There’s zero empirical evidence to back up the theory, but here at Limited Paper we tend to think that there aren’t a lot of hard-core collectors out there with big Valentine’s Day plans.  Quite frankly, when the vast majority of your spending money is being pushed towards one fancifully-colored 24x36” sheet of paper after another, there isn’t much budget left for schmoozing the ladies (or the gents, if that’s your thing).  Sure, you could’ve bought her that diamond-encrusted toaster she’s always wanted, but there’s something like 400 prints dropping this week:  one has to prioritize.

But what if you have a significant other…and they’re also into poster collecting?  Well, good news, buddy:  Bottleneck Gallery’s Get a Room (opening in NYC this Friday) is filled with a ton of romantic, movie-themed posters your guy or gal will be jazzed to have hanging on their wall, and we’ve got preview pics for you (including new work from Craig Drake, Godmachine, and Cuyler Smith) after the jump.

So, let’s have some fun. If you have seen the original Swedish vampire film Let The Right One In by Tomas Alfredson, read the original novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist, and saw Matt Reeves’ Let Me In this week, this is the place for you. I figured one thing that is missing from reviews (for good reason) is a thorough explanation of the differences between some of the different stories, so why don’t we get some discussion going? I will be throwing in my two cents in the comments as well, so, this is your final warning if you don’t want to be spoiled about the two films and the novel that inspired them both. After the jump I will break down some key difference between all three, and I am counting on you to take this and run with it.

LET THE RIGHT ONE IN Author Praises Matt Reeves’ LET ME IN As ‘Excellent’

If you haven’t heard by now, there was an uproar when it was announced that Tomas Alfredson’s incredible Let The Right One In would be remade for an American audience the same year it was released. Based on the acclaimed Swedish novel of the same name by John Ajvide Lindqvist, Alfredson’s film was a critical darling but it failed to make much money. Now that Matt Reeves’ remake Let Me In has been released (read my review here) to critical praise of its own, Lindqvist has written a note to Reeves in praise of the film. Hit the jump for an excerpt of the clip and a preview of what is to come.

One of fall’s most anticipated films had an auspicious start, befitting its legacy as “The Facebook Movie.” The Social Network had no trouble placing first with an estimated $23 million. Meanwhile, horror releases Let Me In and Case 39 continued to inspire little fear and even less money after their anemic Friday debuts.

Title Weekend Total
1 The Social Network $23,000,000 $23
2 Legends of the Guardians $10,500,000 $29.7
3 Wall Street 2 $10,200,000 $35.9
4 The Town $9,800,000 $64.1
5 Easy A $7,000,000 $42.4
6 You Again $5,600,000 $16.4
7 Let Me In $5,200,000 $5.2

Friday Box Office – THE SOCIAL NETWORK Easy Number One with $8 Million; LET ME IN Locked Out of Top Five

by     Posted 4 years, 15 days ago

the_social_network_math_slice

David Fincher’s The Social Network seemed like a stretch when Sony announced it; after all, how much drama could be wrung out of Mark Zuckerberg writing code? Turns out quite a bit. With the inimitable Aaron Sorkin handling the script, The Social Network has been garnering great reviews and today it finds itself as Friday’s number one film by quite a comfortable margin. With $8 million estimated from 2,771 locations, SN is on track to take in $23 million this weekend… right in line with studio expectations. But if you are looking below for signs of the week’s other two major ‘new’ releases, don’t bother. Both Let Me In, the adaptation of the fan-favorite Swedish vampire book/film Let the Right One In, and Case 39, the three year-old horror film starring Renee Zellweger and Bradley Cooper, failed to break Friday’s top five. For Paramount’s 39 a stop at number eight is no surprise; but Let Me In had higher aspirations than the paltry $1.9 million that currently puts it at number six. Weekend projections aren’t looking much better at this point, but I’ll have full details when you check back tomorrow.

Title Friday Total
1 The Social Network $8,000,000 $8
2 Wall Street 2 $3,300,000 $29
3 The Town $3,100,000 $57.4
4 Legends of the Guardians $2,600,000 $21.7
5 Easy A $2,200,000 $37.6

Let me start off by saying congratulations to director Matt Reeves.  Why am I saying congrats?  Because Reeves has done the impossible and made the remake of director Tomas Alfredson’s Let the Right One In something everyone can be proud of.

When it was first announced the Alfredson’s film was being remade, cyberspace exploded with venom.  But I’ve spoken to a number of leading online journalists and the consensus is universal: Let Me In is a special movie – just like the original.

I have a lot more to say after the jump – including eight clips from the movie.  What are you waiting for:

Kodi Smit-McPhee and Director Matt Reeves Interview LET ME IN

by     Posted 4 years, 74 days ago

Let the Right One In, based on the best-selling Swedish novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist, received so much critical acclaim that it became a surprise feature film success that drew enough attention to spawn an American remake. With Cloverfield director Matt Reeves at the helm, Let Me In transports the story to New Mexico, but still tells the story of a 12-year-old boy who is viciously bullied by his classmates and neglected by his divorcing parents. He has no friends until he meets his new neighbor, an eerie young girl, who only comes out at night and who is hiding a frightening secret.

Following their panel at Comic-Con, director Matt Reeves and actor Kodi Smit-McPhee, who stars as Owen, spoke at a roundtable about preparing for this version of the story. Check out what they had to say after the jump:

Director Matt Reeves Exclusive Video Interview LET ME IN; Plus Updates on the CLOVERFIELD Sequel and THE INVISIBLE WOMAN

by     Posted 4 years, 77 days ago

At this year’s Comic-Con, I was able to sit down with writer-director Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) for Let Me In.  Based on the best-selling Swedish novel Lat den Ratte Komma In (Let the Right One In) by John Ajvide Lindqvist, and the highly-acclaimed film of the same name by Tomas Alfredson, Reeves film has been the subject of a lot of online bashing since before filming began.  However, over the past few weeks, as footage and images have been released, you can see the tide turning online, with many now excited to see Reeves take on the material.  Also, it didn’t hurt that the panel for Let Me In at Comic-Con was loaded with some great footage.

Anyway, before the panel, I managed to get some time with Reeves.  We talked about the online buzz for his movie and how things have been changing, how much of the original movie is in his version, has he already deleted sequences for the DVD/Blu-ray, what has the test screening process been like, how did he get Michael Giacchino to do the score, what is it like for him to be at Comic-Con and what does he collect/geek out over, and a lot more.  If you’re interested Let Me In and why Reeves wanted to do a remake, you’ll love the interview.

Finally, for all you Cloverfield fans, I asked if there’s been any movement on a sequel/prequel (the answer is no), and Reeves mentioned he’d still like to get back to The Invisible Woman someday.  It’s all after the jump:

Matt Reeves on LET ME IN and Its Inevitable Comparison to TWILIGHT

by     Posted 4 years, 271 days ago

Director Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) wasn’t kidding when he told MTV today that his “Americanization” of Let the Right One In has “a real bull’s-eye on it.”  The heartwarming Swedish horror gathered quite the cult following after its 2008 release. However, Reeves wanted to reassure fans of the original that his adaptation will stay true to the first film and the book on which it’s based — and to remind people that thisisn’t Twilight or True Blood.

Let Me In moves John Ajvide Lindqvist’s story from semi-urban Sweden to small town New Mexico, telling the tale of a boy (The Road‘s Kodi Smit-McPhee) who befriends his neighborhood vampire (Kick-Ass‘ Chloe Moretz).  The film recently secured its October 1, 2010 release date. See what Reeves had to say for himself after the break.

In 2008 Let the Right One In, a Swedish film about a boy’s friendship with a young girl vampire, was released to critical acclaim and resonated internationally on a greater level than any other Swedish film of the decade.  Likely inspired by the current popularity of vampire-based media such as Twilight and True Blood, an American remake similarly titled Let Me In was commissioned by Overture Films.  The film now has an official release date of October 1, 2010.  Let Me In is directed by Cloverfield‘s Matt Reeves, and stars Kodi Smit-McPhee, Chloe Moretz, and Richard Jenkins.  For a look at the film’s potential and a full plot synopsis, hit the jump.

Elias Koteas, Cara Buono, and Sasha Barrese Join Remake LET ME IN; Principal Photography Begins

Principal Photography began today on Matt Reeves’ “Let Me In”, the remake of Tomas Alfredson’s acclaimed film, “Let the Right One In” which was an adaptation of the John Ajvide Lindqvist’s novel of the same name.  It’s difficult to find a fan of Alfredson’s film who is excited for this remake since the Swedish landscape is such an integral part of the film’s tone and overarching themes.  Couple that with the tendency of American films to avoid ambiguity and relationships which may make audiences uncomfortable and you can see why the reception of its production is (appropriately) chilly.

But actors Elias Koteas (“Zodiac”), Cara Buono (“The Sopranos”), and Sasha Barrese (“The Hangover”) are giving the film a chance and joining stars Kodi-Smit McPhee (“The Road”), Chloe Moretz (“Kick-Ass”) and Richard Jenkins (“The Visitor”).  Hit the jump for more details.
