Nicholas Hoult is the title character while Nicolas Cage appears as Dracula in the first look at the Universal Pictures horror-comedy Renfield.
The character of Renfield has had more of a life on screen than he ever did in Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula. Although he did play a vital part in the story, he wasn’t such a big character as he is in movies. Now though, he has his own film on the horizon. Hitting theaters on April 14th, Universal Pictures will be bringing us the horror-comedy Renfield.
The movie stars Nicholas Hoult as the title character. And he will be supported by the legendary Nicolas Cage as Renfield’s master and employer, Count Dracula. The first trailer and poster for the film have been released. Let’s try and avoid Dracula from sucking our blood as we take a look:
Count Dracula’s lackey Renfield finds a new lease on life in modern-day New Orleans when he falls in love with Rebecca Quincy, a feisty but perennially aggressive traffic cop.
Alongside Hoult and Cage in the film are Awkwafina as Rebecca Quincy, a traffic cop, and Renfield’s love interest, Ben Schwartz as Teddy Lobo, a mobster, Adrian Martinez as Chris Marcos, a traffic cop, Shohreh Aghdashloo as Ella, a crime boss, Bess Rous as Caitlyn, a support group member, James Moses Black as Captain J. Browning, and Caroline Williams as Vanessa.
THE FIRST POSTER
Renfield will try and escape from under the thumb of Count Dracula when it opens on April 14th.
