Dracula Untold

Meet Vlad the Impaler. Formerly known as Dracula Year Zero, we finally have our first look at what's now known as Dracula Untold, one of a few Dracula/Vlad movies in the works (the others being Eli Roth's Harker and The Last Voyage of the Demeter). Welsh actor Luke Evans stars in this movie as Vlad Tepes (seen above), better known in history as Vlad the Impaler, in the very dark story of how he becomes Dracula. I talked with Luke about this movie in my interview with him last year, as he had just finished filming, now we finally get a first look in the form of a poster + photo. Solid design, I like the armor, curious to see more.

Dracula Untold is directed by newcomer Gary Shore, making his feature debut after a 2005 horror short film titled The Draft. The story follows real-life historical figure Prince Vlad of Transylvania, known as the inspiration for Dracula, as his wife and child find themselves in danger from a despicable sultan. He risks his very soul to save them. Evans explained in our interview: "We're back in the 1400's when you meet this man who was the king of his land who had reigned peacefully for 10 years... It's sort of an origin story, but it's really the story of Vlad the Impaler and what he does and the things that happen to him in his life that show you how Dracula is born." Dracula Untold arrives in US theaters starting on October 17th this year.

    Poster is pretty good, that tagline feels extremely tired.
  • Guest_of_Honor
    It sucks that the tagline "The Legend is Born" has been exhumed so many times.
  • Cappy Tally

    What a load of bull****! How he reignd 10 years peacefully??? Everybody who know the true vlad from history books knows he was a sadistic dictator of unprecedented ferocity! As a young child he impaled, cats, dogs and frogs and learned from it! The Turks where very afraid of him because he impaled 1000 humans in one day and he displayed them like a Forrest of trees... What a load of bull**** hahahahaha Hollywood!
