The wacky take on Dracula and Renfield’s toxic relationship is close to release, get your final look here. 

Starring Nicholas Hoult in the titular role, Renfield is set to be an unconventional take on the classic Dracula story. It focuses on Dracula’s human servant, who’s fed up of taking care of his blood-sucking master and seeks a normal life. Chris McKay is in the director’s chair, with the screenplay written by Ryan Ridley.

With Dracula played by Nicolas Cage, we were expecting the film to take a more comedic approach to the story, and earlier trailers certainly confirmed that, showcasing Cage in full, well… Cage mode.

The final trailer thankfully doesn’t show much more than we’ve already seen, but builds hype for what is already a highly-anticipated film. Should Renfield prove to be a commercial success, it will hopefully point out clearly to other studios the continued success Universal is having with a string of unique and well-told monster stories, rather than attempting to unify everything into a single shared universe or single franchise.

The film releases in the UK in cinemas on Friday April 14th.
