New Trailer for Fright Night Adds More David Tennant
Posted 06.06.11 by Ryan
Yet another trailer debuted during last night's MTV Movie Awards broadcast, and this time it's from director Craig Gillespie's Fright Night remake.
Based on the 1985 original and given an updating from Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series writer Marti Noxon, Fright Night still follows high school student Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) who finds out that his new neighbor, Jerry Dandridge (Colin Farrell), is a vampire. Once Jerry discovers that Charlie knows the truth, he must protect his mother (Toni Collette) and girlfriend (Imogen Poots) from Dandridge.
Also like the original, Charlie will get some help from supposed vampire expert Peter Vincent (David Tennant). In the original, Vincent is a late-night horror movie host, but, in the remake, Vincent is re-imagined as a Las Vegas magician. Vincent, so far, has been mostly absent from the movie's previously released promotional items like the trailer and preview clip. In the newly released trailer Vincent makes a much larger appearance.
