I’m not completely sold on the upcoming vampire film, Dracula Untold. I can’t imagine not knowing the entire story as told by Bram Stoker, but I’m willing for Luke Evans to prove me wrong. In the following featurette, we get a closer look at Evans’ wife in the film, Sarah Gadon. She’s a prime motivator for the character to take a step into darkness and eventually become Dracula. Check out the footage below!

Here’s the synopsis for Dracula Untold:

Almost an entire century after the world’s first cinematic introduction to Dracula placed audiences under his haunting spell, the studio that pioneered the genre  reawakens one of legend’s most captivating figures in an action-adventure that heralds a pulse-pounding rebirth of the age of monsters.

Luke Evans (Fast & Furious 6, The Hobbit series) transforms from the cursed man history knows as Vlad the Impaler to an all-powerful creature of the night in Universal Pictures’ Dracula Untold, the origin story of the alluring immortal we have come to fear as the sun sets: Dracula.

Dracula Untold is directed by Gary Shore and is due out October 17th. The film stars: Luke Evans, Sarah Gadon, Diarmaid Murtagh, Dominic Cooper, and Samantha Barks.
