Above, a look at the new UK quad-sized poster for The Sperig Brothers’ upcoming vampire film Daybreakers, courtesy of Empire. It is one of three new looks that we have for this film, which our Brian Salisbury called “a dystopian, sci-fi vampire film that is every bit as entertaining as it is thought-provoking” when he reviewed it at Fantastic Fest. Since then, it has quickly become one of the few January movies worth looking toward.
Ethan Hawke plays Edward Dalton, a researcher in the year 2019, in which an unknown plague has transformed the world’s population into vampires. As the human population nears extinction, vampires must capture and farm every remaining human, or find a blood substitute before time runs out. However, a covert group of vampires makes a remarkable discovery, one which has the power to save the human race.
For more on this concept of vampires capturing humans and using them to harvest blood, check out this recently released PSA-style TV spot, which is super creepy:
Also new are two new stills, which were sent over to us earlier today by Lionsgate (click to enlarge). They feature stars Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe. Daybreakers also stars Isabel Lucas (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) and Sam Neill. It hits theaters on January 8, 2010. You can watch the trailer here.
