Trailer: "Let the Right One In" Remake

Posted: July 1st, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Trailer: "Let the Right One In" RemakeSubmit Comment
The trailer for the upcoming "Let the Right One In" remake, called "Let Me In" and starring Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road) and Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass), has been released. Check it out below. And if you're wondering what the Morse code at the end of the trailer spells out, it's "help me."

Plot: Twelve-year old Owen (Smit-McPhee) 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 (Moretz), an eerily self-possessed young girl who lives next door with her silent father (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.

When a string of grisly murders puts the town on high alert, Abby's father disappears, and the terrified girl is left to fend for herself. Still, she repeatedly rebuffs Owen's efforts to help her and her increasingly bizarre behavior leads the imaginative Owen to suspect she's hiding an unthinkable secret.

"Let Me In" is directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) and is scheduled to hit theaters on October 1st.

BTW Chloe is gonna be a great actress.. her career choices are already better than most older than her. I think this will be pretty good, not great, but we'll see.

This maybe one of the better Horror movies I've seen in a while. Chloe is gonna be a great actress and I think she'll make this movie. Unless she goes down the Lohan route later in life.

Looks exactly the same as the original, only without all the unique camera work. And subtitles of course.

Looks exactly like I imagined it would. I'll definitely give it a chance. I just hope they don't over-Americanize it.

It looks good, definitely, but I'm talking only about the looks. Both child actors are great but... it's one of the most useless remakes ever. That's way I'm so against it.

I agree with most of the above; much better looking than anticipated and about Chloe's potential as an actress. The original film will be hard to top but I am curious as to whether or not this director will adapt more closely to the book than Swedish film did. That would be crazy cool. Also, I definitely can't wait for the swimming pool scene.

@Sc_kg: Making an idea for a movie is really easy, the hard part is coming up with a good idea. I don't understand your point on "european european moviemakers think it's all about kick-ass set up situation. They don't care about main character. There's no motivation, no growing up." That is half right about Guy Ritchie's movies, but they all care about the characters (it's all about characters really) and they have all motivations for their actions. But that's one director.

Some directors have to much control (looking at you Lars von Trier), but as I said, it's just a part of that big auteur-thingy. But european doesn't have a studio to please, they are made with a much lesser budget and will have a greater chance on making its budget back, therefore easing up on the pressure on the directors.

I don't understand your analogy with Little Miss Sunshine either. When you write it in european, you just say the very basic idea, the one when you first come up with an movie. All those ideas will be evolved before they become films. Or do you really think all european movies can be summed up like that? And you are not helping your point either when give describe it in US, because there you have gotten the plot wrong. Which begs the question: Did you understand the movie?

And of course the movies that compete in "best screenplay"-category will be well written. It's the reason they got nominated. But that's only five films per year, which it's not much taking consideration how much US cram out.

And I don't see how education will have anything to do with appreciate American Beauty. Even a well educated person can have poor taste and not like American Beauty. Education doesn't give you better taste, it does, however, give you an aura of being a pretentious douchebag (note: I' not refering directly to you).

....i am excited for this. I agree it is kind of unneeded, but you know for a remake this looks good.

Look at all the remakes and reboots that come out lately....most are sh*t on a turd sandwich.

If I have to see remakes like hollywood wants us to (f*ck you Hollywood and your herpes infected vagina) let me get as many spot on and decent ones as possible and this one looks like one of them.

"something wicked lives"....sigh. The "horror" of the original was incidental, the story itself was about two outsiders finding one another. I guess that's not a good enough storyline for 3 sensationalism addicted, min attention span MTV retards in this country.

f*ckin useless. ANd as if the disgrace wasn't big enough, they asked "The director of Cloverfield" to make this piece of sh*t.

This is just a copy of the original for all I can tell. Even the trailer is almost exactly the same. Same shots, same weird looking kids, same tree climbing vampire. Even with all the similarities/plagarising, I guarantee it wont have the shot of the kiddie vampire twat like the original and it wont have the same love story appeal. I thought the relationship built between the kids in the first was amazingly mysterious and beautiful. You never knew if she genuinely liked/loved Owen or was just setting him up to be her next guardian. I never read the book so the ambiguity was a HUGE bonus for me and made the film very special imo. An American studio may be able to duplicate the look of the film perfectly (like they did with The Grudge) but I have serious doubts that they can duplicate its heart.

I'll see this, but it will feel like I'm cheating on the original when I do. I guarantee its not better.

@sacdaddy. If I have one thing against the orginal movie over the book was that it did give me that feeling that she set him up to be the next gaurdian....however I do believe that she did love him.

The book was pretty obvious in the love they had for one another.
Cd_Smith0 writes:

I get the impression with this remake they will focus more on a love relationship than they did in the original.

I read the book - very twisted. I don't see them doing the old man as a pedophile and in the book Eli or whatever turns out to be a f*cking boy (def. y I think the old man was hanging with him)! I didn't understand if they went away together in the end as lovers or friends basically the book went around in a circle the old man was probably a young boy @ one point too when he met the chick/boy and this that and a third. We didn't need a remake the original is fine the way it is but f*ck it the original is still there and always will be this is like a new spin

I do agree, to some extent, that this was a useless remake. The original was amazing the way it was. However, I do know some people that would be unwilling to watch this great movie simply due to the subtitles. The American remake will allow those people to see it, and give more exposure to the original.

The director is in a tough spot. With remakes, the main complaint is that the remake isn't close enough to the original. In this case it looks like the director listened to those complaints and followed the source material as close as possible. This of course is bringing critisism as well. It's a catch 22.

That said, I have hopes for this one, but the original will always be better.

Ok I'll put my neck out there on this one and go all in early. I've read the book, loved it, saw the original, loved it. And this trailer looks very good and very promising.
I know Americanizing foreign films has come up short in the past but I think there's great potential in the two young stars to make this film very good.
Chloe Moretz is a star with the sky as her limit. She will deliver a chilling (damn puns again) performance as the distant and twisted Abby.
I would have loved to have Max Records from Where The Wild Things Are as Owne in this but after seeing The Road, Kodi Smit-McPhee looks to be able to bring the loneliness and desperate life Owen has very well.
The appeal of the original film was its foreign nature where a lot of the ideals in the film are generally more acceptable overseas.
@SAC you bring up a great point about the ambiguity of her intentions rather if she genuinely cares or is setting Owen up as her next caretaker. I believe it is both. She truely cares about her caretakers at some point but also understands she needs them just as much as she cares for them. Knowing how she will more than likely outlive them she knows she could never fully love them.
Personally (pretty obvious) I can't wait for this to come out. I know it won't break any box office records I just hope it gets a good showing and a lot of positive buzz.

In the book the old man was grown up when he met eli. Eli did not care for the old man or anyone else cause of the sexual desire from the old man. For Eli, Oscar represented the loneliness she/he felt.

I do believe that Eli loved oscar very much, ecspecially in the book. I felt that the movie messed up a little on making that unclear.

This movie did not NEED to be remade. The original movie is awesome, how come if its not American it need to be remade?! God damn it, just read the subtitles.

It isn't exactly a useless remake. They're cashing in on the majority of people who don't like watching foreign films.

Will it ever top the original? No. But it might just let people go and experience it, read the book and see just how much better it was.

I still think it looks pretty good though. Seeing "Hammer" gives me a bit of faith in a weird way. They should never have changed the title though.
