First ‘Dracula Untold’ poster stars Luke Evans as Vlad, with sword

“Brooding” may be the best way to describe the first poster’s depiciton of Luke Evans as Vlad in a Dracula origin story: Dracula: Untold.

This is the first look for fans at Evans in the latest Dracula incarnation, see to transform Vlad III Tepes into the iconic character. Evans is popular from roles in The Raven, The Three Musketeers, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Clash of the Titans and Fast and Furious 6.

“They’re big shoes to fill, I’m very aware of that. But what’s interesting about this portrayal is it’s as much about the historical figure that inspires the literary figure as it is about Dracula,” Evans recently said of his role as Dracula.

And so we start back in Vlad Tepes’ life in the 1400s about his journey and his human experience, and what changes his life and how he becomes this famous vampire.

“So it’s a story people are not expecting and it’s not essentially horror, it’s more based on the human journey as much as it is about the vampire.”

Evans will follow his portrayal of the Prince of Darkness with the reboot of The Crow – more HERE


Dracula Untold also stars Sarah Gadon, Dominic Cooper, Samantha Barks, Charlie Cox and opens in theaters October 17, 2014.
