Must Watch: Colin Farrell Bares Teeth in First Trailer for 'Fright Night'
We've seen some glimpses at the remake of the original 1985 film, but now a first official trailer for Fright Night has finally arrived via IGN. This modern take on the 80's horror take thrusts Anton Yelchin, Christopher Miintz-Plasse, Toni Collette and Imogen Poots into a sticky situation as they found out Jerry (Colin Farrell), the new resident in their neighborhood is a vampire. This looks like a really cool contemporary update of the original film, but I'm not sure about the need for 3D in such a literally dark toned film. Sadly there is only a brief glimpse of David Tennant, but check out the first full trailer below!
Watch the first official trailer for Craig Gillespie's Fright Night:
Senior Charlie Brewster (Yelchin) finally has it all going on. He's running with the popular crowd and dating the most coveted girl in his high school. In fact, he's so cool he's even dissing his best friend. But trouble arrives when Jerry (Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there's something not quite right—but everyone, including Charlie's mom (Collette), doesn't notice. After observing some very strange activity, Charlie comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on the neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone, Charlie has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy-horror classic. Fright Night will hit theaters on August 19th.
