I know, I know. MORE vampires, but I have to say, Daybreakers looks pretty damn cool (check out the poster). The film is by writer/director team Michael Spierig and Peter Spierigstars who are used to working with the this type of film as the also work and directed Undead. The film stars Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe, Isabel Lucas, Michael Dorman and Sam Neill.
Much like may of the more interesting takes on vampires, this film deals with what it would be like if the vampires existed in everyday life. This film takes the perspective of what if humans were no longer considered a population but a resource to vampires, and all that was left was a civilization of vampires who run the world much like how we run it today. Just like us, they have depleted their only life source and have to find an answer before it’s too late.
Check out the trailer below…
It looks like it deals with the idea a number of interesting issues including humans desire for immortality at any price and how that getting what you want and abusing your resources can lead to the extinction of an entire race (even if they are already dead). Doesn’t sound like it’s that different from the way things are now.
What do you think of the trailer?
