Daybreakers Bites Into Blu-ray This May…

DaybreakersAfter being scolded by movie reviewer Gregg Senko for not checking this one out in the theater, I think this will be a day 1 purchase for me on the Blu-ray format.  Lucky for me, May is right around the corner.  Lionsgate has announced a May 11th Blu-ray release date for the blood war film, Daybreakers.  The stars Ethan Hawke and everyone’s favorite green enemy, Willem Dafoe.  The vampire film was touted as being both original and clever, so I am looking forward to checking this one out.  Check out the full press release from Lionsgate below.

The blood wars begin in Daybreakers!  Making its Blu-ray Disc and DVD debut this Spring, the film stars two-time Academy Award® nominees Ethan Hawke (Actor in a Supporting Role, Training Day, 2001 and Adapted Screenplay, Before Sunset, 2004) and Willem Dafoe (Actor in a Supporting Role, Platoon, 1986 and Actor in a Supporting Role, Shadow of the Vampire, 2000).  Critics are salivating over this sci-fi action thriller that has audiences on the edge of their seats! “Original, scary and action-packed” (Fangoria Magazine), Daybreakers is “confidently crafted and legitimately clever!” (Fearnet.com).

Written and directed by The Spierig Brothers, audiences are introduced to a futuristic world – where vampires reign supreme and blood is big business.  As the human population nears extinction, vampires must capture and farm every remaining human, or find a blood substitute before time runs out.  However, a covert group of vampires makes a remarkable discovery, one which has the power to save the human race.   In-depth bonus materials include the featurette, “Making of Daybreakers,” audio commentary with the directors and special effects creator Steve Boyle, a poster gallery and the theatrical trailer.  Exclusive to the Blu-ray Disc is an extended feature-length version of the “Making of Daybreakers” that spans the filmmaking process, a short film from the directors entitled “The Big Picture,” Bonus View™ Storyboard and Animatics film comparison and a second disc containing digital copy.
