Here we have the third trailer from Craig Gillespieâ€™s upcoming remake of Fright Night courtesy of the guys over at Empire. Unlike much of the others, this one has much more darker overtones which leaves some of the comedy behind. Check it out below.
Synopsis: â€œSenior Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all going on: heâ€™s running with the popular crowd and dating the most coveted girl in his high school. In fact, heâ€™s so cool heâ€™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 thereâ€™s something not quite rightâ€”but everyone, including Charlieâ€™s mom (Toni Collette), doesnâ€™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.â€
Fright Night hits theatres on August 19, 2011.
