This weeks two genre remakes Conan the Barbarian and Fright Night were bested by new release Spy Kids 4D, and Rise of the Planet of the Apes (in its third week) and The Help (in its second week).  Conan did the better of the two with an estimated weekend haul of $11 million versus Fright Night’s estimate of $8 million.

We can’t really intuit much from this.  Both films had weak buzz and early trailers that didn’t impress.  Sadly, this won’t stall the remake sequel bandwagon.  As, clearly, the rest of the list is full of them.

Yup, that is David Tennant in his role as Peter Vincent in upcoming remake of eighties horror-comedy classic Fright Night.  In the original, Peter Vincent (played by Roddy McDowall)  was a former horror actor who was relegated to hosting a local creature feature broadcast.  But in the remake he’s a successful magician.  The photo above is a banner advertising one of his performances.

Cool look.  But we still dig Roddy McDowall.  And his look.  (Above.)

Although early press on the remake of the eighties classic horror film Fright Night suggested they were going to downplay the comic elements, they’ve turned to a director mainly known for comedy … Craig Gillespie.   Gillespie’s credits include Lars and the Real Girl, Mr. Woodcock and the HBO series “United States of Tara”.

Hmmm …
