Luke Evans sinks his teeth in first trailer for Dracula Untold

06.27.2014

Earlier this month we received a couple of posters for DRACULA UNTOLD that, admittedly, were not so bad. Origins on the famous character are about a dime a dozen, and while most of them weave a straightforward tale of horror written in blood, some of them attempt to humanize the character. It worked for Francis Ford Coppola, although this film is from newcomer Gary Shore. While the trailer was initially posted earlier this week, the studio requested it not be seen . . . until now.

Do the batdance here:

One can't help but be reminded of MALEFICENT when watching these trailers. The biggest gripe I've read of that movie is that they took too much of the villain out of her. They're not painting a villanious angle for Dracula in this film (at least judging from the trailer), so I'm curious to see what they'll bring to the table to keep DRACULA UNTOLD interesting. For you gaming fans, I think Castlevania: Lords of Shadow did a pretty awesome origin tale for everyone's favorite bloodsucker, so we'll see how this compares.

DRACULA UNTOLD, starring Luke Evans, Sarah Gadon, Diarmaid Murtagh, and Dominic Cooper, will hit theaters October 17, 2014.

I normally like Luke Evans but that looks horrible. I'm getting a Season Of The Witch / I, Frankenstein vibe over here.

Meh...I'll stick with Coppola's incarnation featuring the utterly brilliant and extraordinary performance Gary Oldman gave. That was by no means a perfect movie (I.e. Though I do like Keanu Reeves, I felt he was horribly miscast), but overall it was very well done. I literally didn't feel a single spark watching this trailer.

Yeah I can't say that looks too good. Also I found it really strange that they revealed the title only 10 seconds into the trailer, and then again at the end. Trailers haven't done that since the 70's.

The whole trailer...

...I thought why not just spend the money to make a Castlevania movie with Evans as Belmont? This movie looks like crap, by the way.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. If only the real Castlevania movie (whenever anyone would exhume it from development hell) would look like that, which I doubt it because video game adaptations must suck (no pun intended).

Looks like a whole bunch of revisionist horseshit. Vlad the Impaler as a loving family man and tragic hero? Fuck off, Universal and Legendary.

Awful

Looks truly awful. If you watched that and thought this looks good, you need to rethink your life.

Vlad looks blah. Feels a bunch like the Underworld prequel.

I think Universal / Legendary needed a couple of extra days to get the level of 'awful' just right.
