Let Me In

This is.. unbelievable. Today I learned that in October there will be an Americanized re-make of "Låt Den Rätta Komma In". (゚Д゚|||)
This is one of my favorite movies - when I bought the movie last year, I didn't know what I was going into. I had heard a bit about it in the news, and being the horror-lover that I am, I had to buy it.
I watched it.
I was stunned.
I couldn't believe what I had seen, what a masterpiece it is.

The whole story, the atmosphere, the acting, everything seemed so right and real.

But there will be a Hollywood version.
Seeing the actors that was chosen for it.. I just don't know. I think they're way too pretty, especially Virginia (Sasha Barrese).
And Chloë Moretz (Hit Girl in Kick-Ass), who's playing Eli looks so much like a child - I know she is and all, but compared to the character she's acting she doesn't have the right look. You know, it's so hard to explain, haha.
Pictures of Lina Leandersson and Chloë Moretz for comparison;

Oh, and by the way, they're renaming Oskar and Eli to Owen and Abby.

Okay, enough rant.
I'm looking forward to watching the re-make, the trailer looks nice,
The director knows what he's doing when making a movie, Cloverfiels was quite good!
And he shows his respect to both the movie and the book - he wouldn't change the ago of the kids, even when he was asked to. He knows how big a role the ages play ( ・∀・)

Thomas Alfredson criticized; "remakes should be made of movies that aren't very good, that gives you the chance to fix whatever has gone wrong. I'm very proud of my movie and I think it's great, but the Americans might have another opinion. The saddest thing for me would be to see this beautiful story made into something mainstream. I don't like to whine, but of course – if you spent years on painting a picture, you'd hate to hear buzz about a copy even before your vernissage!"
And I agree with him.

Btw, there will also be a comic book based on the movie. To this John Ajvide Lindqvist (author of the book) said; "Nobody has asked me about [doing a comic] and I think that the project stinks. I am looking into this matter and hope that they have no right to do this."

  1. Owen and Abby?! Jesus Christ T-T
    Lidt ligesom den amerikanske udgave af Stieg Larsson triologien - HVORFOR?

  2. Er enig med Stelala omkring en amerikanske udgave af Stieg Larsson triologien. \(´<___` ) *snigh*

    Jeg læste omkring at de ville lave en amerikansk udgave af "Låt Den Rätta Komma In" i EMPIRE bladet. Jeg faceplamed jeg total XD

    Men synes at musiken i traileren øddelager total stemingen med "Låt den Rätta komma in" D: Passer ikke rigtig..

    Og synes selv at Cloverfiled var rigtig dårlig.. Men håber at Let me in bliver okay god C:

    Den amerikanske udgave af "A tale of two sisters" failede osse meget xD

  3. AD hvor er deres nye navne nederen. Og Hitgirl er virkelig ikke creppy nok. Hun har for meget baby-fedt i fjæset og for lidt poser under øjnene. Eli skal sgu da have indsunkede øjne lissom D:
