Jared Leto leads the bloodthirsty first trailer for vampire blockbuster Morbius
A first trailer for Morbius, the new vampire blockbuster starring Jared Leto, has arrived. Click below to watch it:
Leto plays Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist who tries to cure a rare blood disease using an experimental treatment that combines electroshock therapy and vampire bats.
Sadly, things don't exactly work out and Morbius gains a taste for human blood. As well as this, he can fly, has superhuman strength and healing capabilities. When he bites victims and drinks their blood, his attacks can prove lethal, but when bitten by him, his victims do not become vampires.
That taste puts him in the FBI’s sights and he’s forced to take to the shadows.
Starring alongside Leto are Adria Arjona, Matt Smith, Jared Harris and Tyrese Gibson, while Life director Daniel Espinosa is behind the camera.
Morbius will be released into UK cinemas on July 31st.
