So the world is mostly vampires, and everyone that’s still human is hunted down with regular ease and hung out to dry – being kept alive enough to pump out that sweet, sweet blood that vampires crave. Unfortunately, most of the vampires are in business suits and apparently there’s a food shortage on the horizon that one Vampire Doctor (I’ll go ahead and resist the urge to call him Dr. Acula) has to try to solve by creating a blood synthetic – or working with the humans for something else entirely.
It might sound incredibly cool or brain-numbingly cheesy, but I think after you check out the trailer, you’ll figure out which side Daybreakers lands on:
Aside from a few terrible lines (Dafoe’s character saying, “We’re the guys with the crossbows” (which is probably something like, “We’re the fucking guys who are gonna rip your heart out and watch you turn to fucking dust,” in the not-for-everyone trailer)), it actually looks really sleek. Ethan Hawke has proven that he can play roles like this, and I’m always down for anything Sam Neil is in. Plus, it looks like we’ll get to see more of Isabel Lucas (which seems difficult considering we already got a solid look all the way up into her colon in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen).
All in all, I’d say this looks like it has the potential to be really cool. And for some reason, it seems like it could have easily been the sequel to I Am Legend.
Why is everyone always trying to cure vampires? Can’t someone just love them for who they are?
Also, I hate to spoil anything, but I’m pretty sure that Bella ends up with Edward at the end of the movie.
Daybreakers hits theaters on January 8, 2010. Check out the trailer in high definition over on Yahoo Movies.
