More Vampire News – New Daybreakers Poster
Posted by GoreMaster Special Effects on November 19, 2009
If glittery vampires such as those in The Twilight Saga: New Moon aren’t quite your thing then worry not, because the tougher, meaner variety are still doing the rounds also.
A new quad poster has been released for Michael Spierig and Peter Spierig’s DAYBREAKERS, starring Willem Dafoe, Ethan Hawke, Isabel Lucas and Sam Neil. Gone are the lovey dovey vampire/werewolf/human love stories, the Wolf Pack and dare I say it, The Volturi – all replaced by good old fashioned blood, action and evilness (if that’s a word).
Fresh off the success of their inventive take on the zombie genre, Undead masterminds Michael and Peter Spierig direct Ethan Hawke in an ambitious tale of a futuristic Earth populated entirely by vampires, and the efforts made by the creatures to ensure that their food supply doesn’t run out as humankind is faced with extinction.
The year is 2017, and a vampire plague has turned most of the planet’s human population into bloodsucking ghouls. As the population of mortals fast begins to dwindle, a resourceful team of vampires sets out to capture and farm every remaining human while simultaneously researching a consumable blood substitute. Just when all hope seems lost, a secret is discovered that may provide the key to saving the human race.
