IF BLOOD draining vampires is your thing or your softer side craves something a little more light hearted, tomorrow's (Fri) film releases should please.

Vampires are taking over the world and are faced with the challenge of maintaining the dwindling supply of blood to ensure their survival.

Daybreakers is the spooky thriller, certificate 15, starring Ethan Hawke of Great Expectations and Training Day fame.

The upcoming sci-fi vampire film is written and directed by twin brothers Peter and Michael Spierig.

In the year 2019 a plague has transformed almost every human into blood sucking vampires.

The immortal beasts, who possess similar physical appearances to normal people, must work out how to keep a supply of blood by harvesting and farming the remaining humans.

With only a few beings left to provide blood for the starving population of vampires, extinction is a real risk for the new dominant species of humanity.

The movie, filmed in Australia, also stars Spider Man actor Willem Dafoe and Sam Neill of Jurassic Park fame.

Also out tomorrow is a romantic comedy filled with A-list stars.

It's Complicated (15) covers love, divorce and everything in between and features The Devil Wears Prada and Mamma Mia! actress Meryl Streep as Jane.

As a divorced mum-of-three grown up kids she finds her once amicable relationship with her ex-husband, attorney Jake (Alec Baldwin) slowly changing.

Caught in the middle of their renewed romance is Adam (Steve Martin), a smitten architect hired to modify Jane's kitchen.

What will Jane do? Move on with her life with her ex-flame or pursue pastures new?

The film is written and directed by Nancy Meyers, who also wrote The Holiday and produced What Women Want.

Catch both movies at Weston Odeon from tomorrow.
