New Daybreakers Poster Wants to Harvest Your Blood

Lionsgate has provided us with a brand new poster this morning for their upcoming vampire film Daybreakers, which still looks cool from just about every angle. Our own Brian Salisbury reviewed this film as part of our Fantastic Fest coverage (where it was the closing night selection), saying that it is “a dystopian, sci-fi vampire film that is every bit as entertaining as it is thought-provoking.” I don’t know about you, but that has me jonesing for a little non-Twilight vamp action.

The poster below is focused on the film’s main plot point: the year is 2019, vampires are the majority of Earth’s population, and blood is running out. They’ve harvested all they can from the remaining humans on Earth, and now our blood has become the world’s most precious natural resource. Even though the new poster reminds us of The Matrix, I still think it has some merit.

Two-time Academy Award nominee® 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.

Daybreakers opens nationwide January 8, 2010.
