Take a gander at an extended clip from Craig Gillespie’s “Fright Night”, which apparently made its premiere over at Comic Con before now arriving online. In it, Anton Yelchin’s high school hero poses as a journalist in order to pick David Tennant’s showbiz character’s mind for thoughts on vampires. Cause, you know, his new neighbor Colin Farrell is a vampire and everything. Yeah, kid’s got lots on his mind, apparently. Sucks to be him.
Senior Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all going on: he’s running with the popular crowd and dating the most coveted girl in his high school. In fact, he’s so cool he’s even dissing his best friend. But trouble arrives when Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there’s something not quite right—but everyone, including Charlie’s mom (Toni Collette), doesn’t notice. After observing some very strange activity, Charlie comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on the neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone, Charlie has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy-horror classic.
Starring Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, David Tennant, Imogen Poots, Toni Collette, and directed by Craig Gillespie.
