Blade: Trinity Adds Three Slices of StorytellingBlade Trinity poster

By Glenn Bossik

Writer/Director David Goyer transforms the story of Blade, a Marvel Comics character, into a multifaceted film in Blade: Trinity.

In this film, Blade (Wesley Snipes), a superhuman man, leads a group of vampire hunters known as the Nightstalkers in a life and death crusade against vampires led by a female vampire, Danica Talos (Parker Posey).

Danica resurrects the legendary, ancient vampire, Dracula, who is named Drake (Dominic Purcell) and battles against Blade.

David Goyer refers to Blade as an antihero. "He is a hero in spite of himself, but he's a conflicted hero and not even a particularly nice guy," says Goyer.

Blade faces three conflicts in his battle against the vampires. He must reluctantly accept help from the Nightstalkers, who are vampire hunters. He must fight the FBI, which has been alerted to his existence by the vampire leaders. And he must fight the vampires and the newly resurrected father of all vampires, Drake (Dracula).

As these three conflicts transpire, we learn that the vampire hunters have three leaders and the vampires have three leaders. Read More
