The Last Voyage of the Demeter: Fangoria offers a good look at Javier Botet’s Dracula

The latest issue of Fangoria magazine gives a good look at the version of Dracula played by Javier Botet in The Last Voyage of the Demeter

Universal Pictures will be giving the horror film The Last Voyage of the Demeter, which is based on a single chapter, the Captain’s Log, from Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel Dracula, a theatrical release on August 11th. If you don’t want to wait another month to get a good look at the version of Dracula that Javier Botet of the It films plays in the movie, all you have to do is take a look at the cover for the new issue of Fangoria magazine! Botet’s Dracula is featured on the cover in all his glory, and you can check it out at the bottom of this article.

Escaping development hell twenty years after the script was first written (Bragi F. Schut, Stefan Ruzowitzky, and Zak Olkewicz all receive writing credits on the finished film), The Last Voyage of the Demeter tells the 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. 

The film stars Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton) as Clemens, a doctor who joins the Demeter crew; Aisling Franciosi (The Nightingale) as an unwitting stowaway; Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones) as the ship’s captain; and David Dastmalchian (the Ant-Man franchise) as the Demeter’s first mate. Also in the cast are Jon Jon Briones (American Horror Story), Stefan Kapicic (Deadpool films), Nikolai Nikolaeff (Stranger Things), and the aforementioned Javier Botet.

Directed by André Øvredal, The Last Voyage of the Demeter is coming to us from DreamWorks Pictures. The project was produced by Brad Fischer and Mike Medavoy and Arnold Messer for Phoenix Pictures. Matthew Hirsch serves as executive producer.
