“That cold, ain’t the weather… That’s death approaching.”
Is it just me or are there a lot of trailers hitting the web this week? And we haven’t been posting all of them (as some of them just rent worth watching). Yesterday we posted the new trailer for Will Smith’s I Am Legend. And now IGN brings us the first movie trailer for another vampire film, 30 Days of Night. A couple days back we showed you the 30 Days of Night movie poster, which we thought looked super cool. In the new trailer, I like how the director used a blue but almost colorless palette to tell the story. I have never read the graphic novel, but I’ve flipped through it more than a couple times. And this film looks like the comic. 30 Days of Night looks to be everything I was anxiously expecting plus some. Check out the trailer after the jump.
The film is directed by David Slade, a music video turned film director who broke on to the scene with Hard Candy at Sundance 05. The movie stars Josh Hartnett and Melissa George as a married sheriff and deputy in an Alaska town where they encounter a month without daylight. I always was amazed that this idea was never really explored before, because a town like this is a perfect feeding ground for a group of vampires.30 Days of Night hits theaters on October 19th 2007.
