Check Out Official Trailer of "Let Me In" 
I love the original Swedish film, "Let the Right One In," it was one of my favorite films of 2008. Now, the official trailer for the American remake is in, and it's quite intriguing. Don't get me wrong, I hate remakes, but this one comes with a great pedigree:

1) Chloe Moretz, who stole scenes in "Kick-Ass" as Hit-Girl, the female vampire who falls in love with...

2) Kodi Smit-McPhee as Owen. Mc-Phee shone in "The Road" as Viggo Mortensen's son

3) Academy-Award nominee, Richard Jenkins (2007's "The Visitor"), plays the vampire's caretaker

4) This is the type of vampire-romance movie that "Twilight" wants to desperately be -- smart, lyrical, poetic, at least the Swedish version was

5) Writer director Matt Reeves knows style and substance he showed in "Cloverfield"

"Let Me In" opens on October 1st in the U.S., and I'll be the first in line! Bite into this trailer:

Meryl Streep to Play Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher? 

Meryl Streep may soon add former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher in a long line of memorable characters in her illustrious career. The actress is in talks to reteam with her "Mamma Mia!" director, Phyllida Lloyd, for "Thatcher" according to The Hollywood Reporter.

No, this one will not be a musical but a biopic of the conservative party leader dubbed the "Iron Lady" and "Attila the Hen."

Jim Broadbent is also in talks to play Thatcher's husband, Denis. THR told us that:

The film is set in 1982 and tracks Thatcher as she tries to save her career in the 17 days preceding the 1982 Falklands War. The 2 1/2-month war was a turning point for the prime minister, who, after the victory, saw her approval ratings double and went on to win a second term.

Damien Jones is producing and Brian Fillis wrote the script. This one's from Pathe and Film4.
