Watch: Chloë Moretz in 'Carrie' teaser

The teaser trailer for 2013's "Carrie" makes great use of a familiar image from the original 1976 film, but actress Chloë Moretz says one shouldn't mistake this for a straight remake.

As the 15-year-old told CNN contributor Jennifer Vineyard at New York Comic-Con, director Kimberly Peirce is offering "a retelling of the book by Stephen King, and it hasn't been told this way before."


Previously adapted in 1976 by Brian De Palma, the story follows telekinetic and social outcast Carrie, who brings about destruction on her prom night. Sissy Spacek portrayed the teen in De Palma's classic, and Piper Laurie starred as Carrie's abusive mother.

Next March, it'll be Moretz and Julianne Moore filling those roles. Although we don't see Moore in the teaser trailer, we do hear voiceovers discussing the mother and daughter as the camera pans over a street engulfed in flames.

"This was always such a peaceful town," says one, while another voice follows: "Her mother was a fanatic. I don't know how she lived with it."

And then, as the camera creeps up on a blood-soaked Carrie, "There's something no one seems to understand. ... She's just a girl."

What do you think of the teaser? "Carrie" will arrive in theaters March 15, 2013.

    The original Sissy Spacek version was so good I took a half dozen co-workers to see it during working hours. And what a performance by Piper Laurie! Wow! Don't see anything in the remake trailer that inspires me to see it.

      It's The Rage: Carrie 2.

      It's not a remake of the other Carries. The girl's name isn't even Carrie in that movie. It's something else and it's an entirely different setting and back story though the sentiments are the same.

      chloe is not anywhere close to ugly or fat. she is a pretty good actress if you've seen "let me in". i myself am not to crazy about remakes, and carrie was remade in 2002 as a made-for-tv remake but lets see what chloe can bring to it before you shoot your mouth off.

    This will be a great movie. I think it will stand on its own without being held to the scrutiny of being a remake. It would still be nice to see an original idea come out of Hollywood sometime this year though.
