Yesterday at the Comic-Con panel for Let Me In we saw a solid looking trailer for the remake of the swedish film Let the Right One In. I've been stubbornly against this movie since I first found out it was getting remade because I was such a huge fan of the original. But I have to admit this new trailer, and the footage that we saw during the panel for the film actually looks really good, it was shot incredibly well, and it's hard to deny that this movie could actually end up being a decent remake, but I don't think it will be better than the original. I seriously hate to say that, but when you see the trailer below you'll know what I mean.
The movie which was directed by Cloverfield director Matt Reeves will open up on October 1st. Check out the trailer for the movie below and let us know what you think!
Let Me In tells a terrifying tale about an alienated 12-year old boy named Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee) who is viciously bullied by his classmates and neglected by his divorcing parents. Achingly lonely, Owen spends his days plotting revenge on his middle school tormentors and his evenings spying on the other inhabitants of his apartment complex. His only friend is his new neighbor Abby (Chloe Moretz), an eerily self-possessed young girl who lives next door with her silent father (Oscar nominee Richard Jenkins). A frail, troubled child about Owen's age, Abby emerges from her heavily curtained apartment only at night and always barefoot, seemingly immune to the bitter winter elements. Recognizing a fellow outcast, Owen opens up to her and before long, the two have formed a unique bond.
