NOSFERATU: First Trailer For Robert Eggers' Remake Releases This Weekend... But Only In Theaters!

After wowing attendees at CinemaCon earlier this year, the first trailer for Robert Eggers' highly-anticipated remake of Nosferatu finally releases this weekend - in theaters ahead of The Bikeriders!

Horror fans have been wondering when they'd get to sink their teeth into the long-awaited first trailer for Robert Eggers' Nosferatu remake ever since it screened at CinemaCon back in April, and we finally have an update on when we can expect to see it for ourselves.

The good news is, the trailer is releasing this weekend. The bad news? You'll have to go to your local theater to see it!

Reports are coming on that the first trailer for Nosferatu will screen ahead of Focus Features' The Bikeriders when it hits theaters this Friday. There's a chance the teaser will be released online shortly after (the studio would be smart to do so unless they want leaked versions all over the internet), but we're still waiting on an official update. 

If it's the same (or a similar) trailer to the one that debuted at CinemaCon, the below description will give you some idea of what to expect.

The footage begins with Lily-Rose Depp's Ellen Sutter praying by candlelight. “Come to me, come to me, hear my call,” she intones before a hand reaches out to grab her neck.

From there, we see moody shots of wintery, lamp-lit streets, rats scurrying across cobblestones, frightened villagers with wooden stakes at the ready, and - since it wouldn't be a vampire movie without it - plenty of gushing blood.

Bill Skarsgård's titular undead nobleman, Count Orlok, is only briefly glimpsed as he hunches over to drain an unfortunate victim, but is said to be a chilling sight to behold.

You can check out some reactions below.

F.W. Murnau directed the original 1922 classic, while Werner Herzog helmed a rather bizarre 1979 remake. The story is loosely based on 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 was recently given an official release date, and will arrive on Christmas Day, 2024.

Looking forward to this very much. The wife and I rewatch The Witch maybe once a year.

@VoiceofReason - For me personally, THE WITCH is mandatory viewing every October. 🤓

Just checked my personal itinerary for the weekend and wouldn't you know it; I do not have any plans to buy a ticket for "THE BIKERIDERS" just to view a teaser-trailer for the movie that I actually want to see. Hopefully, there will be plenty of phone captures popping-up over various sites to satiate the curiosity and anticipation of us horror fans! 🤓 A NOSFERATU remake by Eggers has been rumored since THE WITCH way back in 2015. We've waited long enough. 🤨

I'm incredibly excited. Love Eggers at his best (felt the Northman was underwhelming, but that seemed kind of a halfhearted attempt at a studio film) and this has been a passion project of his forever. The Herzog Nosferatu is hard to beat, but this is clearly a more straight-up horror take, so I welcome it. I was also already planning to see The Bikeriders!

I'm excited to see the Bikeriders, I like original movies! I hope they release this year 3 months from now. Austin Butler gives me old school movie vibes, like a young Robert Redford. Hollywood has a handful of up and coming stars that will ensure box office draws for decades to come

*keep the trailer off online, make these scmhucks go see a real movie for once. Or buy the ticket and leave like they did the SW episode one trailer before Meet Joe Black lol

@bobevanz - What do you think this is? 1998??? Tell you what Bobbie, close your eyes, stick your fingers in your ears and hum the National Anthem and the rest of us normal people living in 2024 will fish for the trailer online this weekend. 😄

This is an old school approach and I like it. I miss that anticipation of seeing a trailer for the first time in a theater setting. I remember seeing the Spider-Man 3 teaser for the first time in front of Superman Returns and TDKR in front of Harry Potter.

Unfortunately it doesn't work too well here because I doubt many people, including myself, have any desire to see The Bikeriders in theaters. They should have attached it to Furiosa or waited until Deadpool & Wolverine.
