normal, compared to Sissy Spacek's interpretation of the character.
