Well, we’ve got another direct-to-DVD trailer today, but this one actually looks a little more promising than Mirrors 2. I wasn’t a huge fan of the first 30 Days of Night movie, but there is clearly an audience for a sequel to it — especially since there are still more comics to draw inspiration from. 30 Days of Night: Dark Days is based on the follow-up graphic novel written by Steve Niles and illustrated by Ben Templesmith. After relocating to Los Angeles, Stella Oleson meets up with a group of fellow survivors who are planning to exact revenge on the vampires.
As expected, Josh Hartnett and Melissa George have not returned for this sequel, and neither has director David Slade. Kiele Sanchez (Lost, A Perfect Getaway) is taking over the role of Stella, and the cast also includes Harold Perrineau and Mia Kirshner. Director Ben Ketai, who previously did the web series 30 Days of Night: Dust to Dust, has stepped in for Slade, and for the most part the visual style of the original seems to be intact. What do you think, could this be a DTV movie that won’t suck? 30 Days of Night: Dark Days hits DVD and Blu-ray on October 5th; check out the trailer after the jump.
