Update #1: We’ve added three more clips. The first has Jerry asking to be let in because Charlie is “harassing” him. Charlie begs his mom to ignore him. The second you’ll see Charlie asking Peter Vincent (David Tenant) to join his “Scooby” gang, while the last has Vincent declaring, “let’s go kill something.”
Update #2: Below you’ll find a hi-res look at Chris Sarandon – who starred as the vampire Jerry in the 1985 original – in his cameo role. He plays another driver on the road during the chase sequence you can see in the trailer. Spoiler warning: He hits their car, gets out and asks why they were stopped — then he sees Jerry. “It’s stupid,” says BC, who saw the movie the other night.
In theaters this Friday we’ve posted yet another clip from Craig Gillespie’s Fright Night 3D featuring Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) having a conversation with his mother (Toni Collette) about their new neighbor, Jerry (Colin Farrell). Charlie warns his mom NOT to acknowledge or let Jerry in the house, as it may be dangerous. Little does Charlie know, this bit of information got his mom excited. I can picture her internal conversation now… “Jerry’s a bad boy? Does he ride a motorcycle too? He DOES?! Come right in, up the stairs, to my room…I need a second to freshen up.”
In the R-rated remake to Tom Holland’s classic: “Senior Charlie Brewster 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 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, 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. ”
