‘Dracula Untold’ clips preview Luke Evans, Vlad the Impaler becoming the vampire

Universal begins their reboot of their Famous Monsters franchise with Dracula Untold. Luke Evans stars as the title character, the renown Dracula in an origin story following the conquest, fall of Vlad the Impaler and his transformation into the notorious vampire.

In the clips below fans can see the tension which serve as part of the back story leading to the massive battle revealed in previous footage. More interesting, Evans’ Vlad reveals his new limitation – sunlight.

The 2016 relaunch of The Mummy will serve as the beginning of the “shared universe” so an ageless Dracula sequel can pick up anywhere the studio chooses.

“If you’re going to start a story anyway you gotta start at the beginning and so you could go anywhere with Dracula right now. After this movie finishes the story finishes in a very, it’s like an open book where can he go. He’s immortal, so it could go anywhere. There’s a lot of discussions about that so it’s very exciting and I’m very much involved in the whole thing…,” Evans said to Screen Rant in a new interview.

“Sometimes the world doesn’t need another hero. Sometimes what it needs is a monster,” says the boy in the trailer.

The film is directed by Gary Shore and co-starring Sarah Gadon (as Vlad’s wife Mirena), Dominic Cooper (as Sultan Mehmed), Samantha Barks (as the witch Baba Yaga), Art Parkinson (as Vlad’s son Ingeras), and Charles Dance (as the ancient evil force) along with Charlie Cox, Will Houston, Ferdinand Kingsley, Noah Huntley, Dilan Gwyn, Zach McGowan, Ronan Vibert, Diarmaid Murtagh, Thor Kristjansson, and Joseph Long.

Dracula Untold opens in theaters on Oct. 10, 2014.
