About the film:
Senior Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) finally has it all - he's running with the popular crowd and dating the hottest girl in high school. In fact, he's so cool he's even dissing his best friend Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). But trouble arrives when an intriguing stranger Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there's something not quite right - yet no one, including Charley's mom (Toni Collette), seems to notice! After witnessing some very unusual activity, Charley comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on his neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone that he's telling the truth, Charley has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy-horror classic.
Rated R for bloody horror violence, and language including some sexual references.

Although I think that movies like this one should not have been re-made, and that directors should just make new movies especially vampire ones instead of re-doing films that have already been made and were brilliant.

I must say after watching this trailer I am looking forward to seeing this movie, for one reason only - Colin Farrell is gorgeous!!!!!!!!! And he seriously knows how to act!!!! xxxxxxxx
