trailer break: ‘Daybreakers’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

The January release date is not encouraging, but I like this trailer. I like the new take on the very old vampire tropes. I like that this is from brothers Michael and Peter Spierig, who made the surprisingly poignant Undead on the cheap a few years ago in Australia. Now, it they’ve got names (Willem Dafoe, Ethan Hawke, Sam Neill) and a budget. I’m excited to see what they can do with that.

Daybreakers opens in the U.S. on January 8, 2010; no U.K. release date has been announced.

I’m excited about this one too. I’m a little hesitant because they filmed it way back in 2007 (reminds me of Ghost Rider, which also took years to come out), though I’m pretty sure their budget got a retroactive upgrade, so they did some reshoots.

Regardless, it’s one of the best trailers I’ve seen in ages…
