Universal has released the first Dracula Untold trailer. The movie tells the origins of the man who would become the infamous vampire. This trailer goes beyond the scant logline, and explains that Dracula started out as a good guy, but in order to protect his family, he had to become the bloodsucking bad guy we all know today. It looks more interesting than I thought it would be, and I really like the costumes. At the very least, there seems to be some potential for a good story rather than just pretty visual effects and cashing in on the brand.
Hit the jump to check out the Dracula Untold trailer plus five new images. The film opens October 17th, and stars Luke Evans, Sarah Gadon, Diarmaid Murtagh, and Dominic Cooper.
