‘Renfield’ Trailer: Nicolas Cage is Count Dracula in Horror-Comedy

Universal Pictures

Take a look at the trailer that’s arrived for Renfield, an upcoming horror-comedy that has Nicolas Cage playing Count Dracula.

The film focuses on Dracula’s loyal servant, Renfield (played by Nicholas Hoult), and what unfolds when he has enough of procuring his master’s prey and doing his every bidding. If Renfield has any hope of parting ways with immortal boss, he’ll just have to figure out how to end his codependency first.

The Lego Batman and The Tomorrow War helmer Chris McKay directs this potentially fun flick, which spawned from a pitch by acclaimed comic book writer Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead, Invincible). The screenplay comes from Ryan Ridley, who has worked as a writer on Invincible, Rick and Morty, and Community.

Renfield, also starring Awkwafina (The Farewell, Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings), Ben Schwartz (Sonic, The Afterparty) and Adrian Martinez (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Focus), will be in Australian cinemas on April 13th and U.S. cinemas on April 14th.
