If you discuss the new Fright Night in different social circles, for example a group of nerds and a group of non-nerds, you’re going to find different aspects of this film mentioned. For instance, a group of non-nerds may comment on what a sexy vamp Colin Farrel is (barf) or maybe that they’re totally done with vampire movies. The most likely response form the group of nerds will be, “David Tennant!! OMG! SQUEE!! DOCTOR WHOOOO! I LURVE HIM!!” Or something along those lines. And it doesn’t matter the gender of said nerd, we all are freakin’ adore David Tennant.
Funny then, how Tennant has been barely featured in the trailers. At least now with these new character posters we get a decent look at his vampire huntin’ magician, Peter Vincent. Check out the gallery below.
Senior Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all–he’s running with the popular crowd and dating the hottest girl in high school. In fact, he’s so cool he’s even dissing his best friend Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). But trouble arrives when an intriguing stranger Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there’s something not quite right– yet no one, including Charlie’s mom (Toni Collette), seems to notice! After witnessing some very unusual activity, Charlie comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on his neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone that he’s telling the truth, 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 opens nationwide August 19th.
