Brothers Michael and Peter Spierig are co-directing the upcoming vampire thriller Daybreakers. Now, before you put this film on the “another lame vampire flick,” list know that Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe will star as vampires, so you might want to stick around. The film has been in the works since the beginning of this year, but today Ain’t It Cool News finally debuted its first poster.

Take a look at the entire poster after the jump . . .


In the year 2019, a plague has transformed most human beings into vampires. Faced with a dwindling blood supply, the fractured dominant race plots their survival; meanwhile, a researcher works with a covert band of vamps on a way to save humankind.

I like that the poster is completely red since the film deals with vampires, and blood-sucking will be imminent. Light touches of yellow, black and white make it very artsy and it’s great that not too much is going on. Could this be due to a good sense of direction? We’ll have to wait for the trailer to find out.

Daybreakers is set to hit theaters January 8, 2010.
