In just a couple of weeks, we can all start arguing in earnest about the merits of Let Me In, the new version of Let the Right One In, directed by Matt Reeves. Word out of festivals so far has been mixed to good, with many saying the film stands on its own. Until then we can enjoy some pretty good marketing designs for the film, like the new UK quad poster pictured in part above.
I’m not certain if this poster was designed by All City Media, the company that did the lovely original quad for Let the Right One In. But this new design sure bears a striking resemblance to the Tyler Stout redesigned poster for Let the Right One In, which was recently part of AllCity’s gallery show AllCity Redrawn. Hm.
Either way, it’s about the nicest ‘floating heads’ poster you’re likely to see this weekend. See the full image after the break. Read More »

We don’t post a lot of clips these days. Mostly because I (and Peter, I believe) try to avoid watching them, so as not to spoil films any more than necessary before we see them. So why am I posting this clip from Let Me In? Because it’s part of what we were shown at Comic Con this year, and was very helpful in convincing me that this is a movie to be taken seriously. Hopefully some of you might feel the same.
In addition, there’s a really nice new French poster for the film, which you can see after the break. Read More »

Briefly: Let Me In, the Matt Reeves-directed remake/alternate take on Let the Right One In, will be the opening night film at this year’s Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX. The film will premiere at a red carpet event on Thursday, Sept 23 at the Paramount Theatre in Austin. The film stars Chloe Moretz (Kick Ass), Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road), Elias Koteas (Shutter Island) and Richard Jenkins (The Visitor), at least some of whom will be in attendance, along with Matt Reeves.
“We are truly honored that Fantastic Fest has chosen to open their festival with the U.S. premiere of Let Me In. It is incredibly exciting to be able to present the film to an audience who I know are just as passionate about John Ajvide Linqvist’s story as I am,” said director Matt Reeves.
Let Me In joins other Fantastic Fest programming like Ip Man 2, Outrage, Rubber, The Violent Kind and more. The film will first appear at the Toronto Film Fesival; it opens in the US on October 1. After the break, see a new image courtesy of the TIFF website. Read More »

Comic-Con 2010 is over, and I’m still reeling from the experience. Just like last year, the entire event was a whirlwind with insane crowds, a healthy dose of line waiting, and some unexpected bits of awesome. By the time it was over, I was more than ready to go home. But I know for a fact that in a week or two I’ll be screaming “We have to go back!” — while disheveled and inexplicably bearded.
At some point this week, the entire /Film crew will record their overall thoughts of the event on a special episode of the /Filmcast. But for now, here are my personal picks for the best and worst of Comic-Con 2010. (Fair warning: I didn’t include some major panels [see: Marvel stuff] that failed to get me excited. If you liked those panels, and others I didn’t mention let us know in the comments.)

Overture Films has released a new movie trailer for Matt Reeves‘ big screen adaptation Let Me In, a remake of the critically acclaimed 2008 Swedish film Let The Right On In. You can read about the Comic-Con panel, where this new trailer premiered, in our previous coverage. I was extremely impressed with the footage they screened in Hall H. And if the scenes screened are any indication, this film might have award potential. Watch the full length movie trailer now, embedded after the jump.
