Watch the First Teaser for BBC’s New Dracula Series, from the Creators of Sherlock
Sign me up for ANYTHING from the creators of the amazingly entertaining Cumberbatch + Freeman Sherlock. We heard it first from Tor.com.
Action-nuns! Body horror! Dracula with a British (not Transylvanian) accent! Over the weekend, the BBC dropped the very first teaser for Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’ adaptation of Bram Stoker’s novel, and it (understandably) looks way darker than Sherlock.
The super-short clip is light on the dialog but stuffed with blink-and-you’ll-miss-it shots of all the spooky paraphernalia you’d expect from a Dracula adaptation (jugular-slitting nails, portentous crucifixes, wooden stakes–wielded by nuns, no less!), and then some. We also get a glimpse of a contortionist monster of some kind (could this be Dracula in hangry mode?), an uncomfortably long shot of someone’s extra-juicy wrist veins, and a good, hard look at the titular vampire count, played by Claes Bang.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
