Robert Eggers has been working on his dream project for years, which reimagines the 1922 classic ‘Nosferatu’, has now released its first trailer online after being shown in some prints of ‘The Bikeriders’ in theaters this weekend. After recorded versions of the trailer spread on social networks, today we have the glorious result in HD.

Third (Fourth?) version of an immortal myth

The clip is very similar to a previous version shown at CinemaCon in April, but with some additional footage. The trailer is full of atmosphere, with frightened villagers, repeated warnings that the vampire is “coming,” and some glimpses of Count Orlok, who looks like he has some hair this time. The shot that he leaves with his mouth open is that of the shadow of a giant hand with claws flying over a city. An evocative nod to expressionism (It seems taken from Murnau’s own Faust) which fits with Eggers’ visual style.

The cast is made up of Bill Skarsgard, Lily-Rose Depp, Nicolas Hoult, Willem Dafoe, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Emma Corrin, Ralph Ineson and Simon McBurney, that will try to give a new light to the film inspired by FW Murnau’s legendary original feature film from 1922, defined here as “a gothic story of obsession between a haunted young woman in 19th century Germany and the ancient Transylvanian vampire who stalks her, bringing with it unspeakable horror.”

There are details in the trailer that make us think that there will be more elements of the novel ‘Dracula’ that did not make it into the 1922 film, which It was actually an unauthorized German silent film adaptation of Bram Stoker’s novel. from 1897. It starred Max Schreck in the role of Count Orlok and in 1979 it was re-shot with the title ‘Nosferatu, the vampire’. This new approach will hit American theaters on Christmas Day, but surely more than a few countries will end up releasing it in January 2025.
