Kimberly Peirce’s ‘Carrie’ Gets Home Video Release Date

Carrie, Kimberly Peirce's remake of the 1976 iconic slasher film based on the novel by Stephen King, is helping you to ring in the new year in style.  Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment have announced that the film, which made over $60 million worldwide, will hit store shelves on January 14, 2014, eleven days after its debut on digital platforms.

The film, which stars Chloë Grace Moretz as Carrie White, a shy girl who is made fun of by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religions mother (played by Oscar nominee Julianne Moore).  When things get a bit out of control at her senior prom, the fragile Carrie unleashes a wave of telekinetic terror on her small town that leaves everyone looking for a way out.

Carrie will be releaded on Blu-Ray and DVD, with a heap of extras.  Included on the Blu-Ray disc is a behind-the-scenes featurettes, commentary from director Peirce, deleted and extended scenes, the hit "Telekinetic Coffee Shop Surprise" viral video and an alternate ending that you simply have to see to believe.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
