Last week I had the opportunity to sit down and discuss Let Me In with writer/director Matt Reeves and the star of the film, Kodi Smit-McPhee, during Fantastic Fest. I had a notepad full of questions to ask, as I loved the original Swedish film, had finished reading the book a week prior, and screened the remake the day before, but I was given a small window to talk to them so I tried to make my questions count. Join me after the break as we discuss the plot points he wanted to keep from the original film, the decision behind the use of CGI and the vampire aesthetic, and how long Kodi can really hold his breath.
If you haven’t already, check out my review of Let Me In from Fantastic Fest here and look for my interview with Dylan Minnette and Elias Koteas in the coming days. For now, enjoy the interview and look for Let Me In tomorrow.
Disney’s ‘Tomorrowland’ held in first place for the three-day weekend with an estimated $32.1 million. ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ came in second with $30.3 million. ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ was down 47% in third while the ‘Poltergeist’ reboot opened as expected, in fourth place.
