Last week the international trailer for Matt Reeves’ Let Me In, (the English-language remake of Let the Right One In hit the net and we posted it for all eyes to see. A few days later, the folks over at Empire have unveiled a new teaser poster for the film and it’s…a teaser. It’s nothing to write home about but it definitely sticks to the tone of the original film. Take a look…
The film follows an overlooked and bullied boy named Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee) who finds love and revenge through Abby (Chloe Moretz), a beautiful but peculiar girl with the weight of the world on her shoulders who turns out to be a vampire. The producers of the original were on board with this movie, which looks pretty close to the Swedish version.
Let Me In also stars Oscar nominee Richard Jenkins, who plays Abby’s caretaker/guardian in the film. Reeves has big shoes to fill with this movie. Hopefully he can pull off an adaptation that’s respectful to the source material and a stand out for American audiences.
Let Me In is scheduled to hit theaters on October 1, 2010.
What do you think of the first poster for Let Me In? Are you interested in seeing the film?
