Dracula Untold: Posters & First Photo Tease Batty Story

by at .  Updated at . Comments

You think you know the story of Dracula? Think again! Universal Pictures has released the first two posters from Dracula Untold as well as our first still of star Luke Evans as the titular character.

Universal is returning to its heyday as the studio that put out the original movie monsters, from Frankenstein to Wolfman to our favorite night crawler -- Count Dracula.

The film stars Luke Evans as Dracula and is a period piece that promises an origins story that was only teased in previous Dracula movies -- even Bram Stoker's Dracula!  

Evans plays Prince Vlad (as those who know… Dracula was first known as Vlad the Impaler), and he is a man who will go to the ends of the earth to protect his people and his family. But, unfortunately, he takes it too far when he makes a dark pact to secure the peace. What it means is he will live forever -- as a vampire.

Look for Dracula Untold in theaters October 17 (in time for Halloween!). It also stars Need for Speed star Dominic Cooper.
