A Remake I'm Excited For?

So I know we're not overly fond of remakes, but it seems that although we've known for some time now that there is to be a remake of Stephen King's classic ; Carrie- The first pictures are FINALLY surfacing online. After surfing on horrorbid for a bit this morning, after finishing my ParaNorman review [you can read the review here], I noticed the news. So here I am to share it with you all! Whether you're aware or not, it's Chloe Grace Moretz who will be playing the famous telekinetic Carrie White; & although it's a remake- it's already looking really good. So without further delay, allow me to show you the pictures.

So here's the ORIGINAL Carrie White from the 1976 film.
[as played by Sissy Spacek]
Now that was 36 years ago and although some movies shouldn't be touched, and not be remade [I feel like I should be pointing a finger toward A Nightmare On Elm Street...] I think as good as Carrie was, it needs a good old touch up.. The film aged alright, but with Hollywood not having any imagination, why the fuck not? Now, below; here's the new picture of Chloe Grace Moretz playing Carrie White in the remake which is currently being made:

[in all it's bloody glory too!]———————————————————————————–
But let's not focus completely on Carrie.. I mean, can we really forget Carrie's mother? You know, the crazy bitch who kept assuming that Carrie was the was possessed, and evil? Well, as with all remakes- it won't be the same actress [Piper Laurie] playing Carrie's mother but rather Julianne Moore this time around.. Let me show you a comparison between the two :
[Here we have Piper Laurie as Carrie's Mother in the 1976 classic]
[& here is Julianne Moore as Carrie's mother in the remake-]
Based on these pictures, I dare you to say you're not excited ! [and for a remake..what are the odds?] But seriously, to leave this on a high note: I'm going to leave you with the first poster released for the remake, and the trailer for the original Carrie.
