First Official Teaser Poster for Matt Reeves' Let Me In Unveiled
Okay, so I know this isn't really anything new or exciting that we haven't seen already, but I would be remiss if I didn't feature it for you guys to see today. Empire debuted the first official teaser poster for Matt Reeves' Let Me In, the Let the Right One In remake/re-adaptation, that we've been talking about excessively since the first trailer arrived a few days ago. You may remember seeing a few of the leaked concept posters for Let Me In last year, and this is pretty much just a finalized version of one of those, but it still looks really,really good. If this is only the teaser poster, I can't wait to see what the official poster for this looks like. Check it!
A bullied young boy (Smit-McPhee) befriends a young vampire girl (Moretz) who lives with her guardian.
Let Me In is both written and directed by American filmmaker Matt Reeves, who's feature directorial debut was J.J. Abrams' Cloverfield but prior to that he directed episodes of "Felicity" and various other TV shows. This is a remake of Tomas Alfredson's 2008 film Let the Right One In, or more specifically a re-adaptation of the Swedish novel Låt den rätte komma in written by John Ajvide Lindqvist. Overture Films is bringing Let Me In to theaters everywhere starting October 1st this fall. Does it look as good as you were hoping?

What exactly was the point of linking back to the article about the leaked posters *when you've already taken them down?*

massive rape of the original.

I can't believe they mentioned 'Director of Cloverfield'. dont think that was necessary, but i guess they feel the film won't run well or something and wanted that extra publicity.

I'm tired of people saying that this is a re-adaptation of the novel. It's not. Reeves was clearly using the film as the basis for his version, not the novel.

@Walter how do you know its not Reeves' version of the novel?

with this big "A Matt Reeves film" on the top they certaly can fool some people thinking this is a original idea. man, its a serious difficult period for hollywood movies.

Early screenings have stated that Reeves' film was basically a scene-by-scene remake of the original film complete with exact shots lifted. Furthermore, nothing from the book that wasn't in the original film was added and there was stuff exclusive to the first film (not in the book) that's present in this film. I've also read the early draft of the script and 90% of it is copied word for word from the original film.

I like the poster, what's up with Hollywood at the moment, it seems like they are hiring graphic designers again and not chimpanzees who just beat the keyboards.

Xerxex, this site has featured side by side shot comparisons from this film to the original movie. Not only does it look like a remake, it looks like at least some of the key moments are redone shot for shot. It's giving it way to much credit to say it's a re-adaptation of the book. The clothes are near the same as are the haircuts. And its not like the first one was some sort of unique adaptation for film of a book, the screenplay was written by the author and he has stated it's his preferred version of the story. This is a remake. Bear shot for shot as we all can tell. No creativity going on here although it doesn't look bad, it is unnecessary. It would be better if it were a re-adaptation.

who is matt reeves?..he directed cloverfield?.....yeah..still not excited.

I think they did it on purpose. In the trailer you see all the things that are the same. Who will tell us that Matt Reeves won't use stuff out of the book that weren't used in the original film. Time will tell, i guess. I'm excited to see it, i don't care how it's made.

Hopefully it's a new take on the book and not a remake of the swedish film...

I like the use of texture on the type for the main title. However, I wish poster designers would stop using Trajan so much.

I often wonder if these people ever stop to think how many viewers they lose just by printing the word "Cloverfield" in connection with a project??? soon as I see the name, I remove the offensive piece from my "movies to see" list...
