Well, they certainly aren’t worried about spoilers.
And to be fair, director Kimberly Peirce and the makers of “Carrie” don’t have to be. You’d be hard pressed to find anyone in a square mile that doesn’t know how the tale of the telepathic teen ends. Sadly, the blood-soaked prom is likely the only scene people can recalled from Brian De Palma’s original 1976 adaptation of Stephen King’s first novel.
The new trailer for the 2013 version (via Yahoo! Movies), starring Chloe Moretz as Carrie White, essentially tells the story from beginning to end, including several memorable scenes from the book and De Palma film like Carrie’s run-in with her classmates in the gym showers.
Check out the full trailer after the jump!
The preview gives us our first glimpse at what is probably the scene everyone is wondering about, the prom. The little we do see from inside the gym hints at a much more elaborate scene than the version with Sissy Spacek, with CGI helping Carrie toss tables and students around the prom.
After the trailer, the credits instruct you to call Carrie at (207) 404-2604, which plays a recording of Moretz asking who is calling and then Julianne Moore locking her in the closet and telling you never to call. It’s, honestly, pretty creepy and toll-free!
“Carrie” opens in theaters on October 18.
