The Carrie trailer is here

Now, it's not normal for us to be so intrigued by a remake but the upcoming Carrie remix looks like it might just work.

Directed by Kimberley Peirce, who certainly knows a few things about teenage angst (she directed Boys Don't Cry), and starring Chloe Grace Moretz, who impressed us in Kick-Ass and Let Me In, as Carrie, it certainly has a fine pedigree.

Oh and did we mention that Julianne Moore is playing her mother?

This first teaser has us a bit excited too as it gives a restrained look at the mayhem to come. The film is supposed to be a more faithful adaptation of Stephen King's classic novel while Moretz herself has already compared it to Black Swan.

What do you think?

Carrie hits cinemas on April 5th
