Two More 'Fright Night' Photos Offer First Glimpse of David Tennant

Last month we got our first official look at Craig Gillespie's remake of Fright Night by way of a few photos with star Anton Yelchin and vampire villain Colin Farrell. Now a couple new photos show us some of the danger Charlie Brewster (Yelchin) finds himself in, and finally we also get our first glimpse at David Tennant as Las Vegas stage magician Peter Vincent. In the original, Vincent was a midnight movie host on TV tapped by Charlie to help thwart his vampire neighbor, but we're not sure how he'll be featured this time. Either way, seeing Tennant in full wardrobe as some kind of Criss Angel character is great. See them below!
Here are the photos from Fright Night courtesy of Collider:
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 (Toni 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 hits theaters August 19th this year. Look good?
Peter Vincent is replaced with Chris Angel? Pass.

I hope David Tennant does more American mainstream films from now on and joins the A-list.
