Nick Cage, Nicholas Hoult & Awkwafina scare up the laughs in new 'Renfield' trailer

The new trailer for Universal Pictures' Renfield already has the horror community buzzing after the first trailer was released this week.

The titular character 'Renfield' (Hoult) has had enough with the toxic work relation he has with his boss. Tired of his master's abusive demands, he finds a support group to vent his frustrations. We see his growing disillusionment with having to procure meals (nuns and cheerleaders) and cleaning up the remains (getting rid of the bodies). However, it seems 'Dracula' (Cage) has bestowed upon his faithful servant a few powers of his own. When Renfield prevents a shooting at a local restaurant he befriends a police officer (Awkwafina) and opens up about his line of work. When a plan is hatched to drain the legendary Vampire of his powers, it's clear old Drac won't go quietly into the night.

Directed by Chris McKay (The Tomorrow War) from a screenplay by Ryan Ridley

Co staring: Ben Schwartz (Sonic the Hedgehog), Bess Rous, Jenna Kanell, and Adrian Martinez.

'Renfield' Hit's theaters April 14th, 2023
