Renfield: trailer

The first trailer of the Dracula film, ‘Renfield’ starring Nicholas Hoult and Nicolas Cage was radiated by Universal. While Nicolas Kim Coppola will be seen as Dracula, Nicholas Hoult will be seen as Renfield. In the two-minute clip, Renfield says he needs to “get out of a toxic relationship” as he enters a modern-day help circle.

As other group members appear concerned for Renfield, he defines that his boss is “different”. Thereafter, in the trailer, the screen then twinkles.

Renfield begins as a faithful servant who gradually becomes disillusioned with bringing out Dracula’s malevolent deeds. When a gridlock cop played by Awkwafina catches his eye, love fuels Renfield to reconsider his outlook on life and his gameness to continue supporting Dracula.

The Plot of Renfield

Nicholas Hoult (The Menu) plays Renfield, the anguished aide to history’s most egotistical employer, Dracula, in this modern horror story about Dracula’s devoted servant (Nicolas Cage). Renfield is compelled to secure his master’s prey and carry out all of his depraved instructions. Renfield, however, is finally prepared to explore whether there is life away from The Prince of Darkness after generations of service. If only he could figure out how to stop being dependent on others.

Renfield, the troubled aide to his narcissistic boss, Dracula, is forced to procure his master’s quarry and do his every bidding. However, after centuries of captivity, he’s ready to see if there’s a life outside the shade of the Prince of Darkness.

In recent years, Universal Studios tried to revive and update their favorite Golden Age movie monsters (Dracula a novel by Bram Stoker, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, the Wolfman, etc ) by making films set in an affiliated universe called The Dark Universe. Unfortunately, specialties went sour fast. The 2017 Tom Cruise-led remake of The Mummy bombed just as poorly as The Wolfman (2010) starring Benicio Monserrate Rafael del Toro Sánchez is a Puerto Rican actor and producer as well. Only 2020’s The Invisible Man, created by successful horror creators Blumhouse productions is an American film and television production company founded in 2000 by Jason Blum, met with any crucial success.
