Default Daybreakers (2008)

New aussie vampire flick directed by the Spierig brothers (Undead) and starring Ethan Hawke starts filming on the Gold Coast on the 16th.

It is 2016, and it has been 10 years since the plague transformed ordinary people into Vampires dependent on human blood for survival. As the human race nears extinction and the Vampire population grows desperate for blood, a group of rebel Vampires battle military forces to save the last vestiges of humanity.

Just saw a news report for Daybreakers and I'm not too sure about it. The idea of a full on vampire plague sounds great and I really enjoyed Undead, but it looks like it could easily end up being just another dull vampire action movie. Even so, it's still great to see that aussie film companies are finally growing some balls and contributing to the horror genre rather than playing it safe with comedies and dramas.

Personally, I don't think too much of Undead, or at least I don't appreciate it as much as others seem to.

I really like the cast, but the trailer makes me want to listen to some Placebo more than anything else.

Saw the trailer last night and even though I am not a fan of Ethan Hawke I will give it a watch.

While I didn't like Undead at all, this looks kinda interesting. Got a bit of Blade II vibe from it. Plus, Sam Neill rules.

this looks very interesting, will be seeing this.

as said before, great cast.

since this is coming out this year, could a mod change it to (2009)?

I just saw the preview for this yesterday and it looks like it could be really interesting. I'm a big Dafoe and Ethan Hawke fan so I'm pretty stoked on this.
