At least, I think that’s the Pope. Either way, Nicolas Cage’s Dracula is up to some major sacrilege in Renfield‘s final trailer. And honestly, with every new tease we see for this movie, we love it more. It seems to have all the components to really become a hit. Firstly, it knows where to poke fun at itself. Secondly, it has Nicolas Cage as Dracula, and he’s slaying. And thirdly, beneath all of that camp and bluster is a true emotional heart that will probably hit home universally. Monsters, they’re just like us. Insect munching and cloak dry-cleaning aside, we’re all Renfield in our hearts.
Renfield‘s latest trailer has a lot of guts (and blood) and a lot of heart. That’s many internal organs, but we treasure it. Renfield has been Dracula’s servant for almost a hundred years, and he’s sick of it. So the time has come for him to self-actualize. Unfortunately, like all toxic partners, Dracula doesn’t like the sound of that too much. But luckily, Renfield is about to learn that he is enough.
The synopsis for the movie shares:
In this modern monster tale of Dracula’s loyal servant, Emmy nominee Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road, X-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.
Of course, Radiohead’s “Creep” playing in the background is just the cherry on top of this emotional/hilarious blood sundae. Basically, we’re crying already over this Renfield trailer. And we can’t wait to watch the whole movie when it releases in theaters on April 14.
