Fright Night

I think I missed this over the last couple of weeks until images started hitting the Internet. This time it's for a horror film, well actually a remake of the 1985 classic, Fright Night. Not only does the film star Colin Farrell but also Doctor Who, David Tennant.

From watching the trailer for the remake and compared to the original. It seems that the new version is a lot more gritty and, in a way, less comedic than the original. Not only that, the film is coming out in 3D! So don't expect any ground breaking use of the extra dimension, but more along the lines of what other horror films have given us when they throw 3D into the pot. I would expect to see crossbow bolts flying past the audience and the like...

I can't find an International, ie UK, trailer but the US, domestic, one is available and you can watch it below.
Senior Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all—he’s running with the popular crowd and dating the hottest girl in high school. In fact, he’s so cool he’s even dissing his best friend Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). But trouble arrives when an intriguing stranger Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there’s something not quite right— yet no one, including Charley’s mom (Toni Collette), seems to notice! After witnessing some very unusual activity, Charley comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on his neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone that he’s telling the truth, Charley has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy-horror classic.
