Let’s be real, it was only a matter of time until this film happened. With vampires being all the rage in young adult storytelling, and superhero origin films becoming a standard for each Hollywood studio, it was only a matter of time before somebody sat down and realized how lucrative it could be if they combined a vampire film featuring the most well-known vampire of all with a superhero origin story. I like to think it happened in a similar manner when on 30 Rock Tracy Jordan decided to combine porn and video games to make a pornographic video game that would sell billions.
The plot of Dracula Untold finds the man before he’s a vampire, as he has to make a choice to get the power he needs to defend his family. The power allows him to form bats into a fist of God. Dracula isn’t just a vampire in this film, he’s a god-damn superhero. Just look at the posters we have below, they scream medieval Batman. All joking aside, the film has got a capable cast with Luke Evans and Dominic Cooper and the visuals look more impressive than I would have anticipated.
Directed by newcomer Gary Shore, Dracula Untold comes out October 17th, starring Luke Evans, Sarah Gadon and Dominic Cooper. Check out the trailer and (Medieval Batman) posters below.
