Nicolas Cage Dracula: Renfield Movie Trailer Shows New Version
The character of Dracula appeared in countless productions as a leading and supporting character. His first appearance was in 1958 with Hammer Film Productions’ Dracula. From that moment on, films continued to be released until the 1992 masterpiece Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Although he has traditionally been linked to horror, the latest production has a different tone. Starring Nicolas Cage as Dracula, the Renfield movie will offer a more comedic and satirical take on the most famous vampire in history.
The movie is centred on his assistant, or henchman, named Renfield. In the plot, we will see how the character struggles to avoid Dracula’s abuses and tries to find his own way.

A new film in the style of horror and comedy, Renfield, will be released soon with Nicolas Cage as the king of vampires, Dracula. This one shows a more modern version of this vampire with his relationship with henchman Renfield. Nicholas Hoult is the actor in charge of bringing the henchman to life. Universal Pictures has just released the trailer of this production, as well as a promotional image.
In the image, we see how annoyed Nicolas Cage Dracula tries to sink his fangs into the henchman Renfield while he flees in panic. On the other hand, the trailer tells a somewhat different story than what we have seen so far in the King of Vampires franchise. This is because Renfield is the main character and not the character played by Cage.
We can see in the trailer how Nicolas Cage Dracula controls Renfield and turns him into his henchman. The Count tortures and forces the young man to do things for him, like getting him dinner and moving his things, among other things. However, this character seeks to free himself from the vampire’s yoke with the help of a city detective.
So they set out to confront and defeat Cage’s character, although it will not be easy. In one part, it seems that Renfield became a vampire of sorts or at least has the ability to possess supernatural powers momentarily. The question would be who will win Dracula or Hoult’s character.
