Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Michael Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.
About the filmmaker:
A Swedish director of Chilean origin, Daniel Espinosa graduated from the Danish Film School in Copenhagen and made his directorial debut with the short film Bokseren (2003). Adept at crafting compelling thrillers, he was named one of Variety’s “10 Directors to Watch” in 2010 for Easy Money, one of the most popular films in Sweden that year. He directed the feature films Safe House (2012) and Child 44 (2015), and the World Premiere of his sci-fi thriller Life (2017) was selected as the Closing Night Film at the SXSW Film Festival.
Espinosa directed Academy Award-winner Jared Leto in Morbius, a film based on the Marvel Comics character, with nods to Bram Stoker’s novel and F.W. Murnau’s silent film Nosferatu from screenwriters Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless.See more upcoming films
