I understand that the tease is everything, and that when you’re working on a project getting anything out to fans seems like a good idea. But the only actual story element of the Friday the 13th remake in this first photo is the cop car. The guys standing next to it aren’t actors; they’re producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form.
On his blog hosted at Bloody Disgusting, Fuller does hype the new version of Jason:
In this movie you will see a feral, brutal Jason who is hell-bent on killing in astonishing ways. And tonight our director, Marcus Nispel, constructed a shot of Jason as he is about to strike; that is when I got scared. The shot is iconic in its construction. It’s our ‘Batman’ or ‘Spiderman’ shot and when you see the movie you will know exactly what I am talking about. It is the single shot that tells you everything you need to know about Jason.
Think of all the time Fuller could have saved if Platinum Dunes just let him post a photo. Let’s see Jason, guys — that’s the only way anyone is going to be convinced this might work.
