Oh, so you think you know the story of Dracula? Think again. The untold story of the king of all bloodsuckers is coming to cinemas with Luke Evans getting it done with the fangs on, and the first trailer arrived today for a movie that certainly isn't lacking in epic scope.
War, family, and loss are all part of the story in "Dracula Untold" which follows the mortal Vlad Tepes, who does whatever it takes to protect his son from an impending war. And that essentially means making a deal with the devil, drinking from a weird cup of undead sauce, and reluctantly developing a thirst for blood. Being a father isn't easy. With war in the background, yelling, and no shortage of CGI (at times this evokes "300," particularly with the battle sequence stuff), director Gary Shore is putting it all up there for his feature debut.
"Dracula Untold" arrives on October 17th. Watch below.
