Queen of the Damned (2002)

This is a solid movie. Vampire Lestat (Stuart Townsend) awakens after decades of sleep to the sound of a rock band, and instead of getting upset he decides to become their lead singer. The new band quickly becomes popular and Lestat arranges for a large concert in Death Valley. He challenges all of the other vampires to come out of hiding. Queen Akasha (Aaliyah) wants to partner with him so they can rule together. During a confrontation with the Ancient Vampires, Lestat pretends to obey her commands, but then joins in the attack against her.

The film is based on the third novel in Anne Rice's The Vampire Chronicles. Aaliyah Haughton was killed in an airplane crash six months before the release date.
