Lionsgate has released a full gallery of images from the upcoming vampire thriller film Daybreakers, which you can view below.

The gallery features stars Ethan Hawke, Isabel Lucas, Sam Neill, Claudia Karvan and Willem Dafoe.

Hawke portrays a researcher in the year 2019, during a time when a plague has changed most of the world's population into vampires. As the human population dwindles, vampires hunt, capture and farm every remaining human in order to survive, or else must find a blood substitute before time runs out. But some humans won't go down without a fight.

Daybreakers, written and directed by Michael Spierig and Peter Spierig, opens Friday.
