Universal has unveiled a trailer and a poster for their upcoming Dracula movie The Last Voyage of the Demeter

This weekend’s horror comedy Renfield (read our review HERE) isn’t the only Dracula movie Universal Pictures will be releasing this year. Completely unrelated to Renfield (so don’t expect Nicolas Cage to show up in it) is their August 11th theatrical release The Last Voyage of the Demeter, which is based on a single chapter, the Captain’s Log, from Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel Dracula. And now, just in time to be shown in front of Renfield‘s theatrical screenings, a trailer for The Last Voyage of the Demeter has been released! You can check it out in the embed above, then take a look at the newly unveiled poster 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 Javier Botet (It films).

Directed by Andre Ovredal, The Last Voyage of the Demeter is coming to us from DreamWorks Pictures. Brad Fischer, Mike Medavoy, and Arnold Messer produced the project for Phoenix Pictures. Matthew Hirsch serves as executive producer. What did you think of the trailer for
