Watch: Luke Evans Turns to Darkness in First 'Dracula Untold' Trailer

"Sometimes the world doesn't need another hero. Sometimes what it needs, is a monster." In what seems to be a mesh of Snow White and the Huntsman and Underworld, the first trailer for Dracula Untold has arrived, and it doesn't look half-bad. Luke Evans plays a desperate man who must turn to a dark power in order to save his people and avenge his family. There are some cool uses of Dracula's powers, especially at the end of the trailer. However, this might not be official, since it flashes the title at the beginning and the end for some reason. But that cover of "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" by Lorde works really well.
As we expected, this is not the official trailer. Stay tuned for the release sometime soon.
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.

Fucking piss's me off with this bullshit copyright law crap.How the hell is this copyrighting at all.There showing off your films to get views and maybe people will enjoy the trailer and want to then go see the film.so if anything this is a big loss for the company universal.

Looks interesting, though the music reminds of the Tweenlight rubbish.
