Things are starting to heat up at Comic-Con. Or maybe cool down… DreamWorks Pictures has announced that they're kicking off a Fright Night Fan Frenzy contest for Comic-Con 2011, that will include cast appearances at a Hall H panel on Friday, a party, and advance screening of the remake directed by Craig Gillespie, starring Anton Yelchin and Colin Farrell. It all kicks off with a social media "campaign" that encourages fans to use their social feeds on Facebook, Twitter and blogs to share movie content and check in to real world events to collect points. At the end of each week, the fan with the most will win a killer prize.
DreamWorks Studios is pleased to present a special insider look at its upcoming, 3D reimagining of the horror classic Fright Night at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International Convention. On Friday, July 22, a panel presentation will be held in Hall H of the San Diego Convention Center. On the dais will be talent from the film, including Colin Farrell, Anton Yelchin, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Imogen Poots, director Craig Gillespie and screenwriter Marti Noxon. Activities also include a fan appreciation party as well as a screening in advance of the film's opening in theaters on August 19th. That's quite early!
