Feast Your Eyes On This International DRACULA UNTOLD Trailer

Many Dracula films only provide a bat-morphing, blood-sucking monster with no glimpse at the man beneath, so hearing the words, “I want the power to destroy my enemies and save my family,” from the titular character is a bit startling. Legendary’s upcoming reboot Dracula Untold premieres October 17, 2014, and by the end of this new international trailer, you might just be rooting for the blood-eater too.

Dracula Untold retells the historical origin story of Dracula, specifically the reign of Vlad Dracula, a/k/a Vlad the Impaler, a Romanian prince who ruled the area from 1456-1462. Originally mythologized by Bram Stoker in his novel Dracula, the violent story of princes clashing through Turkish, Eastern European, and religious history all couched in the grandeur of the Holy Roman Empire continues to fascinate audiences, or we wouldn’t be getting new interpretations of it. It would seem we will see the softer side of the notoriously ruthless prince as he sacrifices his humanity to protect his beloved wife and child in the face of military aggression from Mehmed II, the Ottoman conquerer who figures in heavily to the historical story of Vlad the Impaler.

Luke Evans and Sarah Gadon will play Dracula and his wife, Morena, opposite Dominic Cooper as Mehmed II and Samantha Barks as Baba Yaga, a beautiful woman who becomes a powerful witch. Charles Dance also stars as Caligula, the Roman emperor-turned-vampire, who transforms Vlad into the creature of legend.

Dracula Untold is meant to relaunch the Universal Monster franchise so perhaps we can look forward to more darkly sympathetic action horror films in the years to come. Who would you most like to see on the big screen again? Tell us in the comments below.

  1. Five days later neither a response nor a working video. So this was a mere PR dump you truly gave a shit about?

  2. Romanian Sky says:

    The name is not Vlad Dracula, but Vlad Dracul. In Romanian Dracul means The Devil, whereas Dracula means nothing and it’s merely an invention of Bram Stocker.

    • nerfherder_6 says:

      Vlad Dracul was Vlad Dracula’s father. Dracul in the ancient tongue is “The Dragon” and “Dracula” roughly translated to “Son of the Dragon”. Also, Dracula’s formal nickname, so to speak, was Vlad Tepes. So in other words, the name was Vlad III, Vlad Dracula, and Vlad Tepes.

    • Dan says:

      I like how you just make shit up. Dracul means the dragon and ea means son so Draculea means son of the dragon.

  3. Sir_Alx says:

    The video has been removed? meh.

  4. It’s probably better that I can’t watch the trailer, since I hate this concept so much.  This is NOT Dracula…why even call it that?

    • Anastas says:

      Actually, Vlad Cepes, a/k/a Vlad Dracul or Dracula was the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s novel, tardcake. So they kind of mixed both things up, the inspiration and the creation, which is amazing and will undoubtedly be interesting. If you were as half as nerdy as you pretend to be, you would know that. Unfortunately, you are just another person pretending to be someone they aren’t and your comment makes you look like an absolute fool. Cheers

    Wheres the video?

  6. So you are doing the PR for your parent company (no disclosure, same as with Above/Below) and they aren’t even able to provide you a trailer that stays accessible? That deserves a spanking at the next company softball game.

  7. Absalom says:

    Does this have any relation to the movie Charlie Hunnam wanted to make?

  8. PAG says:

    This video has been removed by the user. Sorry about that.

  9. Ryan says:

    This reminds me of an NBC mini series thst came out many moons ago. Basically the same premise.
