This fall we’re getting the untold origin story of Dracula, in which he stands on rooftops brooding, wearing a cape, and surrounded by bats. Sounds totally original.
Heres the poster thanks to ComingSoon:
That’s actually a pretty cool poster even if it does evoke some pretty familiar imagery. The film stars Luke Evans, who you probably have seen but don’t remember because he’s been in tons of movies (Furious 6, The Raven, Immortals, Clash of the Titans, Three Musketeers) but hasn’t managed to transition from “that guy you saw in that movie” to “I’ve always liked Luke Evans” yet.
The story is that young Prince Vlad (Evans) is trying to protect his family and makes a dark deal (Faustian perhaps?) to do so which turns him into a monster. Pretty standard bad guy origin story stuff but I like Evans so hopefully this is good.
Dracula: Untold is out 17th October.
