Universal has released a trio of clips from their upcoming Dracula movie The Last Voyage of the Demeter, directed by Andre Ovredal
Universal Pictures will be giving the horror film The Last Voyage of the Demeter, which is based on a single chapter, the Captain’s Log, from Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel Dracula, a theatrical release on August 11th. The release date is just a few weeks away so they decided to promote it by dropping three clips online. You can watch one of the clips in the embed above, and the other two can be found at the bottom of this article.
Escaping development hell twenty years after the script was first written (Bragi F. Schut, Stefan Ruzowitzky, and Zak Olkewicz all receive writing credits on the finished film), The Last Voyage of the Demeter tells the story of the merchant ship Demeter, which was chartered to carry private cargo – fifty unmarked wooden crates – from Carpathia to London. Strange events occur as the crew tries to survive on the ocean voyage. They are stalked by a merciless presence aboard the ship. When the Demeter arrives at the English coast, it is a charred wreck. The crew is nowhere to be found.
The film stars Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton) as Clemens, a doctor who joins the Demeter crew; Aisling Franciosi (The Nightingale) as an unwitting stowaway; Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones) as the ship’s captain; and David Dastmalchian (the Ant-Man franchise) as the Demeter’s first mate. Also in the cast are Jon Jon Briones (American Horror Story), Stefan Kapicic (Deadpool films), Nikolai Nikolaeff (Stranger Things), and the aforementioned Javier Botet.
