Four international character banners have debuted for Fright Night, director Craig Gillespie’s 3D remake of the cult-hit 1985 horror-comedy.
The DreamWorks film, which opens Aug. 19 in the United States and Sept. 2 in the United Kingdom, stars Anton Yelchin as Charlie Brewster, a high-school student whose life is derailed when he discovers his new neighbor (Colin Farrell) is a murderous vampire. Fright Night also features David Tennant, 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.
