Luke Evans Tells Us Why ‘Dracula Untold’ Needed To Be Told Watch Luke Evans explain why his new Dracula movie, "Dracula Untold," was a story worth telling.

‘Dracula Untold’ Reviews: Does This Reboot Soar or Bore? “Dracula Untold” hits theaters this weekend, and if you thought it looked mediocre, the majority of critics who have seen it have confirmed your suspicions. The reboot of the classic Universal movie monster, this time played by Luke Evans (“The Hobbit”), has accumulated a rotten 28 percent approval rating from critics counted on Rotten Tomatoes.

'Dracula Untold' Clip Unleashes One Vampire Against an Army Luke Evans gets to show off his immense supernatural powers as a newborn vampire in the second clip for Dracula Untold. A castle is under attack by a very large army that Vlad Tepes takes on all by himself. Watch as Vlad utilizes his new found abilities in this origin tale that takes us back to the very beginning of the Count Dracula legacy.

Luke Evans Becomes a Monster in Extended 'Dracula Untold' TV Spot "I want the power to save my family." After a Japanese trailer just showed off more of the horror legend origin story that is Dracula Untold, an extended TV spot has arrived with some new footage as well. Luke Evans takes the title role which paints Dracula as a desperate man who wanted this dark power in order to save his family from tyranny, but ended up being persecuted as a monster when he was only trying to save his people. I'm still not completely sold on this, though I appreciate the efforts to make Dracula's powers more epic.

Screenwriters Matt Sazam and Burk Sharpless went back to Bram Stoker's original source material for “Dracula Untold,” directed by Gary Shore. In the first trailer for the origin film, Luke Evans explained to someone who looks far scarier than he does why he is pursuing the darkness. “Sometimes the world no longer needs a hero,” he said to the ghoulish figure.

"Sometimes the world needs a monster!" Vlad Tepes has been caught spilling the blood of an entire village, but explains away his behavior as necessary in a world where heroes no longer apply. The first clip from Dracula Untold finds Luke Evans making his case to a very angry Charles Dance as he defends his homeland from the evils of the world. Instead of being set free, Vlad comes face-to-face with what may be the world's first bloodsucking ghoul.

Luke Evans Fights an Army in Japanese Trailer for 'Dracula Untold' "I see the devil inside him!" Following the first trailer for the horror action adventure Dracula Untold not too long ago, a new trailer from Japan has surfaced, showing a bit more of the desperate transformation Luke Evans makes in order to save his family and people from a tyrannical ruler. There's a lot of the same beats from the first trailer here, but this time they don't shove the fact that this is Dracula down your throat until the title appears at the end (and it has a different title too).

The Crow
Last year at Comic-Con, Luke Evans was attached to a re-imagining of The Crow, and author James O’Barr signed posters with director F. Javier Gutierrez. We haven’t heard much about The Crow since then, and it’s already another Comic-Con. Luke Evans was on a panel for The Hobbit: The Battle Of the Five Armies, and after the press conference I asked him if he was still doing The Crow.


Luke Evans Says A ‘Dracula Untold’ Sequel Could Go Anywhere – After years of development on a Dracula origin story, known for a time as Dracula Year Zero, Universal Pictures and newcomer director Gary Shore are in the final stages of preparing, Dracula Untold, for an October 2014 release. For months, some skeptics had dismissed the project as a shallow cash grab (or at the very least a risky bet at the box office) – while other fans remained cautiously optimistic there might still be new storylines and ideas to explore within Dracula folklore and mythology. 14 weeks 1 day ago via jackiechan
