First Look: Colin Farrell and Anton Yelchin in 'Fright Night' Remake
Hopefully we'll be seeing a trailer sometime soon, but for now our first look at Fright Night comes from a small batch of new photos introducing us to the film's characters. Since it's a remake, anyone can be aware of the film's story, but these photos make no secret of the fact that Colin Farrell is a vampire. In a way Fright Night is kind of like Rear Window but with a vampire twist, and much more blood. Below you can check out the photos that have Jerry Dandridge putting some fear into the heart of Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin), a soaking wet Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and the lovely Imogen Poots as the love interest.
Here are the photos from Fright Night courtesy of Cinematical:
Fright Night follows Charlie Brewster (Yelchin) a typical suburban kid who meets his new next-door neighbor (Farrell) only to quickly suspect that he's actually a blood-sucking vampire. His fears are confirmed when his life is put in danger and he watches his mother get put under a hypnotic vampire's spell. Then Charlie must team with a Vegas stage-show magician to slay the undead threat, and somehow save the day. Meanwhile his movie geek friend "Evil" Ed (Mintz-Plasse) somehow gets caught up in the mix. Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl) is at the helm of the DreamWorks remake working from a script by Marti Noxon (I Am Number Four, "Mad Men"). The film hits theaters on August 19th, 2011. Looking good?
