Tag Archives: Dracula Untold
Four new films opened in wide release on Thursday night, but they couldn’t make Gone Girl disappear from the top of the box-office charts.
The top new release of the weekend is the PG-13-rated movie Dracula Untold, which got the brief taste of glory.
Last week, I told you that Fox’s Gone Girl and The Conjuring spin-off Annabelle were definitely worth your time and money. Both new films far surpassed my expectations, and helped give the box office a much-needed boost.
The latest feature from director David Fincher opened with a superb $38 million, while low budget Annabelle debuted closely behind Gone Girl ($61M budget) with a terrific $37.2 million.
UPDATE: A new extended TV spot for Gary Shore’s upcoming take on the origins of the world’s most famous vampire has been released by Legendary and Universal, which you can watch below.
The first clip from Dracula Untold finds Luke Evans, as Vlad Tepes, while spars with Charles Dance, the Roman emperor turned vampire Caligula.
Actually, the first international trailer does highlight a few different elements of the narrative not included in the domestic theatrical preview, namely the peace in Vlad Tepes (Luke Evans) homeland Transylvania and how Sultan Mehmed II (Dominic Cooper) threatens to destroy it.
UPDATE: In addition to the first Dracula Untold trailer, Universal has released five new images. Check them below.
Following the first international poster, a domestic version has also debuted last week and now the first trailer for Dracula Untold has been released, starring Luke Evans, Sarah Gadon, Dominic Cooper.
Originally titled Dracula: Year Zero, Universal greenlit a “new” take on the story of the age-old creature in the vein of the nice Twilight Vampires.
UPDATE: Following the international poster, Universal Pictures has debuted the domestic one-sheet, which looks more like ” Dracula Begins” than Dracula Untold.
Universal Pictures have released the first official poster for Irish filmmaker Gary Shore‘s feature debut Dracula Untold, starring Luke Evans, Sarah Gadon, Dominic Cooper, Diarmaid Murtagh and Samantha Barks.
