Are you ready for Nicolas Cage as Dracula? Because we are. Renfield releases in theaters on April 14th from Universal Pictures.

In this modern monster tale of Dracula’s loyal servant, Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury RoadX-Men franchise) stars as Renfield, the tortured aide to history’s most narcissistic boss, Dracula (Oscar winner Nicolas Cage).  Renfield is forced to procure his master’s prey and do his every bidding, no matter how debased. But now, after centuries of servitude, Renfield is ready to see if there’s a life outside the shadow of The Prince of Darkness.  If only he could figure out how to end his codependency. 

Renfield is directed by Chris McKay (The Tomorrow War, The LEGO Batman Movie) from a screenplay by Ryan Ridley (Ghosted series, Rick & Morty series), based on an original idea by The Walking Dead and Invincible creator Robert Kirkman

The film co-stars Awkwafina (The Farewell, Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings), Ben Schwartz (SonicThe Afterparty) and Adrian Martinez (The Secret Life of Walter MittyFocus) and Emmy winner and Oscar nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo (House of SaddamHouse of Sand and Fog). 

Renfield continues the excellent film slate that Universal has in 2023 with movies like Cocaine Bear, M3GAN, and Knock At the Cabin. The movie is a sequel to the original Dracula from back in 1931. The classic Universal Monsters matter more than ever now. You can even see them in 4K, which is an excellent viewing experience.
