Can Ethan Hawke's Daybreakers Make Vampires Edgy Again?

Daybreakers hyper-stylized world of tomorrow in is run by vampires, while humans are on the verge of extinction. Faced with imminent starvation, vampire Ethan Hawk turns to Willem Dafoe and the last remaining humans for help.

We're going to go ahead and call it: Daybreakers looks fantastic. Pay no heed to Dafoe's cheese-ball lines and look at the intricate futuristic world-building here. There are blood stations, blood banks, and oh my yes — that's Dr. Grant as a vampire. It's been so long since we've had a solid vampire epic, and we dearly want this to be Fifth Element good, which is the feel I'm getting from it.

looks like this is going to be a fun movie! I love that song in the event by Kate Bush, wonder who is doing that cover?
