Eva Green hit moviegoers’ collective radar as eye candy in “The Dreamers” and “Casino Royale,” which makes her stellar performance in “Cracks” that much more remarkable.

Kid Cudi feels ‘Fright’

And the clip has fangs.

With the blogosphere erupting over the Kanye West/Jay-Z joint (do we call them “albums” anymore?), Kid Cudi couldn’t have picked a worse time to release his video for “No One Believes Me.”

Actually, it’s not his fault: It’s the “official” music vid for DreamWorks’ remake of “Fright Night,” which opens Friday. I’m under one of those dreaded review embargoes, so I can’t tell you until Friday whether I think the Colin Farrell/Anton Yelchin starrer falls short of the 1985 horror-comedy classic; or whether I think its 3-D effects are needless; or whether I think Imogen Poots (despite her flatulent name) is way, way, way hotter than Amanda Bearse.

In the meantime, Kid Cudi! As with the film, the lushly orchestrated clip is directed by Craig Gillespie (“Lars and the Real Girl”) and looks to take place on the same set. Its dark tone is right in line with the picture, and it’s nice to see what it essentially “just” a tie-in have merit on its own. —Rod Lott
