DreamWorks has unleashed their second full trailer for the 3D remake, Fright Night. Watch it down below and sound off with your thoughts. The vampire tale stars Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, David Tennant, Imogen Poots and Toni Collette. Helmer Craig Gillespie led the direction, based on a screenplay by Marti Noxon.

Plot Concept: Senior Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all going on: he's running with the popular crowd and dating the most coveted girl in his high school. In fact, he's so cool he’s even dissing his best friend. But trouble arrives when Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there’s something not quite right—but everyone, including Charlie's mom (Toni Collette), doesn't notice. After observing some very strange activity, Charlie comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on the neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone, 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 arrives in 3D/2D theaters August 19, 2011. 



Thanks to madmanic999 for the submission.

Im reading alot of negative ninnies all crying about the remake process... Yes the original was great but as Im seeing with alot of classics, they just cant be related to by todays kids...

 

but yeah this new trailer features some nice Tennant stuff... Im looking forward to this

 muddseye:  Just like the classic Universal movies that we all still love and enjoy...the original Fright Night holds up very well.  I think you are underestimating today's youth.  Do they somehow lack the imagination to enjoy a movie that was made 20 years ago?  Do they need "in your face" action and violence?  I'm betting they can still get thrills from the classics.  And, yes, I do consider Fright Night an 80's horror classic.  

The ONE reason I'm even interested in this project is Tennant.  Otherwise, it would just be another remake.  I'm surprised that they are unable to come up with original stories in Hollywood and have to lean so heavily on remakes when it comes to horror films.  Is it really that hard?  I don't think so...just look at all the original concepts out there.  Many done on a shoe string budget.  And, I'm not including movies in the Saw franchise. Those are not horror...they are just gore porn.

When I read about remakes, I just shake my head. But when I think about it, I really don't care what they remake. It doesn't change how good the original was for me, and even makes me appreciate it a little more when the remake falls flat or is outright dreadful. Fright Night is one of my favorite vamp tales and this version looks like it might be ok. I won't see it in theaters, but I will watch it when it hits dvd. We know that most remakes really suck...but occasionally they get one right...True Grit was fabulous in my opinion, but it was the exception and not the rule. So i may feel uneasy every time they mention a new remake coming out (like Conan ugh ugh ugh), but I try to keep a clear mind until I see a trailer and get an idea of what we might be seeing.

There are tons of books with a horror comedy vibe that would make great movies and tv shows without all these remakes. One in particular by Larry Corriea titled Monster Hunter International and the sequal Monster Hunter Vendetta. It's about an office shlub who barely survives an encounter with the supernatural and winds up with a bizzare job offer. The third book in the series comes out in August Monster Hunter Alpha. I stumbled across this series six months ago in the book store looking for something different to read.

So is this "remake" not gonna have the comedy element?  Seems like a straight up vampire action/horror flick this time around.

 flyinroo:  True Grit was not a remake.  It was based on the book.  

VTGamehendge:  No comedy elements?  They may not be playing them up in the trailer, but I'm guessing that rapid firing stake gun Vincent has isn't supposed to be taken too seriously (although, the scene of vampie Jerry climging on the ceiling behind Vincent is straight out of the original.)  Evil Ed and Vincent were the comedy elements in the original.  Looks like, instead of a ghoul sidekick, the vamp gets an orgy pit of women.  That was another element and really funny moment with Vincent when they realize that the human companion wasn't really human. Is it possible that they are just downplaying Tennant's involvement because he isn't as well known to the masses?  I'm not for sure.  It seems like they are leaning much more on the known Farrell.  Maybe even giving it more a teen spin to lure in the Twilighters out there.  But, I agree, there were a lot of explosioins in that spot.

 I get your point, InnerSanctum, but 1.) I don't think Fright Night should be compared to Frankenstein, The Wolfman, Dracula, or The Creature From The Black Lagoon...I should think they're called Universal CLASSICS for a reason, and Fright Night, as much as I love it, is an 80's vampire flick...and 2.) Sad to say, but no, I don't think today's youth in general has the capacity, the patience, or the attention span to watch older movies.  I've tried showing younger friends some classic movies, (scifi, horror, and comedy), and they don't relate and don't get the jokes.  I love Fright Night, but I honestly don't think it's aged very well either.  I have plenty of favorite movies that I would like or not mind having remade just because the originals REALLY haven't aged well, my favorite among them being Excalibur - on a side note, I'm SICK of all the "true story" movies about King Arthur - GIVE ME MAGIC, MERLIN & THE HOLY GRAIL, DAMMIT!  *Sigh*...Anyway, just my two cents.

I would say that today's youth do appreciate the older movies, many see to look to those as inspirations to try something different with them. True, the movies are slower paced, but going to the Universal movies, they were a lot slower paced than the movies of the 80's, and yet they still have a foothold in movie history and culture. Look on YouTube and you would find plenty of fan-based versions by these amazing and very talented young film makes. Even the ones just messing around looks and plays in such interesting way. I saw the original Fright Night at Evergreen Plaza here in Chicago and loved it. I'm very excited with what I see here and I hope they do something special and unique with this version. I have no worry about what was done before, we can rent, buy, download, stream that movie and see it whenever we want until the human race is extinct (which maybe either October 21st or next year).
