Check out Luke Evans as a bloodsucker in first posters for Dracula Untold

06.16.2014

We have been hearing about DRACULA UNTOLD for a while now and that it would be yet another origin tale about Bram Stoker's famous character. This time, we would be going back way before what has been seen on screen outside of the opening sequence to Francis Ford Coppola's film starring Gary Oldman. This time, it is hard to even tell if vampires will directly play into DRACULA UNTOLD.

The new posters for the film give us Luke Evans clad in armor with a long cape that appears to be made of bats. While it doesn't scream Dracula to me, it definitely looks like an alternate universe MEDIEVAL BATMAN which now I am very excited to see.

Luke Evans (FAST AND FURIOUS 6, IMMORTALS) stars in Dracula Untold, the origin story of the man who became Dracula. Gary Shore directs and Michael De Luca produces the epic action-adventure.

DRACULA UNTOLD has been bouncing around the release calendar for a while and without a major name I am not sure how well it will do when it finally hits screens. I will reserve judgement until I see some footage, but as cool as these posters are, they may be the most intriguing aspect of this project.

DRACULA UNTOLD co-stars Sarah Gadon, Diarmaid Murtagh, Dominic Cooper and will hit theaters on October 17, 2014.

One poster looks like Batman and another one looks like Spawn. This movie will flop.

Too bad no one has ever thought of or never really cared for a realistic adaptation of the actual Vlad Tepes. Reading his history, there were some interesting Game of Thrones-y elements in his life. LIke, did you guys know that he was basically the less lame/dickless version of Theon Greyjoy? Started out as a well treated political prisoner by the Turks along with his (handsome) brother, this Transylvanian prince rebelled against his captors while his brother sides with the Ottoman empire.

Started out as a well treated political prisoner by the Turks along with his (handsome) brother, this Transylvanian prince rebelled against his captors while his brother sides with the Ottoman empire. Vlad joined The Brotherhood of The Dragon (actually a Christian zealot organization) and started a long and bloody war against the Turks, which gained him the moniker Vlad The Impaler for his cruelty in battle. Over the course of this war he ruled Transylvania, deposed, then reinstated a few times in a power struggle against his brother Radu. His campaign halted when he ran out of money and betrayed by one of his allies. His body was believed to have never been found, but it's possible that the Turks may have something to do with it.

Those posters would have made awesome Dark Knight posters. Too bad they're for this.

Looking forward to this and am a big fan of Luke Evans and Dominic Cooper, but this will probably be in the same vein and quality as the Underworld films, Van Helsing, and I, Frankenstein. Films that I have and have not enjoyed. So hopefully it falls in one of better genre entries as of late.

Sarah Gadon: Its going to be a PG-13 film and it is more about the family than it is about sexual angst.

Art Director: "What do you want the posters for Dracula Untold to look like?"
Executive: "You know Batman Begins?"
Art Director: "Yeah."
Executive: "Make it look just like that, except with castles and shit."

These posters are ABSOLUTELY fantastic

But I don't like the actor and I'm sick of the whole origin/untold story/real life fairy tale kind of shit. I'm really sick of characters who aren't in-character because technically they haven't reached the point where we customarily know them. Not one of them has been interesting

This in particular is even more annoying because they're conflating a real life historical figure who had nothing to do with vampires with a CONSTANTLY mis-adapted story that has nothing to do with the historical figure.
