Let Me In
MPAA Rating: Not yet rated
Release Date: October 1st
Based on: Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist

Twelve-year-old Owen 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, an eerily self-possessed young girl who lives next door with her silent father. A frail, troubled child about Owen'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.

Non-Book Related Movies I'm Dying To Watch:

I love dance movies and I'm interested in seeing if Christina Aguilera can act.

I LOVE anything with Zach Galifianakis and Robert Downey, Jr.!

This animation looks adorable!

I love the whole concept and it seems funny. :)

I loved most of the trailers. Though they're not out yet, I've added majority to my netflix least the ones not already added. I've actually scene a version of "Let Me In." From the trailers it looks like it follows the Swedish version exactly. Not a bad movie.

Kim said...

Oh my goodness... I am kinda disappointed that they did a remake of Let the Right One In... The original Swedish version is AMAZING and probably better than an English language version of it.

And thanks for sharing the trailers!

This is a great post idea. I hadn't seen the trailer for It's Kind of a Funny Story or Burlesque but the both look good. I'm dying to see Easy A!

Lu said...

Thanks so much for these trailers! I loved them all!

Juju at Tales of said...

Oooo I want to see Burlesque too!
Oooo Cam G!

Easy A looks hysterical!

Tangled looks so cute! :)

The Book Vixen said...

I am definitely watching Easy A!!! It looks great!

I may check out Burlesque, if just out of curiosity more than anything else. I don't know about Christina Aguilera's acting....was that McSteamy I saw?!!

Clover said...

I'm so out of the loop when it comes to movies that I didn't even know they had made a film of It's Kind of a Funny Story - I just bought the book recently!

Sheila (Bookjourney) said...

I relaly want to see the Facebook one... that looks interesting

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Legends of the Guardians and Tangled are on my to-see list, but then I really dig animated flicks.

Nikki (Wicked Awesome Books) said...

I hadn't seen a few of these trailers so thanks for sharing! It's Kind of a Funny Story looks really good, as does The Social Network and Let Me In. The movie with Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifinakis looks hilarious. I hadn't seen that trailer before, so I'm happy you included it.

And I cannot wait to see Easy A. I kinda love Emma Stone <3

Smash Attack! said...

If you get the chance, I highly recommend watching the original, Let The Right One In. It was a fantastic take on the vampire genre, IMO.

Lauren said...

Easy A looks so good, and I can't wait to see it. I'm not so sure about Burlesque though. It looks okay, but I'm not sure about how Christina Aguilera will do with her role.

Eleni @ La Femme Readers said...

Smash Attack! - I've already watched the Swedish version and I thought they did a great job with it. I'm curious to see the English version though since dubbed movies usually annoy me because all I do is stare at their moving mouths lol. Thanks for the suggestion though. :)
