Two New Preview Clips from the Fright Night Remake
08.13.11 by BJSprecher
Touchstone Pictures has released two new preview clips from director Craig Gillespie's (Lars and the Real Girl) new movie, Fright Night, an updated remake of the 1985 comedy-horror classic of the same name. The movie centers around Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin), a high school student who is finally coming into his own. He's hanging with the cool kids and dating the hottest girl (Imogen Poots) in school. Everything seems great...until a vampire (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. While we don't get to see any of Farrell's suave-but-vicious character, Jerry Dandridge, in the new preview clips, we are treated to some of the great dialogue written by screenwriter Marti Noxon, who honed her craft in the comedy-horror genre as a writer and producer on the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series.
In the first clip, Charley is incredulous when his estranged friend, "Evil" Ed Thompson (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), tries to convince him that Jerry is a "Dracula" in need of a good staking.
In this clip, Charley goes to the Penthouse of Peter Vincent (David Tennant), a magician and performer who Charley thinks might be of some assistance in his quest to terminate Dandridge.
The cast of Fright Night includes Toni Collete, Lisa Loeb, Dave Franco, Will Denton, Chelsea Tavares, Emily Montague, Grace Phipps and Sandra Vergara, with a cameo appearance by original Jerry Dandridge, Chris Sarandon.
