First Look At David Tennant As Peter Vincent In <i>Fright Night</i>

DreamWorks has released two new images from Craig Gillespie’s 3D remake of the 1985 horror-comedy Fright Night, including the one most everyone has been waiting for: the first official look at Doctor Who‘s David Tennant as Las Vegas magician turned vampire hunter Peter Vincent. Talk about getting lost in a role; Tennant is virtually unrecognizable in that photo.

Fright Night, which opens on Aug. 19, also stars Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Imogen Poots and Toni Collette.

Senior Charlie Brewster (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 (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 (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.
