Fright Night 2011

DreamWorks has released three brief new clips from their much-touted 3D remake of Fright Night, directed by Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl) and written by Marti Noxon (I Am Number Four), at the film’s YouTube channel. EW has an exclusive clip, while IGN has an exclusive red band clip.

You can check them out below this article.

There’s not much in the way of action or juicy gore on display in the YouTube videos, but in two of the clips we do get to see more of former Doctor Who star David Tennant as Peter Vincent, the reluctant vampire killer played by the late Roddy McDowall in the 1985 original. The IGN clip on the other hand features some intense action, flying dirt bikes, and a cool unbroken 360 degree interior tracking shot, while the EW clip shows what happens when a vampire comes up against a cross.

Week of Geek: SDCC 2011 Coverage - San Diego Comic Con

SDCC 2011: Fright Night panel: Colin FarrellThe Fright Night panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2011 included director Craig Gillespie, writer Marti Noxon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), and actors Colin Farrell, Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and last (but not least) as moderator, Chris Sarandon (from the original Fright Night).

Craig Gillespie was drawn to direct the remake because of how well the original was written. Writer Noxon was also drawn to updating the vampire genre for a modern audience.

Then they played a clip in which Mintz-Plasse’s character, Evil Ed, compares villain Jerry Dandridge (Farrell) to “the shark from Jaws,” a non-stop eating machine.

Farrell was reluctant to play Dandridge because he felt intimidated by Sarandon’s incredible performance in the original film. He was pleased by the fact that Noxon had updated the characters enough to make them their own.

David Tennant

The remake of Fright Night is right around the corner, to be released on August 19, 2011, and stars Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Imogen Poots, and David Tennant. With the countdown on, the studio has released some new international posters, focusing on the main characters, which you can see at the bottom of this post.

I’m looking forward to seeing this flick, but like I’ve mentioned in a few previous posts, when it comes to remakes it always counts to be cautious. Best approach this one with a “not sure if want” attitude, folks.

Having said that, however, the trailers thus far have looked impressive; and in addition we get to see Doctor Who‘s David Tennant on the big screen again. I know there’s a lot of Who fans out there that are anticipating this film simply because of Tennant’s role – and it could potentially be a bit of a springboard for the actor into some future bigger roles.

Here’s hoping so, anyway. Enjoy the posters…

Watch Now: David Tennant Appears In New ‘Fright Night’ Trailer

David Tennant

You know what? I was a little annoyed when the first trailers popped out for the upcoming remake of Fright Night. Don’t get me wrong – I like Colin Farrell and Anton Yelchin… but being a Doctor Who fan, I really wanted a glimpse of David Tennant. The first trailer gave us less than a second of the former Doctor.

Well, finally, we have a new trailer – and this time we get a really nice glance at David Tennant’s role in the new Fright Night, as he plays Peter Vincent, the vampire-hunting actor/hero. And not only do we get a glance – Tennant clearly has claimed the Vincent role as his own.

Now, being a horror fan, I have high doubts about all remakes and reboots. Only a select few seem to meet expectations, but the look of the new Fright Night seems to show some promise. Either way, I’ll reserve judgment for when I get to see the flick. In the meantime, check out the new trailer here below of Fright Night – with MORE David Tennant – which first aired during the 2011 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night.

Let’s kill something!

Fright Night

The cast for DreamWorks’ ’80s horror movie remake Fright Night is really turning into a excellent collection of names and talents. This is absolutely unexpected considering the film being remade and similar remake projects previously attempted.

It’s being reported that David Tennant and Christopher Mintz-Plasse have now joined the cast. Tennant is of course best known for his work playing The Doctor on Doctor Who, and Mintz-Plasse has become increasingly-popular beginning as McLovin in Superbad and going on to great parts in Role Models and the recent comic book hit, Kick-Ass.

Fright Night

DreamWorks is currently developing a remake of the 1985 horror film, Fright Night, and a pretty impressive cast has now been formed. Anton Yelchin (Star Trek, Terminator Salvation) was already a member of the cast, and now he is joined by Toni Collette (The Sixth Sense, The United States of Tara) and Colin Farrell (In Bruges, Miami Vice).

The movie follows a horror movie fanatic named Charlie who suspects that his new neighbor is actually a vampire. Obviously no one would possibly believe these suspicions, so Charlie has to go to the host of his favorite late-night horror TV show, Fright Night, Peter Vincent.
