MTV has the exclusive on the new poster for Matt Reeves’ upcoming remake of Let The Right One In, Let Me In, from Comic Con. The remake stars Kodi Smit-McPhee, Chloe Moretz , Richard Jenkins, Sasha Barrese, Dylan Minnette, Carla Buono and Elias Koteas. The official synopsis (from Collider):
An alienated 12-year-old boy befriends a mysterious
young newcomer in his small New Mexico town, and discovers an
unconventional path to adulthood in Let Me In, a haunting and
provocative thriller written and directed by filmmaker Matt Reeves
Twelve-year old Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee) is viciously bullied by his
classmates and neglected by his divorcing parents. Achingly lonely,
Owen spends his days plotting revenge on his middle school tormentors
and his evenings spying on the other inhabitants of his apartment
complex. His only friend is his new neighbor Abby (Chloe Moretz), an
eerily self-possessed young girl who lives next door with her silent
father (Oscar®nominee Richard Jenkins). A frail, troubled child about
Owens’s age, Abby emerges from her heavily curtained apartment only at
night and always barefoot, seemingly immune to the bitter winter
elements. Recognizing a fellow outcast, Owen opens up to her and before
long, the two have formed a unique bond.
When a string of grisly murders puts the town on high alert, Abby’s
father disappears, and the terrified girl is left to fend for herself.
Still, she repeatedly rebuffs Owen’s efforts to help her and her
increasingly bizarre behavior leads the imaginative Owen to suspect
she’s hiding an unthinkable secret.
The gifted cast of Let Me In takes audiences straight to
the troubled heart of adolescent longing and loneliness in an
astonishing coming-of-age story 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.
