First Look at Tennant in Fright Night in 2-D!

Photos have emerged of a promotional banner featuring former Tenth Doctor David Tennant in full Vegas costume as Peter Vincent in Dreamworks Fright Night remake.

David Tennant in Fright NightThe actor is barely recognisable as the Vegas magician who helps Charley Brewster played by Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) battle his neighbour Jerry Dandridge played by Colin Farrell (Minority Report), who happens to be a bloodthirsty vampire who torments the teen.

Despite the promise of a ‘R Rated’ horror film the banner seems to have been designed by the Twilight marketing team, there’s even a hint of (oh dear God no!) Van Helsing in the font.

Which maybe bad news for any fans (I’m talking to both of you) of the 1985 original which saw Chris Sarandon (The Princess Bride) call on the help of the late Roddy McDowell (Planet of the Apes) to help fight the neighbourhood nasty.

Joining Tennant are Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Kick-Ass) as Brewster’s best friend, Evil Ed; Sandra Vergara (Nip/Tuck) as Vincent’s assistant; Imogen Poots (Christopher and His Kind with Matt Smith) as a popular high school senior called Amy and Toni Collette (About a Boy) as Charlie’s mom, who will obviously fall for the Vamp and then disprove of her sons meddling ways.

Fright Night will be released on October 7th 2011 in 3D and glorious 2D.
