“If you finally submit to your nature, you will be filled with all the life you could hold.” Time to descend into the dark world of vampires once again. AMC has debuted a new 60-second promo teaser for Interview With the Vampire, their fresh new take on the iconic vampire book by Anne Rice. The gothic tale, which follows the love/hate relationship between two vampires, is about Louis de Pointe, Lestat De Lioncourt and Claudia’s epic story of love, blood and the perils of immortality. Everyone remembers the iconic movie, Interview with the Vampire from 1994, because it starred Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise and Kirsten Dunst. This new series stars Sam Reid as Lestat, Jacob Anderson as Louis, Eric Bogosian, Chris Stack, Kalyne Coleman, plus Bailey Bass as Claudia, Assad Zaman, and John DiMaggio. It’s clear from this trailer that Louis is being interviewed decades later and is recounting his early days, which is right from the book but it still makes this look compelling. At least Jacob Anderson’s performance seems delectable. Have a bite.
Here’s the “Quiet Dark” teaser trailer for AMC’s series Interview with the Vampire, from YouTube:
