New shots from vampire remake Fright Night show David Tennant channeling magical Vegas douche-nozzle Criss Angel so hard, we kind of want to punch him in his guylinered face.
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.
Check out some more awesome images! I'm still extremely cautiously optimistic for this reboot, but things are slowly starting to look fun, and casting Toni Collette and David Tennant seems like it was a good move. Fright Night is one of the five all-time best vampire flicks, so the folks at DreamWorks have a lot of melty vampire face practical FX work to live up to. Giant taloned vampire fingers crossed this all comes together.
Fright Night hits theaters on August 19, 2011
