Looking at the below posters for Matt Reeves’ unnecessary remake of the superb Swedish vampire drama Let the Right One In, I can’t help but wonder…why are you doing this again?
The posters, courtesy of Slashfilm, are cool as hell, I’ll give you that. But they also look like they could, quite literally, be posters for the original version of the film.
From what we’ve gathered so far, it looks like Reeves is going to stay surprisingly faithful to the original movie and novel, keeping the kids twelve-years-old and maintaining the bleak, snow-covered setting.
Also interesting about these posters is the prominent acknowledgement of the original film, with the words “Based on the Award Winning Original Let the Right One In” plastered front and center. I would think they would be trying to make audiences forget the original or would choose to proclaim that this is based on the original novel, not the film.
Anyway, here are some cool posters for a movie that I’m sure will be both well-done and completely unnecessary. Click to make big.
