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.

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 »

International Movie Trailer: Let Me In


Ever since Matt Reeves’ Let Me In (a remake of Let the Right One In) was first announced, I’ve been simultaneously excited and fearful about the anticipated results. My hope was that an American remake could help bring attention to Tomas Alfredson’s Swedish original. But that film was so understated and sublime, I didn’t know if Reeves would trample all over it.

Now the international trailer for has hit the web and it looks…surprisingly faithful? Hit the jump to check it out and leave your thoughts in the comments.

Let Me In Comparison

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 »

First Look: Chloe Moretz in Let Me In


News of a remake of Swedish vampire film Let the Right One In generated a lot of heat, and no small amount of anger. (The remake was announced before the original had been properly released in the US.) But some of the bile dissolved when people got a chance to see Let Me In star Chloe Moretz in Kick-Ass. Hey, this kid’s pretty good! Maybe this remake won’t be so bad after all. So will this first look at Moretz as Abby, the ‘not really a child’ at the center of the film, sway opinions yet again?
