Arriving in theaters just in time for Halloween this fall is Dracula Untold, with Luke Evans bringing the iconic vampire to life in ways fans have never seen before. This thriller explores the origins of Dracula, combining the vampire mythology created by author Bram Stoker with the true history of Vlad Tepes (a.k.a. Vlad the Impaler), who served as the author's inspiration for creating Dracula. Set during the Turkish invasion of Romania, the story follows Vlad as he sells his soul to the devil to protect his family. Take a look at the first footage from director Gary Shore's upcoming thriller, debuting October 17.

Director Gary Shore revamps the mythos surrounding Vlad the Impaler in Dracula Untold, a Univeral Pictures release from a script by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless. The horror tale is set to take place in Romania during the Turkish invasion as Vlad (Luke Evans) goes to the greatest of lengths to fight for his homeland -- even if it means selling his soul and becoming forever doomed as a creature of the night.
