New “Fright Night” Trailer Featuring David Tennant

The first trailer of Fright Night that came out a few weeks ago looked pretty cool, with Anton Yelchin squaring off against blood-sucking Colin Farrell, but aside from a quick shot, it totally left out David Tennant playing Peter Vincent (a character played by Roddy McDowell in the original). Well this new trailer has a lot of Tennant and I have to say, he looks super badass.

AND it’s rated R. I’m there, folks.

    Omfg!!!! I have to watch this. Only and only because David Tennant is in it. He is a brilliant actor and he should be recognized even more. Fright Night just might do the job. Lol, oh how I would love myself some DT!!!

  2. Abe says:

    The only thing I’m worried about is if Tennant dies early in the film..because the early trailers have Colin Farrell after them in the middle of the road(no tennant), Charlie going into the vampire house alone in the daylight(no tennant)…hoping it follows the original as far as the size of Peter Vincents Character.

  3. alliecat says:

    love David! can’t wait!!!
    its funny how he plays such a gentle, noble character who would never even touch a gun to that play for Romeo and Juliet thing and now a character that says “Let’s kill something” lol! loving it! Totally badass

  4. QueenDeadite says:

    I was heartbroken when I saw Farrell was cast as Dandridge, I’ve had a crush on Chris Sarandon since I was 5, but it doesn’t look so bad. I’m really looking forward to quality screen time with David he is sexy when he is being nerdy, I don’t know how to take him as a uber bad boy.

  5. len says:

    so does this mean you’ll finally have Tennant on your podcast soon, chris? hmmm??

  6. (((d(–__–)b))) This Trailer is definitely better than the first one.

    I loved the Original Fright Night movies, so I can’t wait to see this one.

  7. Drew says:

    Yet another movie where I’ll be swooning over Anton Yelchin while everyone else is busy lusting after the leads.

  8. micah says:

    just no way to descibe how awesome this make tennant look.

  9. Joshua says:

    Jesus, does Tennant go completely topless in the whole film? Admit it, Chris, you want him to.

  10. "Jennifer" says:

    @Art BWAHAHAHA. I was thinking the same thing!

  11. Art says:

    I wonder how many people are hiding their Tennant man-crush behind girls names.


  12. Jackfan12 says:

    Still dont like Colin Farrell but that doesnt matter because that’s not why I am ( and I am guessing the rest of you nerdist too) going to watch it. *Drool*

  13. Sara says:

    I must say that I’m relieved that the wig he wears is meant to be a wig in the film and not his character’s actual hair (I’ve only seen stills of him in the Vegas get-up).

    “Let’s kill something.” Very bad-ass, indeed.

  14. Julian says:

    I really hope this attracts a lot of Twilight fans looking for vampire romance… I’d just love to see their reaction to vamps that are proper evil and not sparkly emo unicorns.

  15. allison says:

    Pretty much every time David Tennant takes on a role, it’s something so distinct from what he’s done before—just take a look at his last few roles since giving up the TARDIS, or even what he’d done just before and during his tenure as the Doctor. Just a great deal of talent wrapped up in one actor. Luckily, the film actually looks watchable beyond him! Also love Anton Yelchin and Colin Farrell looks intriguing in this. Can’t wait for the film.

  16. Jessica says:

    Wouldn’t give this movie a second look normally, and wasn’t even all that excited about it knowing that DT was in it…until I saw the shots of him in the leather pants without the super-goth makeup.

    August cannot come fast enough… 😉

    Actually, I’m genuinely intrigued to see him in this role — I’ve seen pretty much everything else he’s ever done, but this appears to be quite different. A little bit Harry Potter, a little bit Doctor Who, but also very distinct from either. Of course he’ll be fantastic because he’s just a really solid actor with excellent instincts and a wide range, but I’m really curious to see what it will be like…

  17. Cheri says:

    YES! I was sad the first trailer had no Tennant, but this second one toootally makes up for it! and yay for looking like a GOOD remake!

  18. Beth says:

    Reasons I am excited about this film: a) David Tennant b) David Tennant with no shirt on and c) David Tennant

  19. Emma says:

    David Tennant is such a brilliant actor with an amazing range. I’m hoping for the day when he’s in a lot more things stateside.

  20. Laura says:

    David Tennant in black leather pants. Yes, please.

  21. Saxyroro says:

    Wow that looks good. I never knew it was vampire movies as a kid. Dave Tennant and Colin Farrell as a vampire, count me in!

  22. Martha Jones says:

    David Tennant is SEX. That is all.

  23. Brittany says:

    That looks amazing! except for the twilight reference..why does everything involving vampires have to include twilight? ughh But aside from that holy crap David Tennant looks so badass, can’t wait!

  24. Lisa G says:

    I was mortified to hear that Hollywood was remaking “Fright Night,” because the original is perfect……. until I saw who the director and actors were. Now I CAN.NOT.WAIT!!! Someone who saw a sneak preview said that DT was hilarious in it.

  25. solovaye says:

    I’m definitely going 2c this with a few DT fans. IF ur interested in seeing DT on stage/film/DVD help RT etc DVD petition #MAAN #muchado #davidtennant TY so much!
    NEED 2K more sigs!

  26. Patrick says:

    As scary as the Box art!!!

  27. Dreama says:

    I am definitely not a horror film person, however I will watch this just to see David Tennant! Wait he doesn’t die does he?

  28. Rodb_23 says:

    Can’t wait to see this movie. David Tennant is soo awesome.

  29. Justin says:

    Yeah, I’m in, this looks fucking awesome, & we’re do a GOOD vampire movie after all the crap that has come out the last couple years

  30. Am I the only one who got a little bit of a gay vibe for a little while when Anton Yelchin met Colin Farrell?

  31. Robin Burks says:

    I was so worried when I saw the first trailer – I thought they were cutting Tennant out of the film because there’s so little of him in it. Fortunately, though, this trailer makes him out to be the star. There are also rumors that the sequel is going to be all about him and his version of Peter Vincent.

    As a huge fan of the original film, I’m okay with that.

  32. Scott says:

    this looks interesting i’ve never seen the original, but come on people from scrubs ( the med school year ) superbad , kickass, and dr. who . got too be worth a rent at least
