Fright Night trailer
It seems remakes are more prevalent than ever and we really can't dismiss the trend anymore just by saying people are buying the tickets for something to see at the weekend, the remakes are actually getting an audience, and some of them are getting better.
Fright Night looks like it might be one of the remakes that turns out to actually be good, and better than good. You can see why I'm thinking that from this new trailer.
The new Fright Night trailer lets us see Peter Vincent, played by David Tennant, it also has much more of the story with more of Colin Farrell, Anton Yelchin, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Imogen Poots.
Tennant looks pretty cool in the role and looks like he's up for the challenge, and I have to say that Farrell is actually looking like he's a great choice for the role of the neighbourhood vampire. That said I'm not so sure about a couple of the bigger action sequences in the film, perhaps that's the 3D element in one, but it does look like it could deliver a good remake.
Here's the blurb for the new Fright Night:
"Teenager Charley Brewster (Yelchin) guesses that his new neighbor Jerry Dandrige (Farrell) is a vampire responsible for a string of recent deaths. When no one he knows believes him, he enlists Peter Vincent (Tennant), the opportunistic host of his favorite TV show, to help him take down Jerry and his guardian."
I'm a fan of the original Fright Night, so it will have to do a fair amount to meet and beat my expectations, and this trailer is a first good step.
