There's blood on the ice in new Let Me In poster

07.06.2010by:

Yes, it might the most unnecessary remake this side of Spider-Man, but Matt Reeves LET ME IN actually looks well, good, at least judging by the first teaser trailer from last week.

But of course, by “good” I mean exactly like LET THE RIGHT ONE IN, which by default means it must be somewhat decent. I was surprised to see the familiar snowscape, as I remember reading that the locale of the film had been moved to the desert of New Mexico some time ago.

Below (via Empire) we have the UK poster for the film, featuring some of the dreary ice we know and love from the original film which has made its way into this one. The blood effects are cool, but the MATT REEVES and CLOVERFIELD text is a bit too prominent for my taste.

Check it out below, and click to see it bigger over at the Pimpin’ Poster Palace.

Why is every one surprised that New Mexico gets lots of snow? It is right next to Colorado after all! My brother plays one of the firemen pulling the body from the lake and he says Koteas is one cool cat!

ya know...

when all these folks say they'll be getting nothing new in the remake i say fuck yeah, you'll be getting english motherfuckers. give it a break, i was a bit annoyed when they remade open your eyes/vanilla sky, rec/quarantine and then this, but its fucking hollywood, what do you expect? at least it looks like they didn't dumb it down or fuck it up. i'll go see it, just because it looks well cast and played.

I have no desire to see this

I enjoyed the original and after seeing this new one's trailer I didn't get the feeling that I'd be getting anything new out of this one.

I got the feeling that this will be much more of a shot-for-shot remake than they were saying. Which by default makes it even more unnecessary. Matt Reeves can thank the lord for Chloë Moretz as she is the only reason IŽll watch this right now.

Well, Speaking as someone who hasnt seen the original. I enjoyed what I saw in the trailer, I mean I want to see it before this one is out. But the poster does look good though.

Decent poster.

Would be a pretty great teaser poster, if it weren't for the ugly ass "Matt Reeves" and "Cloverfield" above the title.

The only reason why people think it doesn't look bad is because of a convenient trailer that plays to the mainstream sensibilities and styles and dodges the arthouse allure that was the original. It openly admits it's dumbed down the material, and not surprisingly, people don't seem to mind at all. Good for them, but I'll stick with the original. Let them eat cotton candy, I'll be sticking to my gourmet meal that is "Let the Right One In."

You're still complaining? I don't think I've ever read a supportive comment from you on this site. Ever.

Eh, I suppose it doesn't look that bad. I don't remember the poster for Let The Right One In but I suppose that this one looks alright. The only thing I don't like is the "director of Cloverfield" but I guess its just to lure in audiences.

And on the tidbit, its really hard to say... You have Psycho by Van Sant that sucked incredibly and then you have The Departed by Scorsese that owns. Tough to say
