On August 11, 2023, Universal’s The Last Voyage of the Demeter will resurrect Dracula, and the movie’s official trailer descended over the internet this morning.

The horror picture, which is based on Bram Stoker’s classic horror book, will tell a distinct Dracula story on the high seas, and the teaser provides us our first glimpse at this film’s rendition of the iconic Bloodsucker. The Last Voyage of the Demeter is leaning toward portraying Dracula as a full-on bat monster, in contrast to many adaptations that portray him as a human, and we love to see it.

The Last Voyage of the Demeter, written by Bragi Schut, has been circulating for many years with several directors attached at various times. André vredal (The Autopsy of Jane Doe, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark), who had been named as the Amblin Partners movie’s director back in 2021, is the one who ultimately found himself on board the ship.

The Last Voyage of the Demeter features Corey Hawkins (Kong: Skull Island, “The Walking Dead”) as the lead. The most recent draft of the script was written by Bullet Train’s Zak Olkewicz.

The Captain’s Log chapter of Bram Stoker’s famous Dracula novel from 1897 serves as the basis for the movie. The chapter describes the tale of the Russian schooner Demeter, which was hired to transport 24 unmarked wooden crates as private cargo from the Carpathians to London. The movie will describe the bizarre incidents that befell the ship’s crew as they tried to endure the long voyage while being followed at night by a menacing presence. It was a wreck when it finally landed close to Whitby Harbour. The crew’s whereabouts were unknown.

Along with Javier Botet playing Dracula, the cast also includes Aisling Franciosi, Liam Cunningham, David Dastmalchian, Jon Jon Briones, Stefan Kapicic, and Nikolai Nikolaeff.

Brad Fischer, Arnold Messer, and Mike Medavoy are the producers.

Over the years, directors such as Robert Schwentke, Marcus Nispel, Stefan Ruzowitsky, David Slade, and Neil Marshall have been linked to the project.
