Dracula Untold
“Dracula Begins” was apparently taken so Universal Pictures decided to name its new “how Dracula got his groove” film, “Dracula Untold.” It’s the untold story, get it? Maybe it’s like a prequel to the days when he was a young doctor and then came across some Nosferatu who bit him and yadda, yadda, yadda. Pardon our cynicism, but most prequel like “this is how it actually happened” stories tend to be a little dull, but here’s to hoping I guess. The cast is at least decent.

Fifty Shades Of Grey, First Look
There is probably an easy joke here about how good things come (ha) to those who wait, and it's never good to rush into bed or something, but it looks like Universal and Focus Features have decided to give "Fifty Shades Of Grey" the space it needs to do it right (sorry). So for those of you who were looking to go the sex room of your local multiplex next year, you'll have to hold on just a bit longer (hardy har har).

Regardless of personal tastes and quality of the product, vampires went through a pretty hot phase for a while there. However, time tends to snuff the flames of fads and one has to wonder if Universal is coming too late to the vampire party with its newest take on the Dracula mythos. This particular project has been kicking around for a few years now, but it finally built up some steam a couple of months ago when Luke Evans landed the role of "Dracula" himself. Now the production has sunk its teeth into a few more notable stars.

Despite the festering wound that was “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” the film’s two leads haven’t taken much of a hit as both have landed some big roles.

So, is Luke Evans on the cusp of breaking out on the big screen? Lord knows the actor has been paying his dues. From "Clash Of The Titans" to "Immortals" to "Robin Hood" to "The Three Musketeers," Evans has plenty of history in franchises...that never quite took off. But 2013 seems to be the year where he poised to break the spell. He'll play Bard The Bowman in "The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug," and next month he gets to bite into a juicy bad guy role in "Fast & Furious 6." And clearly, Universal like what they see.

Universal Revives ‘Dracula Year Zero’ Without Sam Worthington & Alex Proyas; Gary Shore To Direct

With movie projects dying out left and right, it only makes sense that some aborted ideas would be resurrected. Hence, "Dracula Year Zero," a dopily titled period piece about Prince Vlad, the noble-but-doomed hero who later became known as Vlad the Impaler, and later Blacula Dracula. Originally, Sam Worthington was set to star for director Alex Proyas. However, the "Dark City" helmer abandoned the film to take on the now-dead "Paradise Lost," ostensibly taking Worthington with him, and setting the stage for newbie director Gary Shore to adopt the project from a new script by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless.
