Let Me In Poster

Innocence Dies. Abby Doesn't. Okay, I hate to be overly critical of this poster, but I'm not really digging that tagline. That said, I can tell you that the movie kicks ass and does live up to the original. Overture Films has debuted two final posters from the viral website for Matt Reeves' Let Me In, starring Chloe Moretz as Abby and Kodi Smit-McPhee. I like the designs and their subtle use of blood-tinged imagery, but nothing will ever top this French poster for Let the Right One In. Buzz is definitely building up for this, and it's very positive buzz, so I hope a lot of you go into this as optimistic as possible. And check out these two new posters below!

Let Me In PosterLet Me In Poster

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. I highly suggest seeing this at its opening!

I like the first one the most.

The second (to me) is incredibly cheesy. Kind of made me cringe.

Let me out

First one is waaaay better, second one is cheesy as hell.

LINKFX on Sep 9, 2010


the second one would have been better if blood was smeared in the snow angel. First one is good though.

Stupidest tagline of the year. Also: hello Photoshop. I fear that Moretz may one day become entirely pixels, what's wrong with letting a girl look like a girl -- why do they have to Photoshop her to high heaven?

I'm thinking about the original movie... and how the look of the little girl made the character subtley terrifying. Chloe does not have that look. And I'm not nit-picking on the remake... I'm just worried that it will not be convincing in anyway to see her prancing around as a cursed little vampire.

I guess not. Woo-hoo, I can still be cynical!

Bullshit! The second poster is great too. Angel = cheesy? Ridiculous ....

@cracky: Chloe does not have that look? The girl in the the original movie was so ugly, man. It was hard for me to watch the movie ...

Razor on Sep 9, 2010


Personally, I think Chloe is too cute looking, and the "angelic" design of the second poster doesn't help, either. Eli had this really dark, unsettling asexual look. She looked more feral than anything else; it was hard to tell if she was indeed a girl or maybe a boy, and it was only revealed later in the movie. I really liked that, because it made the character very mysterious and all the more dreadful. Anyways, I will give this one a shot, too. Maybe it can win me over despite all this.

No in this one the boy is the one who will keep you guessing as to whether its a boy or girl, in fact I think they got their roles reversed in this.

Jimmy Love on Sep 10, 2010


I have a feelig it's gonna suck.. but I hope I'm wrong!

Lincoln on Sep 10, 2010


Lol @ 12: I feel you, man. But like #13 said, part of the whole vibe of the movie was that you didn't really know WHAT she was... and she even gave play-on-word hints, as well. I'm telling you-- and many will probably disagree, but-- Chloe was a bad pick. Unless she pulls something wicked, this might be really stale.
