New Fright Night Banners Online
It's shock and gore

New Fright Night Banners Online

The new-look Fright Night, given a modern shake by DreamWorks, promises to give the tail-end of our summer a splash of bloody carnage. Whether it'll mirror hard-to-nail tongue-in-cheek tone of the original or lurch towards altogether darker shades remains to be seen. The trailer suggested (b), while the cocked eyebrows and coy looks in these new banners says (a). 

The massed ranks of fandom will be the first to find out. The movie is making its official bow at Comic-Con next month, with the tooled-up quartet - Colin Farrell, Imogen Potts, Anton Yelchin and David Tennant - popping up in San Diego to talk about the movie and hopefully thrash out a correct spelling for the word 'neighbor' 'neighbour'. 


Fright Night sees Yelchin reprise William Ragsdale's role as Charley Brewster, a high schooler who notices a series of mysterious disappearances in his home town. His amateur sleuthing, aided by his pal “Evil” Ed Thompson (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), lead him to the door of the charming, charismatic Jerry (Farrell), a vampire that's all done hiding out.

Needless to say, Jerry is deadly and charming in that way that people have when they want to part you from your hemoglobin. Cue stage-magician-turned-vamp-fighter Peter Vincent (David Tennant) and a whole world of bloodshed.

Fright Night is out on September 2. Head here for a gander at the trailer.

Cool posters, bad Photoshop!
I like them overall - people who are complaining that they're cheesy and clichéd are clearly forgetting that it's a Fright Night, not Interview With The Vampire - but there's definately a couple of entrants for your Photoshop Hall of Shame. Imogen Poot's face definately doesn't belong with that body, or at least not that shot of it. Worse still is David Tennant. How long is his bloody left index finger! And why on earth would the cruciform foresight on his gun (nice touch) be facing side More

Zoolander.
Has Tennent been to the Derek Zoolander school of facial expressions?! Is he pulling Magnum or Le Tigre in these posters?! More

Mugged Off
Tennant looking as hammy as ever. The Arched Eyebrow – I fear a mere taster of the shameless (and now trademark) mugging that’s to come. He’s so clichéd its painful. More

Tennant at Comic Con?
Has it been officially confirmed that David Tennant will be at Comic Con, considering that he is due to be starring on the London Stage that same day and as far as anyone in the production knows is not planning to ditch performances to attend a con? More

RE: Tennant!!!!!!!!!!
Should be decent and I like the banners. Cool character shots which tie into the film well. I read the script for this last year and at worst it'll be a fun film which is different enought - heavy setting in Vegas- to differntiate it's self from the original. Only draw back is the last act is almost identical. Unless of course they've changed it. More
