Daybreakers is an upcoming 2010 vampire film written and directed by Peter and Michael Spierig. The film stars Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe and Sam Neill. Filming took place in Australia from July to September 2007. Daybreakers is scheduled to be released in the United Kingdom on January 6, 2010 and in North America on January 8, 2010

This movie has really captured my interest. I've seen two trailers for it so far and it does look quite interesting. The concept for the movie is that the world is turning into vampires and they need to come up with a blood substitute. With actors like Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe, and Sam Neill, you really can't go wrong. With all the hype over Twilight, it will be refreshing to see a movie where there is no sickly white teenagers falling in and out of love. I'm not a Twilight hater, it is just not my cup of tea. I really believe there will be a rebellion again those type of books and movies because people want a true, traditional vampire. I believe people are hunger for the old school vampire. That is why I believe my book will really take off once it's published. I saw Anne Rice on TV not that long ago talking about the Twilight phenomena and she feels that there is room for the innovation of all the "new" things that have been brought into the vampire genre over the past 30 years. Vampires walking in daylight, half vampire and half human, and so many more differences. She believes it is a "good" thing. Personally, I have issues with that. I feel as though there is so much more that can be done in the vampire genre that don't include getting away from the earlier traditions. Vampires can't cross water or look upon the cross. Of course, this won't be solved in a blog post, but it is worth mentioning. Daybreakers looks like a good movie from the trailer... doesn't mean it's a good one, but I have faith. Check out the trailer below and look for it in January...

A malicious plague has befallen the human race, transforming the majority of the Earth's population into vampires and draining the world of an increasingly precious resource: blood. Now, it's up to two brothers (Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe) to decide what happens next. As the human population nears zero, will the vampires be forced to feast on the few men and women who remain? Or could science hold the key to a less destructive solution?
