Vampire Trailers Everywhere!
As there isn't tons of official news this week you might need a vampire fix so feel free to check out the 'True Blood' Season 2 trailer here as well as the trailer for Blood: The Last Vampire (both courtesy of Pretty/Scary). 'True Blood' Season 2 starts June 2009 and Blood: The Last Vampire has been picked up but no North American release dates are set so far. Last but certainly not least is the South Korean film Thirst from director Chan-wook Park (Sympathy for Mr. Vengence / Boksuneun naui geot) will be at Cannes later this month and I have my fingers crossed it will make its way to Toronto at some point as it looks awesome. Trailer and hat tip to Row Three for this news!
Update: Found more trailers for Thirst over at Twitch, the top one is much more sensual focused that the previous trailer. It's looking better by each new moment!
