Universal Pictures has released six photos from their upcoming vampire thriller Dracula Untold. I'm a big fan of vampire flicks. I grew up on these kinds of films and this is a very unique take on the legend that I've never seen before. Judging from the trailer that was released, it looks like the filmmakers pulled it off.
The movie has a great cast which includes Luke Evans, Sarah Gadon, Dominic Cooper, Zach McGowan, Samantha Barks, Thor Kristjansson and Art Parkinson.
Evans stars as Dracula and the movie tells 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."
The film hits theaters October 3, 2014.
