Trailer Debut: The Spierig Brothers’ Daybreakers

You’ve heard about it, you’ve been waiting for it (well, some of you have, anyway), and now it’s finally here: the very first trailer for Aussie directors Michael and Peter Spierig’s futuristic horror movie “Daybreakers”. For those who saw the brothers’ “Undead”, it’s obvious they had a bigger budget this time around, and the cast, of course, is solid, with Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe, and Sam Neill all in big roles. Unfortunately maybe I just expecting too much, because the trailer leaves me just a bit underwhelmed. Shouldn’t it be more, I don’t know, exciting? Anyways, first trailer for “Daybreakers” below.

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 works with a covert band of vamps on a way to save humankind.

Starring Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe, Isabel Lucas, Sam Neill, Claudia Karvan, Jay Laga’aia, Vince Colosimo, Christopher Kirby, Michael Dorman, and Mungo McKay. Written and directed by Michael and Peter Spierig (“Undead”).

Vamp it up January 8, 2010.
