The Vampire's Assistant trailer online

Vampire tale Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant (to give it its full, somewhat ungainly new title) has been delayed for a while, but finally looks like it'll arrive later this year - and the first trailer is online.

The plot tells the story of a lad named Darren Shan (Chris Massoglia) who meets the mysterious Larten Crepsley (John C Reilly) at a freak show.

When he learns that Crepsley is a vampire - and is offered the chance to become one himself, Shan, sick of his boring regular life, accepts and everything changes.

We'll a little mixed on this one - Reilly's good value, but it might be a little too silly for our taste. Still, take a look at the trailer below and judge for yourself.
