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.

#1 I agree but this reads more like the true Robert Matheson version which could be good. No CGI vamps for the love of god!

"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." I'm confused, I thought Hawke was a vampire too who was helping to preserve the vampire race from extinction...not the human race. Why would a band of vampires want to preserve humankind? Wouldn't they just want a way to "farm" them and keep only a select group around for feeding?

Willem Dafoe will be one of the vampires!? Now, that would freak me right the fuck out! He looks creepy. I just can't forget his "Drag Queen" moment in Boondock Saints. *shudder* I loooove vampires (unless they thparkle in the thunlight), zombies and monster movies in general. I'm looking forward to this.

Sounds pretty good from what I've heard. I've been wanting to hear more of this since 'Undead' which was a great little Aussie Zombie flick. Only thing is, it's obvious that the vampires are living it up in this movie so why wouldn't the remaining humans want to join them?

The poster design is a complete rip-off of the book "If You Don't Sleep, you Don't Dream" by William Pauley III. Here is the link to the book's artwork: http://www.webook.com/project/If-You-Dont-Sleep-You-Dont-Dream
