Luke Evans brings Dracula to life in first Dracula Untold trailer
‘Dracula the misunderstood prince,’ that isn’t the title of the new Luke Evans’ film featuring the notorious vampire; but it is the basic plot of the project. This installment from Universal Pictures will be an origin story for Dracula, though there is nothing origin-al about the premise. Following a slew of one-off films and a failed TV show on NBC, the Universal is hoping to create something new for fans of the genre, revolving around the popular horror-icon.
The film is called “Dracula Untold” and the first trailer for the film was finally released this afternoon as we head into another summer box-office weekend. Vlad the Impaler wasn’t always immortal, and this film will feature a more romantic telling of the husband, his wife and his son. Luke Evans (Fast & Furious 6, Immortals) stars in Dracula Untold, Gary Shore directs and Michael De Luca produces the epic action-adventure that co-stars Sarah Gadon, Dominic Cooper, Diarmaid Murtagh and Samantha Barks.
The film is scheduled to premiere just in time for your Halloween needs on October 17, 2014.
