We finally have a first look at Robert Eggers' Nosferatu remake!

The Northman director's highly-anticipated remake of the classic vampire tale came very close to being shelved, but despite some major setbacks, the filmmaker forged ahead with his vision for the movie, and the first official still has now been released online via Empire Magazine.

The image spotlights Lilly-Rose Depp as Ellen Hutter, the wife of Nicholas Hoult’s estate agent Thomas, who has fallen under the spell of the titular vampire Count Orlok, played by Pennywise actor Bill Skarsgård.

“I’ll say that Bill has so transformed, I’m fearful that he might not get the credit that he deserves because he’s just… he’s not there,” Eggers tells the site.

Only the shadow of Orlock's hand appears in the still, but Eggers did give us some idea of what this new take on the bloodthirsty Count will look like.

“He felt like honouring who had come before him. It’s all very subtle. But I think the main thing is that he’s even more a folk vampire. In my opinion he looks like a dead Transylvanian nobleman, and in a way that we’ve never actually seen what an actual dead Transylvanian nobleman would look like and be dressed like.”

Eggers also made it very clear that Nosferatu will be a full-on horror movie (there were rumors that he planned to take the story in a more romantic/dramatic direction).

“Yeah, it’s a scary film. It’s a horror movie. It’s a Gothic horror movie,” he assures. “And I do think that there hasn’t been an old-school Gothic movie that’s actually scary in a while. And I think that the majority of audiences will find this one to be the case.”

Check out the image at the link below, and let us know what you think in the comments section.

The movie also stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Friedrich Harding, Emma Corrin as Anna Harding, Willem Dafoe as Professor Albin Eberhart Von Franz, Simon McBurney as Herr Knock, and Ralph Ineson as Dr. Wilhelm Sievers.

F.W. Murnau directed the original 1922 classic, while Werner Herzog helmed a rather bizarre 1979 remake. The story is loosely based on Bram Stoker's Dracula, but there are several key differences.

"Nosferatu tells a gothic tale of obsession between a haunted young woman in 19th century Germany and the ancient Transylvanian vampire who stalks her, bringing untold horror with him."

Nosferatu hasn't been given an exact release date, but should be with us at some point next year.

I hope it's good! It can be hard with a story that's been told so many times, but this could be special
Ryguy88 - 11/20/2023, 8:25 PM
@Izaizaiza - Eggers last 2 were great, I think this will be too
marvel72 - 11/20/2023, 9:29 PM
@Ryguy88 - Have you seen The Witch? That film is great.
CorndogBurglar - 11/20/2023, 11:28 PM
@Ryguy88 - Eggers has been making nothing but awesome movies.

The Witch. The Northman. The Lighthouse (which wasn't my cup of tea, but I can still recognize it as a great movie).

I can't wait for this, personally.
Izaizaiza - 11/21/2023, 10:38 AM
@Ryguy88 - Agreed
Ryguy88 - 11/21/2023, 1:58 PM
@CorndogBurglar - @Marvel72

I actually forgot about and havent seen The Northman, I was referring to just The Lighthouse and The Witch.

@ThorArms - Well, that IS his name.
BeNice123 - 11/20/2023, 3:44 PM
This could be something special if it is closely similar to the gery first one… cant wait…

"He felt like honouring who had come before him. It’s all very subtle. But I think the main thing is that he’s even more a folk vampire." -Robert Eggers

I don't know exactly how to read that. Does that indicate that we won't be getting the iconic bald head/frontal rats-teeth? We're gonna' have to wait and see. But, even if the vampire doesn't follow the iconic Nosferatu look per se, I trust Robert Egger's vision implicitly. He's an auteur that has earned it! 🤓👍🏻

Nice! We do need a good, scary vampire movie

@Spawnnn - HA!

The original and Herzog's remake are great. I'm sure Eggers is going to do the property justice.
soberchimera - 11/20/2023, 3:51 PM
It's amazing how unabashedly unashamed Hollywood is about nepotism. It's not something I'm going to lose sleep over, but is the lead actress in this because of her amazing performances in Yoga Hosers and The Idol, or because she's a certain someone's daughter?
ClintThaHamster - 11/20/2023, 4:12 PM
@soberchimera - I imagine there might have been some auditions involved. But, yes, I'm sure everyone's eager to have their movies associated with a bloated alcoholic has-been who's been box office poison for the better part of a decade.
HashTagSwagg - 11/20/2023, 4:14 PM
@soberchimera - Sometimes it pays off, not often but sometimes.
soberchimera - 11/20/2023, 4:14 PM
@ClintThaHamster - Did you detox from the internet during the Depp/Heard debacle? Nearly everyone online was on his side and he was vindicated, your personal thoughts on him aside, he's still well-beloved within Hollywood.
BigPhilbowski - 11/20/2023, 4:28 PM
@soberchimera - hardly vindicated. Both were proven to be serial abusers and pieces of shit
ClintThaHamster - 11/20/2023, 4:35 PM
@soberchimera - "Did you detox from the internet during the Depp/Heard debacle?"

Lord, I was trying.

"he's still well-beloved within Hollywood."

Time will tell. But, in as much as last year's trial was vindicating in any way, it only raises Depp the profile of "employable/insurable," but maybe not to the level of "Prestigious director risks tanking his latest film in an effort to curry favor."
soberchimera - 11/20/2023, 5:11 PM
@BigPhilbowski - They were both found guilty of defamation, not abuse. Depp was clearly the winner though as he was trying to prove he didn't assault Heard.
BigPhilbowski - 11/21/2023, 2:33 AM
@soberchimera - which he failed to do. And he's legally deemed an abuser by a court of law
soberchimera - 11/21/2023, 9:05 AM
@BigPhilbowski - He was found guilty of defamation, that's a completely separate crime from physical assault.

Depp's complaint:
Heard was found liable in all three matters of defamation raised. Depp was awarded $10 million (of the $50 million claim) in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages (reduced to $350,000 per state limit).

Heard's counterclaims:
Depp was found liable in one of three matters of defamation raised and Heard was awarded $2 million (of the $100 million claim) in compensatory damages and $0 in punitive damages.
BigPhilbowski - 11/21/2023, 10:18 AM
@soberchimera - thr US case was defamation yes. But the UK judge ruled him an abuser, which has never been overturned. And the evidence from the US case showed they were both abusive towards eachother. Both pieces of shit who should never work in a big movie again
soberchimera - 11/21/2023, 10:37 AM
@BigPhilbowski - The US case took place AFTER the UK one and legal experts thought he had a smaller chance of winning that one than the UK one, but he did anyway. IF it was so clear cut he was an abuser than he would've been found liable for abuse in that one also.
GhostDog - 11/20/2023, 3:51 PM
Wasn't feeling The Northman in some areas, but Eggers doesn't actually miss ever. Excited for this.
McMurdo - 11/20/2023, 7:35 PM
@GhostDog - Northman is his worst film and thats a solid worst film to have. I'm hopeful he nails this. The Lighthouse and Witch are great.
GhostDog - 11/20/2023, 7:38 PM
@McMurdo - yea for that to be your worst film is a flex
CorndogBurglar - 11/20/2023, 11:31 PM
@McMurdo - Even though I recognize that The Lighthouse is a great movie, it wasn't really my cup of tea.

However, The Witch and Northman were both awesome movies.
Cap1 - 11/20/2023, 3:59 PM
The majority of audience’s default expectation with Bill Skarsgard is a thin, pale, bald monster, so the unrecognisable thing doesn’t really work for him. But despite that, this movie is gonna rock
ModHaterSLADE - 11/20/2023, 4:04 PM
The Northman was badass with some great cinematography. I'm hyped for it.
grif - 11/20/2023, 4:06 PM
@ModHaterSLADE - its great
grif - 11/20/2023, 4:06 PM
universals 3rd vampire flop in 2 years
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 11/20/2023, 4:06 PM
Bill Skarsgård has been typecast as monsters with buck teeth.
garu - 11/20/2023, 4:12 PM
Robert Eggers is a beast, this will be interesting.
ClintThaHamster - 11/20/2023, 4:15 PM
Worth mentioning that Willem Dafoe also played Nosferatu actor Max Schreck in Shadow of the Vampire, a movie about the production of Murnau's original film.
bkmeijer1 - 11/20/2023, 5:03 PM
@ClintThaHamster - that movie had such a good take on going back to a classic movie. It's wasn't a remake or chronicling how a movie was made, but a perfect balance between the two
ClintThaHamster - 11/20/2023, 5:27 PM
@bkmeijer1 - I probably need to watch it again. Watching on a 17" CRT in the bedroom of a girl I had a crush on was . . . not conducive to retention, let's say.
bkmeijer1 - 11/21/2023, 1:25 AM
@ClintThaHamster - well, it does add to the experience I suppose
