Patrons of the many casinos and shows in Las Vegas may mistake this banner spotted there for a new magician named Peter Vincent, whose new show Fright Night promises to provide him shirtless and in leather pants, which clearly give him the ability to harness energy. Well, they wouldn't be totally wrong. Vincent is actually actor David Tennant (Doctor Who) WHO stars as a veteran vampire hunter in the remake of the 1985 cult horror-comedy hit.

The remake boats quite the impressive cast with the likes of Colin Farrell, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Anton Yelchin, Toni Collette, Dave Franco, and Imogen Poots. It comes from LARS AND THE REAL GIRL director Craig Gillespie.

Check out the first look at Tennant's character after the break.

Odd that this would be the way DreamWorks would debut what is really the first look at anything from the film. Theater banners usually come way later in the game. No production still? No title art? Guess that is still to come, as the film is due out October 7 of next year.

    i’m pretty sure this banner is part of the film, not PR for the film itself (though it’s definitely that too now that it’s all over the net). Tennant’s character in the film is also playing a role –the gothed-up magician in the poster–and this is advertising the character’s stage show.

    Tennant looks like the gay lovechild of Criss Angel and Jack Sparrow.

    Epic FAIL.

    Ridiculous. This will be awful like every remake so far. They just had to butcher this amazing classic. Indeed this looks like a gay lovechild of Sparrow and Criss angel. All the classics will be remade, hell, I see a Matrix remake in no time. Why can’t they just come up with new ideas? and have todays sh/itty generation grow up with new memories instead of something that was already done? This [email protected] and the rest of the cast will never replace the original.
