After watching “Let Me In,” the American remake of “Let The Right One In,” I was waiting for Chloe Moretz’s next dark role. When I heard she had the lead role in the upcoming “Carrie” remake, I was more than excited to see the film. Now it looks like the original release date in March has been pushed all the way back to October.
Well, I wish I could say this was a huge surprise, but it actually makes a lot of sense. Originally slated to open in March, the CARRIE remake is now being bumped to October, which steers it clear of another remake that’s still on course to open dangerously close, that being the EVIL DEAD remake.
A horror movie being pushed to October…can’t say that I’m surprised. A release during the month of Halloween probably means a bigger opening weekend due to the fact that most people will be in the horror mood during the month of Halloween. I’ll admit that I am disappointed that I have to wait that much longer to see the film, but it’s probably a smart move.
