Check This Out: Spierig Brothers' Daybreakers Vampire Poster
More vampires? Haven't we seen enough of them with Twilight and True Blood? No, these are the dark, gritty vampires, and one of them in Willem Dafoe (and other is Ethan Hawke). Now I've got you interested! Daybreakers was first announced years ago, and we even featured some first look photos back in January of last year. Now our friends at Ain't It Cool News have finally debuted the first teaser poster. With any luck, this means we'll see a trailer this week. Lionsgate has scheduled this for release in January of next year. This looks a lot like the 30 Days of Night posters with a touch of 28 Days Later. Pretty badass, I'd say. You?
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.
