Matt Reeves, the director of Cloverfield, knows that he faces an uphill battle with Let Me In, his remake of the Swedish film Let the Right One In. Or, as it were, his alternate take on the John Ajvide Lindqvist novel of the same name. This new version of the story has been met with a great deal of resistance from fans, as it was announced before the original film had even been able to move from festivals to US movie screens.
So Reeves came to the San Diego Comic Con with his core cast in tow: Kodi Smit-McPhee, Chloe Moretz and Richard Jenkins. (Sadly for me, the Elias Koteas fanboy, those were the only three appearances.) And Reeves brought along two clips that show the differences between this version and the original, and make a really strong case for taking Let Me In seriously. In short: the footage looked great.

Philip Seymour Hoffman‘s directorial debut Jack Goes Boating premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival as part of the Premieres category. Written by Bob Glaudini, the story follows a stoner limo driver who looks for different ways to improve his skill-set as a way to attract a girlfriend, and goes on a blind date, which “sparks a tale of love, betrayal, friendship, and grace centered around two working-class New York City couples.” Hoffman also stars in the romantic comedy, alongside Amy Ryan, John Ortiz, Daphne Rubin-Vega, and Tom McCarthy. Overture Films has released an official movie trailer for the film. Watch it now embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Last week we saw the first international trailer for Let Me In, the American remake of Let the Right One In. Now there’s a UK poster that sports a minimal, bloody design. But the US distributor of the film is in trouble, and after the heads of the company resigned last week, will we have to wait some time for the marketing push to begin in the States? Read More »
Bet you’d forgotten, or maybe didn’t even realize, that Edward Norton and Robert De Niro were in a gritty, sorta realistic prison thriller called Stone. We ran a promo trailer for the film in September of last year, but I never thought much about it afterward. Now there’s a trailer for the film, which has Norton in badass mode, and sporting some truly frightening cornrows. Check it out after the break. Read More »
Overture Films have sent over high resolution digital files of the first three photos from the Let The Right One In remake/adaptation Let Me In, directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) and starring Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road), Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass) and Oscar®nominee Richard Jenkins (The Visitor).
As you may recall, we posted these images over the past few days in low res (and in one case, a magazine scan). Check out both images in pristine quality, after the jump.

Yesterday we saw the first image from Let Me In, the new adaptation of the same novel that spawned the Swedish film Let the Right One In. The first image showed only Chloe Moretz as Abby, the vampiric young girl who forms an odd friendship with Owen, a boy in her new apartment complex.
Now there’s a new image that shows both Moretz and Kodi Smit-McPhee, who plays Owen. If you’ve seen the Swedish film you’ll recognize this as nearly a dead-on recreation of one scene. Does that help ease concerns about the nature of this new version? Read More »

Just as the teaser hits for the new Twilight movie, here’s word on a film that could be the polar opposite of Eclipse. Directed by Matt Reeves, Let Me In is the remake (or re imagining, as some have said) of the Swedish film Let the Right One In. It stars Chloë Moretz, who is also in Kick-Ass. As she starts to promote that film, she’s talking a bit about Let Me In, and describing a take on vampires that is quite different from that of Twilight. Read More »
