Screen Gems had previously released the following summary of the film:
The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White (Moore) and her daughter Carrie (Moretz). Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Greer) tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson (Doubleday), but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell (Wilde), regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (Elgort), to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc.
The original Carrie was released in 1976 and was directed by Brian De Palma. The film starred Sissy Spacek, Piper Laurie, Amy Irving, John Travolta, William Katt, Nancy Allen, and P.J. Soles. The film grossed over $25 million at the box office and was nominated for two Academy Awards, Best Actress (Spacek) and Best Supporting Actress (Laurie).
