Gym teacher's name mistake: Desjardin or Desjarolin?[edit]

Someone wrote "Rita Desjardin" or "Mrs. Desjardin" instead of Desjarolin, like it's seen on the movie when people were voting for the King and Queen of Prom. Another thing which it should be replaced. Thank you.

Cutting and pasting the plot description from an earlier film adaptation, or from the original novel, is not very helpful. The movie isn't even edited yet, so nobody knows the plot in detail as it will play out in the upcoming movie. That summary should be deleted until a real one can be written.184.175.6.189 (talk) 00:21, 15 November 2012 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.155.87.152 (talk)

Plot summary for a movie that doesn't exist yet?[edit]

Cutting and pasting the plot description from an earlier film adaptation, or from the original novel, is not very helpful.

Alternate Ending[edit]

There exists an alternate ending for movie, which leaves out the court scene, voiceover and grave cracking. Sue visits the grave, places the white flower there, but right then, gets a contraction. The next scene shows her trying to give birth in a hospital, but she experiences pain that is far beyond normal, until struggles and writhes until a full grown hand covered with blood emerges from inside of her and attacks her. It is revealed that this last scene was a nightmare, from which she, even though her mother is comforting her, is unable to awaken. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kaustubh.karkare (talkcontribs) 07:20, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

Typographical error[edit]

There is a typagraphical error in the first paragraph that I cannot correct since I am unable to edit. it says "a script that is reportedly more faithful to Kin's original novel", obviously it should say "King's original novel". Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sir0zeke (talkcontribs) 01:50, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

It was fixed. Thanks, Erik (talk | contribs) 02:32, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Cast Addition[edit]

Please add Portia Doubleday as Chris Hargensen, main antagonist -- rather important role!

And why is this article 'locked' anyway? Already getting vandalized? 66.81.249.226 (talk | contribs) 22:40, June 20, 2013

Because some editors have been persistently violating policy by repeatedly adding uncited material to the article. When you add material, you have to cite a reliable, published source, per the site's Verifiability policy.
Also, please make sure you sign your talk page posts, which makes it easier for everyone to know who they're addressing. You can do this by typing four tildes (~~~~) at the end of them, which also automatically time stamps them. (For now, though, don't worry, I added the stamp to your message.) Thanks.

Block[edit]

Due to persistent violations of Wikipedia's Verifiability and Source Citation policies, this article is blocked to all non-admin editors for one month. The block will end October 12. If you have information you'd like to add, and it is accompanied by a reliable source, mention it here, and I will add it. Thanks. Nightscream (talk) 23:50, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

Threre was a promotional stunt posted on youtube that has over 28 million views. MatrixM (talk) 04:25, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

Needs Editing for Grammar & Clarity[edit]

This article needs to be edited for clarity, grammar, and spelling. It doesn't use past or present tense consistently. I would make edits myself, but the article is locked. Here are some of the poorly worded sections or instances of misspelling. Would someone please edit these?

  • "...she makes a crack - in the shape of a line..." (Cracks are always in the shape of a line, right?) (poor word choice)
  • "...a young girl in her last 3 months of her senior year in high school..." (High school seniors aren't "young girls".)
  • "surprisingly at age 17 or 18..." (the author of the article should not include any opinions with regards to the story, as this is a neutral summary. Also, no assumptions should be made regarding the age of the characters at the time of a certain event.)
  • "...Chris has always hated Carrie and in fact, hates Carrie the most." (Hates her the most? The most of what?)
  • "...tells her she wont go..." (apostrophe)
  • "...Chris, felling like..." (spelling)
  • "...When its time..." (apostrophe)
  • "it's blood..." (unnecessary apostrophe)
  • "...counter-fitted..." (counterfeited)
  • "...she admited..." (admitted)
  • Throughout the written plot, changes of tense occur frequently.

Overall the Plot, even disregarding any grammatical/spelling errors, is awfully written, with poor vocabulary and word choice. Because I have not seen the movie and cannot rewrite the plot without risking chronological error or error of content, I ask that anyone willing to rewrite the article properly and eloquently do so. Thank you.

Why is this still locked, as of October 17th? --Tamarind7 (talk) 02:50, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Also, plot material needs to be written in the present tense, not the past, per WP:PLOTPRESENT. Why are there passages like "Carrie had her very first period (surprisingly at the age of 17 or 18). This being her first period she thought she was bleeding to death."?? Did this happen in flashback, or something? If so, then it should indicate this.

As for the protection, it has been lifted. Nightscream (talk) 03:29, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

It's the 28th. Protection has not been lifted. 12.233.147.42 (talk) 21:34, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, my mistake. It should be lifted now. Nightscream (talk) 03:35, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

Plot Inaccuracy: Tommy Ross' death by a bucket[edit]

"The bucket falls onto Tommy's head, knocking him unconscious" I believe it actually kills Tommy as Sue Snell refers to him being among the dead in the court testimony. Sorry no source at the moment since the movie just came out and interviews are spoiler free. 98.118.130.201 (talk) 18:10, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

We don't know if he died from the bucket impact, or one of the various other impacts initiated by Carrie, or the subsequent fire that consumed the school. Therefore, all we should indicate in the plot is what we see during that one scene: That the bucket knocked him unconscious. His death can be mentioned subsequently though, so I added that near the end of the synopsis. Nightscream (talk) 23:08, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

But how can it still says that Tommy Ross got killed by a bucket?!? That it's still inaccurate, I suggest that change and fast, as the first part of the comment wrote, because one does not simply gets killed by a bucket!

Lindsay Lohan's 2013 Halloween costume - Carrie[edit]

I don't know if this has any place in the article (Influence on popular culture section?), but I came across this Daily Mail article with photos showing that Lindsay Lohan chose to dress up as blood-stained Carrie to cohost a Halloween event at a Connecticut casino. Since this happened with the film currently in theaters, there is an obvious connection on her part to ride with the publicity, which is a smart move I guess. I want to note this here in case it has any future use. 5Q5 (talk) 19:21, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

In the cast section, it says Chloe Moretz, the E in Chloë should look like this (Ë). You're also missing her middle name, GRACE. SalMarra927 (talk) 03:44, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

@SalMarra927: Do you have a verifiable reliable source for that info?   — Jeff G. ツ (talk) 03:46, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Plot[edit]

The plot summary is waay too long. Most plot summaries are held at a restriction to be under 700 words.--Norgizfox5041 (talk) 15:00, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

The plot length is fine, IMO. It's certainly more succinct than it was when someone added a ridiculous blow-by-blow right after the movie premiered. Nightscream (talk) 20:04, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
Currently the plot is over 1,000 words, when the maximum is 700 per WP:FILMPLOT. Someone definitely needs to trim it up, I would do it myself, but I have not seen the film. STATic message me! 20:42, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
I agree that the plot summary needs to be trimmed. Per Wikipedia's policy at WP:PLOT, "Wikipedia treats fiction in an encyclopedic manner, discussing the reception and significance of notable works in addition to a concise summary." WikiProject Film's guidelines are based on this policy. We are supposed to write plot summaries to provide context for the rest of the article body. Nightscream, are you disagreeing with this assessment? Erik (talk | contribs) 21:01, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
That certainly sounds reasonable. I simply don't know what could be trimmed without harming the synopsis' clarity, or its ability to explain to the reader what happens in the film. Nightscream (talk) 22:56, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
Which is why I requested copy edit on Wikipedia:WikiProject Guild of Copy Editors/Requests, and right now the Copy Editor, User:JudyCS is working on it.--NeoBatfreak (talk) 20:23, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

In the Plot section where it first mentions Carrie, it's missing the name of actress Chloë Grace Moretz 108.29.8.135 (talk) 06:30, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

Not done: please be more specific about what needs to be changed. Does this concern the trema (two dots) above the "e" in "Chloe"? --Anon126 (talk - contribs) 23:44, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Box office gross error[edit]

Due to it being Christmas time, Carrie's overseas gross on Box Office Mojo is just an estimate which gives it's overall gross a mere $78 million which was its last update 2 weeks ago. However, a more accurate website from Thr Numbers gives the actual overseas figures as well as an Unpdate last week and the website has been used for many wiki movie articles due to Box Office Mojo losing count on them.

The box office revenue on this page should be edited to: $80,297,909
