First Fun Trailer for Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant
Universal has debuted the trailer for The Vampire's Assistant today on Moviefone. We also featured the poster for this yesterday. Much to our surprise, the title of this has actually officially change to Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant, as I complained yesterday about the original title The Vampire's Assistant being too confusing. This looks good, but it also looks like a vampire movie for kids, with a mix of comedy and creepiness that I don't think will sit well with older horror fiends. That said, much like City of Ember, I'm interested in checking it out because it looks like such a rich world that Paul Weitz is bringing us it into.
