Universal Pictures dates Luke Evans, Sarah Gadon film ‘Dracula Untold’ for IMAX in October
Horror fans will get a remastered IMAX experience when they visit the box-office for the Legendary Pictures’ ‘Dracula Untold,’ the origin story of the man who became Dracula, starring Luke Evans (Fast & Furious 6, Immortals). The film will be digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX format and released into IMAX theatres internationally starting Oct. 2 and in North America beginning Oct. 17.
Gary Shore directs and Michael De Luca produces this epic action-adventure that co-stars Sarah Gadon, Dominic Cooper, Diarmaid Murtagh and Samantha Barks.
“Dracula is perhaps the most iconic horror story ever told, and this new twist on this classic tale is sure to appeal to IMAX audiences around the world,” said Greg Foster, CEO of IMAX Entertainment and Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. “We’re excited to have the opportunity to once again partner with the terrific team at Universal and our long time collaborators at Legendary as we present this exciting film in IMAX.”
The IMAX release of Dracula Untold will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience with proprietary IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) technology.
If you haven’t heard of this film, you’re not alone. The project has almost no presence online and even IMDB has barely any input on the project.
