Luke Evans in Dracula Untold (2014) Movie Poster

Following up on yesterday’s new poster for Gary Shore’s “Dracula Untold” comes a second poster using similar motif — Luke Evans’ Vlad Tepes aka the man who would become Dracula having his cape turn into bats. It is, of course, very “Batman Begins”-ish, though I don’t suppose you can blame them for trying to strike the same kind of vibe. This is also one of those re-imagined origins story, though from the looks of it Vlad will be swinging more swords than biting into nubile young ladies’ necks. At least, in this installment. I’m sure they’re already thinking trilogy or franchise.

I’m very curious to see what Shore comes up with. For those who may be following his career, Shore shot a very cool futuristic Samurai short film called “Cup of Tears” a while back (check it out below). It was one of those “concept trailers” for a movie he hopes to one day make. And who knows, if “Dracula Untold” becomes a hit, he might just get his wish.

Until then, check out the latest poster for “Dracula Untold.” The movie stars Evans, along with Charlie Cox, Sarah Gadon, Dominic Cooper, Samantha Barks, and Zach McGowan.

Vlad goes bats this October 17th.

    I’m actually looking forward to this. I love different takes on the Dracula mythos especially the “Hellsing,” anime and “Dracula 2000.” I love Luke Evans and think he’ll own the role.
    Now, my critiques. I think htere should’ve been some impaled bodies. Sure it would make for a more grotesque picture, but he was Vlad the Impaler before the myth of Dracula existed. I love that they put that in the film for “Bram Stoker’s Dracula.” That armor he’s wearing with the dragon looks badass! Love it with the red accents. Looks a little Eastern influenced, almost like Chinese armor.
    And speaking of “Hellsing,” I’d love for a flick of that to get made. Benedict Cumberbatch for Alucard, Emily Blunt as Sir Integral Van Hellsing, Jason Statham as Walter C Dornez, and Gerard Butler as Alexander Anderson. There are plenty of others but I’d rather someone with a good working knowledge of British actors to help figure the cast out.
