daybreakers trailer New Daybreakers Trailer is Awesome

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.

Watch and enjoy:

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.

  1. Another GREAT trailer!

    The line “we’re the ones with the crossbows” is delivered brilliantly by Dafoe

    I’ll be watching this opening weekend for sure.

    p.s. now THIS is an interesting vampire movie. Give me this over New Moon any day (or night)

  2. I couldn’t tell if there was any new footage in there that wasn’t in the first trailer, so I’m wondering why this trailer was even made. I guess for TV spots but I would hope that this doesn’t replace the original 2 and a half minute trailer when it comes to previews for other movies.

  3. Anyone know the song in the trailer?

  4. It does look pretty decent even if it is just another vampire movie.

  5. I can’t believe how much this is like the book, I Am Legend.
    Just wish the movie had been.

  6. the song is running up that hill by placebo

  7. I don’t understand what is so good about that trailer. It’s pretty much the same exact trailer as the first one only condensed into one minute.

  8. Thanks a lot Jay

  9. Sam Neill is my favourite actor!!! I have literally seen every film he has been in, including the banned in some countries Possession. Scariest flick I have ever seen!

  10. Yeah, this trailer does seem to have the same stuff from the previous trailer. But I really didn’t need to see another trailer to be interested. Give me this over that Dawn, I mean Daybreak, I mean, what’s the word? Oh yeah, TWILIGHT, movie anytime. :-)

  11. that looked like a dam good movie, sam neil is allways a great actor.

  12. Daybreakers > Twilight.

    And daybreakers is actually R-rated,the rating for all vampire films, when compared to the bordom which is twilight.Another way of putting it is that this will be a more manly vampire film and hopefully this film will be better that some of the movies in the blade trilogy-unlikely though, but the new take on vampires is certainly fresh compared to other vampire films.

  13. Not to nitpick, but how do two TV vampire shows count as over-abundance — particularly compared to fifty or so crime dramas? And how many vampire-themed Hollywood films have come out this year? I can only think of two.

  14. @ irastev,

    That’s not comparable.

    Crime is based in reality and cops/lawyers are real people.

    Vampires are one specific fictional monster-type being over-used everywhere.

    Oh, and just from this one list, there are 80+ TV Shows/Movies featuring vampires coming out/already out from 2009-2011.

  15. I cant wait for this one!

  16. Like the first trailer more. This is just a tv trailer i guess. Not bad though.

    But this movie will rock.

  17. This movie is gonna be freaking rad, fo-show.

  18. I normally hate vampire movies. They’ve come out with so many in like the past 2 months it’s ridiculous. They never do them right. Just look at Twili… i’m not even gonna finish that.

    But this movie looks like it’s gonna take vampires and actually show what would happen. It looks very good.

  19. Who is the actor who appears on the trailer at the start who says “I’m good at this, I was never good being human”?
    Looks like an amazing film, can’t wait to see it! :)

  20. Good Dammmnnn Trailer I rather to watch this film.. then Twilight

    @Laura Marriott
    I don’t know who that actor might be;but he’s hot..!!

  21. I like the fresh take on the Vampire genere that this film offers. I really hope it doesn’t suck as we get enough of that now.

  22. s3Ld4, he is hot indeed!
    if anyone can find out wat his name is, id be very grateful :)
    he also reminds me of one of my mates n it will bug me if i dont find out his name lol

  23. @ Laura Marriott & s3Ld4

    I totally agree, he is such a hottie! The actors name is Michael Dorman :D
