Check This Out: Impressive Futuristic Poster for Daybreakers

October 13, 2009

A great new poster for the Spierig Brothers' Daybreakers vampire movie starring Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe has debuted on MTV today. After a quick glance, this poster doesn't seem all that interesting. But once you take a closer look and admire the details and the sleek design and just the futuristic look at all, it's quite a beautiful poster (or at least I think so). A few of my friends saw this at the Toronto Film Festival and actually thought it was great, surpassing all of their expectations, which makes me even more excited to eventually see it. I've got very high hopes for this new vampire flick and expect it to deliver on all accounts!

Daybreakers Poster

In the year 2019, a plague has transformed most every human into vampires. Faced with a dwindling blood supply, the fractured dominant race plots their survival; meanwhile, a researcher (Ethan Hawke) works with a covert band of vamps (Willem Dafoe, Claudia Karvan) on a way to save humankind.

Daybreakers is written and directed by Australian brothers Michael and Peter Spierig, who previously directed a 2003 sci-fi horror film titled Undead. This was shot in Australia in late 2007 and has been in post-production since. Lionsgate is bringing Daybreakers to theaters on January 8th, 2010 next year.

    This is a really impressive poster for a movie with an intriguing premise It reminds me of the scene in Matrix when Keanu first "wakes up."
  • Mac
    Maybe this movie will tell us who the Architect is.....woow!
  • Angry Chief
    ...some of the dumbest comments of all time. Hopefully this film will bring new life (hurr hurr) into the vampire genre, especially after that abortion of movie, Twilight, made vampires gay for everyone.

    hmmm something good at last i cant vait muahahahahaha ^VV^

    #4 Get off your high horse. This poster is some massively inspired by The Matrix it's embarrassing.
  • Sabes
    Reminds me of the Matrix, like #2 said. Not too bad of a poster though.
  • Fox
    I agree with #2, and, somewhat inspired by matrix, even the tagline isn't original (but what is, nowadays?)
  • esophus
    Agree with everyone. I think in the context of the movie I will be able to look pass the "human farming" aspect,but if this is the poster they use..everyone and I mean everyone will will link this to The Matrix.
  • esophus
    There were other films of course that toyed with this visual concept. Minority Report,Coma,Star Trek(The Borg)...etc.
  • Dirk Diggler
    I'll take the red pill on this one!
  • Oren
    Well to someone who has absolutely no idea what this movie is about, they will think 'Matrix', but if you know why those humans are hanging like that.. then calling out this poster for copying the matrix is just plain retarded.
  • Six Three
    Looks like that one scene from the Matrix when the robots are growing humans
  • mandarin
    This story would have worked well in a Blade sequel but noooooo
  • Fisherr
    One of the good posters i have seen this year.
  • raquelswell
    I would prefer that the human figures were much more apparent. I think a poster showing one person strapped in that seat would make a bigger impact.
  • can not wait till this film is out
