2011 saw vampire movie hits such as Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 1, Fright Night, Priest and Dylan Dog. They were huge hits for the vampire fan. So what are the vampire movies that we can look forward to in 2012? Here is the five confirmed and a couple thta may be finished during the year.
First on January 20th, the fourth installment of the Underworld Series – New Dawn will premiere. It has been ten years since the second movie and Selene has been imprisoned. humans know about vampires and lycans and have a secret weapon. Will this one be a hit or typical humans fight vampire fight lycans movie? Lets hope that it will live up to the hype but I dont’ see Michael anywhere.
On May 11th the Tim Burton remake of Dark Shadows will hit the screen with original Dark Shadows fans holding their breathe and hoping that Burton and lead actor Johnny Depp doesn’t make this one too comedic. Depp portrays one of the original screen vampires that we all grew up loving- Barnabus Collins. Whether good or bad there will be thousands of vampire fans in line for this one.
June 22nd brings the movie adaptation to Seth Grahame-Smith’s book Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln is angered by his mother’s death and takes on not only the Civil War but the vampir race as well.
The comedic vampire movie of the year willpremiere on September 21st titled Hotel Transylvania. It is a 3D animated film starring Adam Sandler, Fran Drescher, Miley Cyrus, CeeLo Green and David Spade. The story is that Dracula is is an owner of Hotel Transylvania a five star resort for monsters. It seems a little ampy but vampires have to be funny sometimes too. It kind of rings of another Treansylvania 6-5000 which was one of my favorite movies.
And the most anticipated move of not just the year but forever if you ask any girl under 18. On November 16th the final movie odf the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 will air. It will complete the tale of Bella and Edward as Bella becomes a vampire, raises a vampire hybrid and protects the Cullens from the hundreds of vampires coming to kill them and her child. The lines for this movie will beone to see.
And two movies that have not confirmed dates but have stated as 2012 as their premiere dates is Vamps with Alicia Silverstone, a basic college vampire show and Byzantium a story about a mother and daughter vampire team.
