As its theater opening is nearing, the movie that people can look forward to when they wish to find the origins for vampire mythology, “Dracula Untold” finally released its international trailer.
The subject of supernaturalism is a definite classic when it comes to movie mediums. The days of the “Twilight” saga has reached its end; and it’s time to relive the good, old, dark and brooding blood-sucking days with “Dracula Untold.”
This reboot of the classic and original blood-sucking monster is dedicated to reveal the real story with how such entities came into being. In the recent post of Screen Rant, “Dracula Untold” is the big screen recreation of Dracula’s untold and dark past. True enough, we’ve only just seen quick glimpses of his past and without knowing how it unfolded with distinctive efficiency. For this Dracula re-envisioning, we’ll see the details of his becoming — how he became the dark superhero — along with the history that caused him to turn to the dark side out of sheer desperation.
In a script created by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, the movie takes place during the 15th century wherein Vlad (Luke Evans) and his homeland face a threat with the coming invasion of the Ottoman Empire headed by Sultan Mehmed II (Dominic Cooper). Desperate to find an effective counterattack for this upcoming and undefeated force, he finds himself surrendering his soul to a Faustian bargain with the ancient evil played by Charles Dance.
“Dracula Untold” gives the magnified version and back story of Vlad Tepes, who is also known as Vlad the Impaler. His story is where the true origin of Dracula was based on in the novel by Bram Stoker, and this is according to Alissa Philips, the movie’s producer. The movie is then keen on following the basics in delivering a different take which tackles his early years. With that, the creators wish to avoid the failure of having to create a movie that will undermine the people’s expectations, judging on how NBC’s “Dracula” only lasted for one season, and then it got chopped off the show list for its low ratings and its heavy dose of negative critical responses.

The premiere of “Dracula Untold” actually jump-starts Universal Picture’s endeavor to bring back to life the classic monsters that began the age of the supernatural. The likes of Frankenstein, the Invisible Man, the Mummy, Creature from the Black Lagoon and so on. It is set to hit the theaters just in time for the eerie holiday — the Halloween of Oct.17, 2014.
That concludes the scoop for the international trailer of “Dracula Untold.” Stay tuned on Movie News Guide (MNG) for more updates about the entertainment world.
