Article courtesy ShockTillYouDrop: Tuesday at CinemaCon brought the second studio presentation, this one from DreamWorks, and the one movie ShockTillYouDrop.com readers will want to know about is the Craig (Lars and the Real Girl) Gillespie-directed 3D remake of the 1985 cult classic Fright Night. Instead of showing a behind-the-scenes sizzle reel like the movies before them, Gillespie showed an 8-minute chunk of the movie that was filmed and screened entirely in 3D. It opens with Charlie Brewster’s mother Jane, played by Toni Collette, walking into his room while he’s whittling a piece of wood into a stake, and when they go downstairs, Charlie’s girlfriend Amy, played by Imogen Poots, is there wondering why he’s been acting so strangely. Before they get too far into the conversation, Farrell’s Jerry knocks at the door telling Charlie’s mother that Charlie has been harassing him and that he wants to come in to talk about it rather than going to the authorities. Charlie begs his mother not to give him permission to come into the house so she refuses and he walks off but then returns menacingly with a shovel and walks out of view. The full article, including an interview with director Craig Gillespie and Colin Farrell, can be read here.
