Here’s a nice little inside look at Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant. This featurette focuses on the main character Darren and his progression in becoming a vampire.
This movie is an adaption of the popular series of books by Darren Shan (who actually appears in the movie as a teenager) and Universal are hoping this is the start of new franchise which is aimed at teens. With the current king of the franchise Harry Potter coming to the end of his time its not surprising Universal are trying to get the crown.
The Vampire’s Assistant will be in U.K cinema’s in 4 weeks time, October 23rd.
