Official Trailer for ‘Interview With the Vampire’ Series with Sam Reid
“I was being hunted… and I was completely unaware it was happening.” AMC has revealed the first official trailer for Interview With the Vampire, their fresh new take on the iconic vampire book by Anne Rice. This trailer comes direct from Comic-Con, as they’ve been promoting the series there before streaming in October. The gothic tale, which follows the love/hate relationship between two vampires beginning in the late 18th century, 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. Once again, Hollywood is doing nothing but remake/rebooting every old property they can get their hands on and this is next. 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. This looks a bit cheesy but might be fun to watch.
