[Trailer] Nic Cage Camps It Up In RENFIELD

April is going to be a busy month for all of us genre fans – adding to the fun is RENFIELD – taking a look at the Dracula mythos through the eyes of the Count’s faithful companion. The trailer dropped today – you know you want to see it.

From the press release:

Evil doesn’t span eternity without a little help. 

In this modern monster tale of Dracula’s loyal servant, Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury RoadX-Men franchise) stars as Renfield, the tortured aide to history’s most narcissistic boss, Dracula (Oscar® winner Nicolas Cage).  Renfield is forced to procure his master’s prey and do his every bidding, no matter how debased. But now, after centuries of servitude, Renfield is ready to see if there’s a life outside the shadow of The Prince of Darkness.  If only he can figure out how to end his codependency. 

Renfield is directed by Chris McKay (The Tomorrow War, The LEGO Batman Movie) from a screenplay by Ryan Ridley (Ghosted series, Rick & Morty series), based on an original idea byThe Walking Dead and Invincible creator Robert Kirkman.
