Check This Out: Another New Photo for Matt Reeves' Let Me In
A few days ago we brought you the very first photo of Chloe Moretz as Abby in Matt Reeves' remake of Let the Right One In. It seems that photo might've riled up some fanboys, as the LA Times has now published their own first look at Let Me In featuring an interview with director Matt Reeves address topics such as how this will not be anything like Cloverfield, which he directed, and why this remake isn't such a terrible after all. This photo shows Kodi Smit-McPhee as Owen giving a Rubiks cube to Abby (Moretz), which is a pivotal scene in the original film. "It's not going to feel like a movie with a crazy number of effects," he says.
"It's, hopefully, going to feel like an intimate coming-of-age story." Check out this second new photo below.
Reeves explains: "We tried to create the approaching, foreboding dread of movies like The Shining, where you feel like something wicked is unraveling and it's not going to end well. That's what I responded to about the original, the juxtaposition of those tones, this very disturbing story but at the center of it there are these very tender emotions. That's a very unusual mix, and that's what drew me in and dug into me." I'm on the edge with this film; I have a lot of faith in Reeves, I'm just not feeling these photos. But I'll give it a chance to surprise me just like the original Let the Right One In did. "It's a slow-burn kind of thing," Reeves says of his take, "which the original was, in a way."
