During a recent interview with THR, RenfieldNicholas Hoult stated that Nicolas Cage’s performance as Dracula is “very bizarre” yet “steeped in a lot of history”.

I love that people see what he’s done. It’s original, but it’s steeped in a lot of history, Dracula history and folklore. So it’s exciting, even if it’s a very bizarre, lofty tone for an action comedy. So I’m excited about it.

I don’t think there are two more iconic things than Dracula and Nic Cage. So, to put those together and be in scenes with him and just watch all the inspiration and all the things that he brings to the character, the fun of it, the dedication, his love of acting, I just loved every moment of it. As a person he is such a pure soul to deal with.


Meanwhile, Greta Gerwig promised that Ken’s viral skate outfit is just one of the movie’s “many extraordinary looks,” most of which have yet to leak online.

Well, I’m thrilled because that’s how I felt and how Margot felt, and I love that everyone shares that feeling. I’ll just say, it’s one of many extraordinary looks.
