Dreamworks continues an onslaught of press for Fright Night 3D with a third trailer that once again pushes the darker side of the vampire lore. Directed by Craig Gillespie for release on August 19, the remake to Tom Holland’s classic embraces its R-rating, and has been hoping to gain the attention of Twilight haters.
“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 right–but 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. ”
