First Look: Chloe Moretz as 'Abby' in Matt Reeves' Let Me In
Here we go. The very first photo of the talented Chloe Moretz as vampire "Abby" in Matt Reeves' remake of Let the Right One In titled Let Me In has arrived and it's honestly not too impressive. Ohnotheydidnt is right in calling this shot "pretty underwhelming," it just seems like such a posed photo. I hope we eventually see a trailer that's a lot better than this, or Let Me In is going to tank because all the fans of the original will boycott it. Anyway, I'm trying to be as optimistic as I can with this film, especially after everything that Matt Reeves has said about it and even Chloe Moretz's passion for it as well. Check out the first look photo below.
This photo obviously comes from an upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly. ChloeMoretz.com scanned the photo and I found it via The Playlist. Moretz is definitely the best young US actor counterpart there is to compare with the original Lina Leandersson (as Eli), but this doesn't really get my hopes up. I'm also now really curious to see what Kodi Smit-McPhee looks like as "Owen" (the Oskar character) and how these two interact together in scenes - that will really be the make or break it moment. Stay tuned for updates on Let Me In, which Overture Films currently has scheduled to hit theaters on October 1st this fall. Thoughts?
