In the late eighteenth century, the Kingdom of Dahomey, armed with wealth, political influence, and a ruthless army, flourished as one of Africa's most powerful states.

Gina Prince-Bythewood directs the historical epic inspired by true events. Co-starring Lashana Lynch, Hero Fiennes Tiffin, and Thuso Mbedu.
A sombre vampire mesmerises a young reporter with the story of his ghastly transformation from grieving aristocrat to immortal monster, beginning in 18th-century New Orleans with his first encounters with the charismatic and decadent bloodsucker Lestat. The two vamps remain deeply, if reluctantly, connected over the years, while becoming intimately involved with others of their kind.
