With the overabundance of vampire-starring or vampire-themed television shows, movies, books and more that we’ve seen surface in recent times, there are a few standouts among them that are unique, offering a fresh (or as fresh as can be) take on the genre.
One such piece of media is the upcoming Michael Spierig & Peter Spierig film, Daybreakers, which takes the perspective of our usual vampires hiding in secrecy from humans and flips it around so that vampires rule the world and the few humans left must fight for their survival while the nocturnal undead scramble to find a substitute for their most precious but limited resource: blood.
Most of our updates on this flick have come in the form of posters that we’ve shared in our weekly Screen Rant Poster Friday features over the last few months. Now,we have a new Daybreakers trailer for you to enjoy and it’s something you should definitely check out.
Here’s the synopsis if you’re unfamiliar with the movie:
In the year 2019, a plague has transformed most every human into vampires. Faced with a dwindling blood supply, the fractured dominant race plots their survival; meanwhile, a researcher works with a covert band of vamps on a way to save humankind.

I really dig the style of this trailer, which follows in the same vein as the first trailer with the slow-mo scenes and cool music overlay. This one is a little more action-focused and shares a few new scenes. I’m definitely excited to see this film.
Daybreakers stars Ethan Hawke, Isabel Lucas, Willem Dafoe, Sam Neill, Claudia Karvan and Jay Laga’aia. It is written and directed by Michael Spierig & Peter Spierig.
