Thanks to friends in low awesome places, me and my friend Katherine dolled up (mink coats, anyone?) for the NYC red carpet premier of Daybreakers, starring Ethan Hawk and directed by the Spierig brothers.

We skipped the will call line and went straight into the lobby for our fresh popcorn and soda. To my mild surprise the crowd was quite mixed – some people we dressed to the nines and others look like they came straight from the welfare office.

Daybreakers plot: In the year 2019, a plague has transformed most every human into vampires. Faced with a dwindling blood supply, the fractured dominant race plots their survival; meanwhile, a researcher works with a covert band of vamps on a way to save humankind. (via IMDB)
In my opinion the plot was amazing [human race is dying out – therefore so will we, haaalp!], the details were comical [blood coffee! human farms! evil pharma company!], the gore was fantastic [exploding bodies! vampire bats!], but the story and characters were a little weak…although I will say that the pharma head’s daughter will break your heart, but I won’t spoil it by telling you why...
