Fright Night

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?

I expect great things from this remake

I am not sorry to say that there can only be one Jerry Dandrige. My first on screen crush, Mr. Chris Sarandon. Sexy as hell! Sarandon and McDowell are fantastic character actors. I'm afraid that this cast will not do the original justice on any scale.

I don't know Yelchin, Farrell, Imogen, Mintz-Plasse, and Tennent are all great actors...this one might just surprise us.

I don't think Farrell got the screen presence to be a Vampire compared to the original.

Steve.....that is what Farrell has going for him above everything else.

McLovin in the fookin hooooos! Fright Night is an 80's classic, never see the remake at the flicks but will watch it when it's on sale for 99p in the dvd bin at Morrison's and it gets put online.

After "In Bruges" I'll watch anything Farrell makes.

He was excellent in "Ondine" as well. He just gets cast in too many dumb american movies.

Jertown on Apr 7, 2011


He was excellent in Crazy Heart, and that wasn't a dumb american film.

Not dumb, just bland.

I like all the actors involved-- and I am eagerly anxious to be surprised by this. In Bruges put more faith in me for Colin Farrell than I ever thought possible so I officially cannot help but love the guy.

You had me at Imogen Poots.

I walked into the screening of "Fright Night" thinking that it could never top the original. But i was proven wrong. This remake was awesome! and it was a lot better than i expected. I hope everyone checks it out.

I'm most excited for the Doct- I mean, David Tennant. No really, though. Most excited for him.

Anton Yelchin is one of the most talented young actors in Hollywood and I believe he will save Farrell from his crazy acting 😉
