Carrie was a teenage girl. Bitches be crazy!

Spoiler:
IIRC, she wasn't killed in the book and managed to escape after Carrie started to set the gymnasium on fire.

I can't imagine anyone being better than Spacek and Laurie but since I like Moretz, I'll go see the movie.

She was laughing at her along with everyone else at the prom.

I agree. Moretz is the truth.

Not really, but that's how Carrie saw it in her mind before she went nuts.

If this gives the potential for a beefed up blu-ray release of the original, have at it.

The beginning of cinema. Remakes are hardly new.

I haven't seen the original movie in years, but it's certainly iconic. I'm not sure a remake could recapture any of that, but I'd be willing to check it out in the theater.

She's a good actress.

However, I am surprised to hear people say she's 'attractive'. I consider her to be very strange/goofy looking.

Which makes her perfect for this role.

Yeah. She can be pretty like any girl (you know wtf I mean). But...she's not like...Lohan was.

While she's obviously still young, I wouldn't consider her goofy looking.

I though Angela Bettis was great in the 2002 remake.

I don't think she's goofy looking either. She looks far better then Lohan to me, even pre-Lohan crazy.

They can just make her "Hollywood Ugly" the way they did Anne Hathaway in that princess movie. Bad perm, frumpy clothes, glasses.

I don't think she's goofy looking, and since when was Lindsay Lohan the standard for beauty? That's some silliness right there.

Moretz is the only reason I have any interest in this one. Right now she seems like she is very happy to get movie roles and gives her all each time. Basically, she hasn't hit the Lohan phase yet.

I think Melissa Leo would be great as the mom. It would be like a more twisted version of her character in Red State.
