Wild New Photos for Dario Argento's 'Dracula 3D' with Rutger Hauer
What the f--? A gigantic new batch of photos from Dario Argento's upcoming Dracula 3D recently showed up on the film's official website (via STYD) and they're frickin' crazy weird, you must take a look no matter what. We've been hearing about this film for a while, but now finally have a first look, and if you're really into this, there's a behind-the-scenes video on the site, too. The film stars Thomas Kretschmann as Dracula, Rutger Hauer as "Abraham Van Helsing", and Dario's daughter Asia Argento as Lucy. You can see all three of them in these photos, but be warned, a few of these are borderline NSFW. Otherwise, enjoy!
These are only a small sample, you can find the entire gallery of all 37 photos online here. Dario Argento's Dracula 3D was originally announced as "faithful translation of the Bram Stoker novel" that the Italian horror master would shoot in 3D. In addition to Kretschmann and Hauer, this also stars Marta Gastini, Unax Ugalde and Miriam Giovanelli. The Film Export Group is distributing it worldwide, but as far as we know, there isn't a US release date yet or any information on when we'll even be seeing this Stateside. I'm definitely curious based on the crazy glimpse we got, I just hope this actually turns out good. Interested?

I would like this without the 3d please.

Personally, they can hold the 3d on everything.

im usually a strong anti-3D audience member, but something inside me really wants to see what Argento can do with the 3D style.

I wasn't interested until i saw the chick with no pants. Before that, based on the backgrounds, it looks like a made for tv movie.

I hope Dario can still make a decent movie...

I doubt Argento really "directs" anymore.

Argento is a legend, but these do not fill me with hope. Pics four and five could be from an especially bloody episode of Monty Python or something; they seem really artificially lit and 'stagey' to me. Almost similar to Dogville or the like.

Dracula from the film Buffy the Vampire Slayer returns! Rutger Hauer is pretty good at it 🙂

Dario Argento is a crazy mofo. My hopes aren't set too high but these photos have a cool retro feel and I too am curious of what he'll do with 3-D. Also, that girl has a pretty nice butt. Classic.

Is it filmed on a vhs camera? Looks a bit cheap, but if the acting is good then... wait what am I talking about, it's a vampire film in 3d, with nudie women in it. I think it will be okay when they un-3d on dvd or tv.

Fuck yeah! Argento taking on Dracula, hopefully turns out better than it looks.
