“DRACULA” Perched In New Poster for Icon’s Origin Story

This October, Universal brings a new iteration of arguably its most classic monster to life. Luke Evans stars in DRACULA UNTOLD, which aims to be an origin story of the Transylvanian prince who would become the iconic vampire, Count Dracula. Our first look at the film comes in the form of a poster that’s very much in line with modern tentpole filmmaking: brooding, grey and without much context, could very well be for a superhero. 

Is there a hero-ification of Dracula happening here? Previous reports and rumors suggested Universal was developing upcoming monster films as to share a universe, which Marvel has very much set a precedent for. That’s not even to mention how Batman-esque this whole pose is. Here’s hoping for a little more Gothic, and a little less Gotham.

DRACULA UNTOLD is in theaters October 17, 2014. Dominic Cooper, Sarah Gadon and Samantha Barks (as Russian folklore witch Baba Yaga!) star. Keep an eye on Fango for much more in the film in the coming months. [Yahoo!]
