CinemaCon Exclusive: Gillespie & Farrell on Fright Night


Tuesday at CinemaCon brought the second studio presentation, this one from DreamWorks, and the one movie’s 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.

Just to give you some background in case you haven’t seen the original movie, it stars Anton Yelchin as Charlie Brewster, a young man in the suburbs, who suspects his neighbor Jerry Dandridge, played by Colin Farrell, to be a vampire.

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.
