First trailer for the Carrie remake shows the climax Stephen King always wanted you to see

We are beyond excited for Kimberly Peirce's Carrie remake, which promises to be much truer to the original book by Stephen King. This trailer contains the first actual footage we've been able to see, and we can already tell this is going to be a much larger scale production.

You can see shots of Chloë Grace Moretz (Carrie) unleashing her wrath upon not only the high school, but the whole town (which was in the novel but never executed in the original film by Brian De Palma.)

Plus there's a whole heap more of actual FX work — note the floating books. Once we saw the one girl's face fly into the school gym window, we got pretty excited. Let's just hope it doesn't get too slick. Carrie hits theaters on October 18th, 2013.
