Kimberly Peirce Takes Us Inside Directing 'Carrie'

January 16th, 2014 12:15pm EST
Kimberly Peirce
Making a movie is hard, but in some respects, remaking a picture is even harder. That's the challenge that director Kimberly Peirce took on with Carrie, the third film inspired by Stephen King's classic horror novel. BFTV chatted with Kimberly on Friday to talk about the process of reimagining the People's Choice Award-winning flick, and what captures her attention when it comes to making movies.

"I fell in love with the novel," she told us, explaining how she balanced being faithful to King's work with bringing something new to the big screen. "I just thought Carrie was an amazing charact...

Chloe Moretz Says She Felt 'Vulnerable' In 'Carrie'

Chloe Moretz says her part in Carrie has been her "most vulnerable" film role.

The 16-year-old actress assumes the role of teenager Carrie White in a remake of the Stephen King novel and although she was eager to be cast as the female lead she is still anxious about people seeing it.

She explained: "It's probably the most vulnerable I've ever been as an actor, so in some ways it's kind of terrifying for people to see it, but at the same time it's very exciting and kind of an awakening for me because it's something I've never done before."

Box Office: 'Gravity' Should Prevail Over 'Carrie' Remake

October 18th, 2013 11:10am EDT
Gravity
1) Gravity- 31M Weekend, 165M Total

After dipping a mere 22% last week, Gravity is actually gaining back some of the IMAX screens it lost to Captain Phillips. Another similar drop for Gravity should keep it firmly in first place.

2) Carrie- 18M Weekend, 18M Total

The problem with Carrie is that it is a remake. And they’ve tried to bring Carrie back before (anyone remember Carrie 2?) and it hasn’t worked out well for anyone. The preview makes it seem like critics are loving it, but it only has a 48% on Rotten Tomatoes. It should do OK this weekend, but I don’t think it’s a smash hit.

This weekend, a new modern take on Stephen King’s Carrie opens in theater. Chloe Grace Moretz stars as Carrie White, the girl with telekinetic powers who gets teased by the high school mean girls. The new film follows the same story as King’s book and previous films, culminating in a prom night prank that sets Carrie off on a reign of terror. Moretz recalled shooting the fateful scene where she is covered in pig’s blood.

“At the end of the day, I was just the actor who had to stand there and get it dumped on me,” Moretz said. “They did something like 50 or 60 or 70 blood tests with one gir...

'Carrie' Star Julianne Moore Speaks Out Against Teen Bullying

Julianne Moore
Carrie is a story that has been around since Stephen King’s book was published in 1974. It may be more poignant than ever today, with teen bullying leading to suicides and sparking a national conversation. Julianne Moore stars in the latest film version of Carrie, as Carrie’s mother Margaret White. A mother of two herself, she is proactive about dealing with bullying.

“One of the things I always say to my kids, and this is back to the theme in Carrie too, is that the most dangerous thing for a person to feel is isolated,” Moore said. “So I’m like, ‘If you ever see a kid sitting alone, if t...

Carrie
The first official trailer for this fall's remake of Carrie has been released; and so far it looks a lot like the 1976 original -- cruel teen girls, bullying, and, of course, lots of pig blood.

Chloe Grace Moretz stars as the titular telekinetic teen in this modern update of Stephen King's 1974 horror novel, stepping into the role that made Sissy Spacek famous.

Julianne Moore stars as Carrie's mom, Margaret White, an overly religious, shut-in who believes that Carrie is possessed by the devil after learning of her telekinetic powers. Piper Laurie starred as Carrie's mom in the original.
