Thomas Newman Scores Bram Stoker’s THE LAST VOYAGE OF THE DEMETER – In Theaters August 11
Based on a single chilling chapter from Bram Stoker’s classic novel Dracula, THE LAST VOYAGE OF THE DEMETER tells the terrifying story of the merchant ship Demeter, which was chartered to carry private cargo – fifty unmarked wooden crates – from Carpathia to London. Strange events befall the doomed crew as they attempt to survive the ocean voyage, stalked each night by a merciless presence onboard the ship. When the Demeter finally arrives off the shores of England, it is a charred, derelict wreck. There is no trace of the crew.
From DreamWorks Pictures and the producers of Zodiac and BLACK SWAN, THE LAST VOYAGE OF THE DEMETER is directed by Norwegian horror virtuoso André Øvredal (SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK, TROLLHUNTER), from a script by Bragi F. Schut (ESCAPE ROOM), Stefan Ruzowitzky (THE COUNTERFEITERS) and Zak Olkewicz (BULLET TRAIN), based on the chapter “The Captain’s Log” of Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
The film stars Corey Hawkins (IN THE HEIGHTS, STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON) as Clemens, a doctor who joins the Demeter crew, Aisling Franciosi (GAME OF THRONES, THE NIGHTINGALE) as an unwitting stowaway, Liam Cunningham (GAME OF THRONES, CLASH OF THE TITANS) as the ship’s captain and David Dastmalchian (DUNE, THE ANT-MAN franchise) as the Demeter’s first mate. The film also features Jon Jon Briones (RATCHED, AMERICAN HORROR STORY), Stefan Kapicic (DEADPOOL FILMS, BETTER CALL SAUL), Nikolai Nikolaeff (STRANGER THINGS, BRUISED) and Javier Botet (IT films, MAMA).
Multi-Oscar winning composer Thomas Newman (1917, SKYFALL, THE HELP, FINDING NEMO, THE GREEN MILE, AMERICAN BEAUTY, THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION) is scoring the film.
THE LAST VOYAGE OF THE DEMETER is set to be released on August 11, 2023, by Universal Pictures.
