Craig Gillespie's 3D horror comedy remake 'Fright Night' will be flapping its bat like wings into theatres very soon now. And to help the marketing campaign continue its snowballing effect iO9 have revealed a new still from the flick featuring David Tennant's character Peter Vincent. I must say I'm liking the 'Criss Angel'-like re-imagining of Vincent this time around compared to Roddy McDowall's incarnation in Tom Holland's 1985 original. Colin Farrell ('Phone Booth'), Anton Yelchin ('Star Trek'), David Tennant ('Dr Who'), Imogen Poots ('Chatroom', '28 Weeks Later') and Christopher Mintz-Plasse ('Superbad', 'Kick-Ass') all star. Check out the new still below.
"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 rightóbut 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' sees its UK release from 2 September. It'll hit US theatres from 19 August. You'll also be able to catch a preview of the flick at this year's Film4 FrightFest in Leceister Square on 27 August.
