Last week, Daily Dead hit the red carpet in Hollywood for Kimberly Peirce's upcoming retelling of the classic Stephen King tale, Carrie. While there, we had the opportunity to speak with Chloe Grace Moretz and several of her co-stars, including Alex Russell, Cynthia Preston, Max Toppling and Zoe Belkin.

Written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and directed by Peirce, Carrie follows a shy outcast (played by Moretz) who discovers she possesses telekinetic powers and gets pushed too far after falling victim to a cruel prom night prank that forces her to unleash hell on everyone around her:

“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 (Portia Doubleday, Youth in Revolt), but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde, The Three Musketeers), regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (newcomer Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc.”

Check out Daily Dead's red carpet interviews below, as well as a few stills from the red carpet event, and look for Carrie in theaters this Friday courtesy of Sony Pictures and Screen Gems.
