Renfield: 3 New International Character Posters Released

We have three new international character posters for Renfield, and they are shockingly basic for such a buckwild-looking movie.

We're less than two weeks away from the release of Renfield , and it's a little surprising because it feels like it snuck up on us. Universal hasn't really been promoting this one as much as you think they would, so maybe that isn't a great sign if this is one you've been looking forward to. However, there is a chance that it's just one of those movies that are hard to market because it is so buckwild. Judging from the footage that we have seen, there is a decent chance that "we have no clue how to market this thing" is likely. It'll be a shame if the movie ends up being excellent but flopping because of that. IMP Awards got their hands on some international character posters, but they are insanely basic looking–this movie has potential; it just seems like no one knows how to tap it on the promotion side.

Renfield: Summary, Cast List, Release Date

Evil doesn't span eternity without a little help. 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 can figure out how to end his codependency.
