Daybreakers will be released to theaters on January 8, 2010. The movie stars Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe, Sam Neill, and directed by Michael Spierig.
Daybreakers Synopsis: Edward Dalton (Ethan Hawke) is 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.

Ready for more vampires? Of course you are! No one ever gets sick of them, do they? Hope not because Hollywood isn’t giving until they’ve drained every last cinematic drop from them.

So Daybreakers, which opens Friday (1/8/10), comes as a welcome treat, a speculative sci-fi film disguised as a horror story, or perhaps a blend of the two. While the vampires are the heroes, they’re also the villains. But, since Twilight and True Blood, those lines have been pretty much obliterated anyway. Read More

However, supplies are dwindling, substitutes aren’t working, and vampires who are driven by starvation to feed on one another tend to mutate for the worse. Read More
