It's now coming out on October 18.

Bad news, “Carrie” fans. The upcoming Kimberly Peirce remake has been bumped back to an October 18, 2013 release date. It was originally slated to come out on March 15, but Sony has decided to shuffle its release schedule.

Box Office Mojo has the news. Hopefully this isn’t a sign that the film is going to end up being bad, because the teaser we saw for “Carrie” looked fantastic. If anything, it might have been determined that the horror remake would do better closer to Halloween, which makes sense.

The movie stars Chloe Moretz as the titular Carrie and Julianne Moore as her religious fanatic mother. Based on what we’ve seen, it looks like this will be a pretty close — albeit updated — take on Stephen King’s classic novel. The money shot of Moretz covered in blood in the teaser looked fantastic when it was finally revealed.

Here’s the official synopsis for the remake:

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.
