Bring Nicolas Cage's batty (that's a double entendre) into the comfort of your own home.

A rollicking twist on Bram Stoker's seminal contribution to the world of literary horror, the film shines the fanged spotlight onto the character of R.M. Renfield (played by X-Men alum Nicholas Hoult), long-abused servant of the most famous vampire in history.
After nearly a century of providing his master with fresh victims to drain of blood, Renfield comes to realize that he is stuck in a highly toxic relationship. Teaming up with a traffic cop looking to rid her city of deep-rooted corruption (Awkwafina), the eponymous hero sets out to end Dracula's reign of terror and dismantle a multi-generational crime empire in one fell swoop. Ben Schwartz (Sonic the Hedgehog), Adrian Martinez (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty), and Shohreh Aghdashloo (House of Sand and Fog) co-star.
Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead) conceived of the screen story, which served as the basis for a screenplay penned by Ryan Ridley (Rick and Morty). The project marks the second live-action effort from director Chris McKay, whose resume also includes The LEGO Batman Movie and The Tomorrow War. Kirkman and McKay produced the film alongside David Alpert, Bryan Furst, and Sean Furst. Samantha Nisenboim was an executive producer.

Or head on over to Peacock, where Vampire Academy is now in session. And that's not all! Universal Pictures will release a second Dracula-inspired movie — Last Voyage of the Demeter — into theaters this August.
