Four international character banners for Craig Gillespie’s Fright Night remake have gone online. The film stars Anton Yelchin as a suburban teenager who must combat his sinister new neighbor (Colin Farrell) because said neighbor is a murderous vampire. The posters feature corny taglines but I’ve heard good things about Marti Noxon’s script and I like the cast (which also includes David Tennant, Imogen Poots, Christopher Mintze-Plasse, and Toni Collette) so I don’t really mind if the advertising is unimpressive.
Hit the jump to check out the posters. Fright Night opens in 3D on August 19th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Fright Night:
Senior Charlie 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 Charlie’s mom (Toni Collette), seems to notice! After witnessing some very unusual activity, Charlie comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on his neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone that he’s telling the truth, Charlie has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself in this Craig Gillespie-helmed revamp of the comedy-horror classic.
