The big video of the day on YouTube is the release of the movie trailer for Dracula Untold. The movie is being billed as “the origins of Dracula” and stars Luke Evans (The Immortals, The Raven, Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug) in the lead role. The movie looks promising, despite a number of initial problems, including a change in the lead role (Sam Worthington was originally cast in the lead). Dracula Untold was filmed in Northern Ireland and is scheduled to be released in the United States on October 17, 2014. It is being directed by Gary Shore.
Dracula Untold has been in production, in various forms, since 2007! It was originally supposed to be Dracula: Year One, but the production budget was too high and Universal Pictures backed out. In 2010, it was announced that Sam Worthington would play the lead role, however in 2012 he was replaced by Luke Evans. Filming didn’t start until August 2013.
With filming complete, Universal Pictures is now pushing Dracula Untold with quite an exciting trailer…
