This one has all of the classic signs of a big fat bomb: Unknown cast? – Check. First time director? – Check. Multiple delays and release date changes? – Oh yeah. Three different names for the same film? – Yes!
So, no, it doesn’t look good. Do we really need another film about vampires? (A quick Wikipedia search tells us there have been at least 80 films based simply on Dracula – which doesn’t even count the other vampire movies like Twilight and 30 Days of Night.) We’ll have to wait until the fall to find out if Dracula Untold keeps its October 17 release date, and to see if it can convince audiences another depiction of Dracula is necessary.
