DreamWorks sent Major Spoilers a slew of images from the upcoming Fright Night movie, that arrives in theaters on August 19, 2011.

Senior Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all—he’s running with the popular crowd and dating the hottest girl in high school. In fact, he’s so cool he’s even dissing his best friend Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). But trouble arrives when an intriguing stranger Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there’s something not quite right—and everyone, including Charlie’s mom (Toni Collette), doesn’t notice. After witnessing some very unusual activity, Charlie comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on his neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone that he’s telling the truth, Charlie has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy-horror classic.

  1. Despite a deep dislike for remakes i think i will actually watch this one. It’s already ahead of the original simply through the absences of Chris Sarandon and that kid that played Evil Ed.

  2. Why is it that I’ve seen pics of David Tennant in the movie, but no one is actually mentioning his name? All the releases and trailers seem to play up Toni Collette and Colin Farrell. I understand Tennant may not have the cache in the US that Farrell does, but he’s at least as well known as Toni Collette.

    i agree with chris b, david tenant rocks! and should be given more credit and mention. he single handedly brought doctor who back to popular status. bet if he was in a stupid harry potter movie, he would get more mention in this movie.

    • Uh, David Tennant WAS in a Harry Potter movie. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire to be exact. Man, those sour grapes must really pucker your mouth now.

        yeah, my bad. never saw it as i’m not a fan of potter. what’s really gonna suck is those nuts in yer mouth as you crying like a little girl when the last movie is finally over and you realize no more potter.

            i hope your post was as much towards andrew h. as it was me. i agree whole heartly with your policy but if someone throws a jab or shot at me, i will reply according. if someone wants to correct me, fine no problem but don’t throw insults or wise cracks in there. i can be as civil as the next person and respectful as long as that respect is returned to me.

        • Saw a Tom Baker episode in the 80’s and thought it was cheap crap. Saw the first 30 mins. of the 90’s movie, thought it was higher budgeted crap. Never felt the need to revisit it. Never will. Deal with it, junior.

          • That seems a slightly odd sentiment. What does the 80’s version quality have to do with the current show? And why would anyone else have to deal with the fact that you aren’t going to watch the new series? How would that affect anyone else in any way?

            Oh well, I’m not really looking forward to this remake but I’m not against it either. I own the original and enjoy it and this one may be good but I don’t really have the nostalgia to the original to make me see this one and it just doesn’t look good enough to really drag me out of my house and to a theater. Anymore I tend to only go to the theater for big movies like Thor, Captain America, Harry Potter, and other things like that or to another theater that serves food in the theater while you watch the movie and they air old movies every week too. We saw Breakfast Club and Blues Brothers a few weeks ago.

    • he single handedly brought doctor who back to popular status…

      The Doctor Who relaunch was wildly popular BEFORE David signed on, actually. The first season had Christopher Eccleston, you might recall…

        i remember the first season, and i also remember that Christopher Ecclestondidn’t last that long as the doctor. i was never that impressed by his version of the doctor anyway. tenant had more personality in his one finger as the doctor than Christopher Eccleston ever did.

        • i remember the first season, and i also remember that Christopher Ecclestondidn’t last that long as the doctor.

          The Ninth Doctor’s tenure was one season by the actor’s choice, and if not for the popularity of Series 1 (and, to some degree, Billie Piper) there might not have been a Tenth Doctor immediately… The show exploded in popularity during that first season, and thus, we have more Doctor Who. I prefer Ten over Nine as well, but we gotta give credit where credit is due. :)
