Carrie Remake Has A New Poster: Plug It Up! Plug It Up!

By Jodi Clager | Trade News | January 4, 2013 | Comments ()


Remakes are the norm in Hollywood. I give up. I accept. However, maybe attempt to try something new with the posters. Google "Carrie remake poster" and you will find dozens of fan-made designs superior to this new official poster. (Although JoBlo is reporting this one may be fan-made. Gah.)

Meh. Here's a Christmas poster I found as well. If anyone calls the number, let us know what it says!
Side note: Does anyone know someone named Carrie? It just dawned on me that this book and movie may have fire-bombed the name from existence. What is Carrie short for? Carrington? Carrimas?

Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers by Anne Lamott | Explosions, Aliens, and Angst: Three Different Trailers or a Michael Bay Coming of Age Comedy?

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    I know at least two Carries. Both blond… Make that four if you count Carey Mulligan and Carrie Matheson… also blond.

  • lurker_erin

    I usually assume Carrie is short for Caroline, although that's not the case in the book. I know some Carries and Carys and they are all very nice.

  • kilmo

    Carrie Underwood, singer. Who LaineyGossip calls "Country Bitch," so take that as you will.

  • mats19

    Saw the first poster at a movie theatre over the weekend so unless some fan made them and sent them around it's got to be the offical one.

  • There are other pop culture Carries... Carrie Bradshaw and Carrie Mathison (Homeland)

  • First Call: Carrie answers, asking if you're from her school. She warns us her mother will not approve of said communications. Carrie's mom interrupts, Carrie gets a whoopin.
    Second Call*: Carrie's mom calls you back, goes Jesus on your ass (complete with Gospel hymn)
    Third Call*: Carrie's mom is STILL singing.

    Funny thing is, Manchurian Candidate had something similar to this when it was being released. It was more of a "Choose Your Own Adventure" over the phone, but it was still cool. Also, it's nice to know that this isn't another one of Sony's "Call this Number, have a character talk at you, and be treated to trailer audio for the last part of the call" efforts. The fact that it calls you back is interesting.

    *You have to opt in for the calls to continue, and from this point on it calls you back at random intervals. You can always opt out at any time.

    I called the number. There was a voice that said: 'WAZZUUUUUPPP?!'
    I think they're remaking the Budweiser toads into a movie.
    Equally necessary.

    Hey! My first crush in high school was a Carrie, and she was a sweet girl. She was the very definition of the girl next door. There were actually two Carries in my class, and they were both pretty nice. I can't speak to their shoe preferences, so you might have a point there.

  • I would say that's fan made since the new release date announced earlier this week is October. I think the studio knows when its film actually comes out.

  • Pinky McLadybits

    Ha! I didn't even notice that! Too many late nights playing Arkham City. Then I checked IMDB and the release date there is 3/15/2013. So it could be legit?

  • Jezzer

    In the book, "Carrie" was short for "Carietta."

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    So judging from these first two comments, and also Sex and the City, all Carries are crazy and/or evil. And also really like shoes.

  • BWeaves

    And have dirty pillows.

  • Joe Grunenwald

    I work with someone named Carrie. She is...pretty horrible. I don't know if it's because of her name, or if she's just an a-hole all on her own.

  • Superasente's-smartphone

    My sister-in-law's name is Carrie. It is short for "Attentionseekingcrazybird."
