His thirst for life enchanted her.
His thirst for fame awoke her.
His thirst for power may kill us all.
Legendary Vampire Lestat de Lioncourt (Stuart Townsend) has risen from a decades-long slumber, determined to step out into the light. No longer content with being banished to the shadows, moving among mortals who never truly see him for what he is, Lestat has reinvented himself as the closest thing to a god on Earth: a rock star.
The intoxicating lure of his music has snaked its way around the globe, ultimately finding the ear of the slumbering ancient Queen Akasha (Aaliyah) in her crypt beneath the Arctic ice. Mother of all Vampires, Akasha has been resting for centuries, waiting for the right time to rise again and seize dominion over the world. Lestat's music is the revelation she has been waiting for, and she desires that he rule beside her.
But can Akasha be stopped? Her malevolent power may be too great for even the most ancient of the immortal Vampires to combat - she created them, and their survival depends on her own.
After all, Akasha is used to getting everything she wants... and all she wants is Hell on Earth.
Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in Association with Village Roadshow Pictures and NPV Entertainment, a Material Production, QUEEN OF THE DAMNED. Produced by Jorge Saralegui with the screenplay by Scott Abbott and Michael Petroni, QUEEN OF THE DAMNED is based on 'The Vampire Chronicles' by Anne Rice.
