Every bloodline has a beginning…
Universal Pictures just sent us a second one-sheet from Dracula Untold (formerly Dracula: Year Zero), the Gary Shore-directed version of Bram Stoker’s novella, in theaters October 17, 2013.
Starring Luke Evans, Sarah Gadon, Dominic Cooper, Zach McGowan, Samantha Barks, Thor Kristjansson and Art Parkinson, the film was shot in Belfast last year.
In the film, “Luke Evans is starring as the most famous of vampires in an origin story that sees a Transylvanian prince risk eternal damnation in order to save his wife and son from a Turkish horde. Barks will play a figure in Eastern European folk tales known as a baba yaga, a beautiful young woman who turns into a savage witch. Kristjansson will play Bright Eyes, an Eastern European taken as a slave as a young boy and now a vicious assassin in the Ottoman Army. Parkinson will play Dracula’s son, named Ingeras.“
The new poster reminds me of the work done for Warner Bros. Batman trilogy, although it works well for this as Dracula, too, is associated with bats.
