From zombies to vampires

You do remember the movie UNDEAD, I'm sure of it. Well, as much as I wanted to like it...blah blah blah. Anyhoo, the two Spierig brothers that brought us that film are going in for their second feature, DAYBREAKERS. Though this time, I have a feeling they'll do a tad bit better. Why? Ethan Hawke, alongside Willem Dafoe, will be out fighting new age vampires who actually own a global corporation headed by none other than vampire President Dr. Alan Grant, I mean Sam Neil. Keep reading for more info and screens from DAYBREAKERS.

The film has already wrapped production and has been working post production for some time but piqued my interest back last summer. The actors aboard were all impressed with the new approach the Spierig brothers wanted to take on the vampire genre. Ya I know, every new vampire flick is supposed to take "a new approach on the genre," but this time I believe it's true. Taking place in 2017, the world has been taken over by vampires and their blood supply is now running low. I believe Hawke plays a scientist who sets out with an insurgent group of vampires to save humankind. YAY. I'll keep an eye out for the trailer
hopefully out in the next few weeks but for now enjoy these delightful screenshots. The film is set for a hopeful Autumn release.

Ethan Hawke is Will Smith is a scientist
Same Neil looking Presidential in The Evil Office. Get it? Like The Oval Office.
I'd offer you some juice or something but grocery stores are always closed at night. I haven't been shopping in 20 years. Pity
It seems this person died

Is it just me or...can anyone else go for a vampire rom-com?
