For unknown reasons, Sony’s reboot of CARRIE has been moved from it’s Spring debut, to an October 18th release date.
I’m guessing the reason for the bump is due to Sony wanting to spread their highly anticipated horror’s apart from each other (the other being EVIL DEAD, which opens April 12th), for marketing and revenue purposes. Or, Kimberly Peirce’s take on Stephen King’s novel needs some work/touch-up in the VFX department. If anything, we’ve got another horror film to look forward to once October rolls around again.
Synopsis: “The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White and her daughter Carrie. Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson, but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell, regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross, to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc.”
