Gotta admit, that first trailer for Craig Gillespie’s “Fright Night” remake really caught me by surprise. Imagine, it actually looked good! Following up on that, here’s your first clip from the movie, and features Colin Farrell’s vampire giving his teen antagonist played by Anton Yelchin a little bit of advice. Basically, “I’m gonna eat your mom and girlfriend”, but then I could just be reading it wrong.
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, and Toni Collette.
