They’re all going to laugh at you: Trailer for “Carrie”

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, then you know my disdain for remakes of classic films. Looking at the trailer for Evil Dead, and now this trailer for an (again) updated Carrie, I might be changing my feelings:

I know that it’s not wise to judge a movie by its trailer, but what I see here is a smart update that works to blend the soul of the original movie with today’s socially relevant trappings. Can’t you just imagine how many of us would’ve seen Sissy Spacek’s, uh, menarch back in the 70s had social media existed then?

The Carrie update stars Julianne Moore and Chloe Grace Moretz in the titular role.
