Think you know the real story of Dracula? Think again.
The trailer for Universal’s Dracula Untold has arrived and it looks like the real deal origins story for the world’s first true vampire. And the fact that it is from the studio that created the greatest classic monster movies of all time, well, that has us pretty darn excited.
Luke Evans (who you can see when you watch Fast and the Furious 6 online) stars as Vlad, and he’s portrayed as a man who had little choice but to become the iconic being who lives to walk the night and feast on humans’ blood.
Evans’ Vlad is just trying to save his family, his people and his legacy. And when trouble strikes from all corners, he has little choice but to make a deal with some dark souls and become the man who we know as Dracula.
Dracula Untold hits theaters October 17 and also features Sarah Gadon, Diarmaid Murtagh and Dominic Cooper. Oh, and don't you love the tease of the theme song, Tears for Fears' Everybody Wants to Rule the World, sung by Lorde!
