‘Dracula Untold’ Gets an IMAX Release This October

IMAX Corporation and Universal Pictures, a division of Comcast Corp., and Legendary Pictures today announced that Dracula Untold, the origin story of the man who became Dracula, starring Luke Evans (Fast & Furious 6, Immortals), will be digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX format and released into IMAX theaters internationally starting Oct. 2 and in North America beginning Oct. 17.

Gary Shore directs and Michael De Luca produces this epic action-adventure that co-stars Sarah Gadon, Dominic Cooper, Diarmaid Murtagh and Samantha Barks.

Greg Foster, CEO of IMAX Entertainment and Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp, had this to say in a statement.

"Dracula is perhaps the most iconic horror story ever told, and this new twist on this classic tale is sure to appeal to IMAX audiences around the world. We're excited to have the opportunity to once again partner with the terrific team at Universal and our long time collaborators at Legendary as we present this exciting film in IMAX."

The IMAX release of Dracula Untold will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience with proprietary IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

Dracula Untold was released October 10th, 2014.
