This slipped through the cracks yesterday, but since many of us were wondering why the hell David Tennant hadn't appeared in any of the trailers and little of the promotional material for the FRIGHT NIGHT remake to date, I thought you'd like to take a look at this all the same.
This new promo for the film aired during the MTV Movie Awards and, at long last, we get a glimpse of Mr. Tennant as Peter Vincent - the role brilliantly originated by Roddy McDowall in Tom Holland's 1985 original.
I have a strong (and wholly unsubstantiated) hunch that Peter Vincent's role may be disappointingly small in this picture...that The Powers That Be underestimated Mr. Tennant's Geek draw...that we may not see as much of him in the film as many of us would like...and that his casting may emerge as a tremendous missed opportunity. This is just a hunch and I hope I'm wrong, so don't take what I'm saying to the bank just yet.
Here's the new promo...
Thanks to Matthew and Manflayer for calling this to our attention.
