Aside from hearing that ‘Dracula Untold‘ was going to be a family friendly film, we haven’t heard much about the movie, though now we’ve got a still, a poster, and details to share with you as well! While an origin story of Dracula sounds like the very last thing that you would expect to see Universal Pictures put together, it stars a pretty Luke Evans (‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug‘, ‘The Raven’), Sarah Gadon (‘Antiviral’, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘), Dominic Cooper (‘Captain America: The First Avenger‘, ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter‘) and Charlie Cox (‘Daredevil‘,’Stardust’) in lead roles in the film.
In this film, we’re clearly getting an origin story as Evans play Prince Vlad who, pictured below, is trying to protect those that he loves. In doing so he makes a deal with supernatural sources which slowly leads him to becoming the vampire known as Dracula. Clearly in this still below, he is still quite human.
Now in a much more impressive image we see this absolutely stunning movie poster. This is a real treat, a poster that really draws your attention to the movie. Honestly it has made me want to actually check the film out even though I feel that it might be overselling what we’ll end up on screen. Still it looks much closer to what I tend to imagine when I think of Dracula pre-curse.
So the look of Dracula himself is quite impressive in the film’s first poster. For a family film, they did an amazing job at crafting his armor and I love the transition of his cape though I’m pretty sure that is only for effect in this promotion.
Are you looking forward to this take on Dracula? Do you think it’ll resonate with audiences better than the NBC show did?
