Don’t Worry, ‘Dracula Untold’ Is Not Part Of The Universal Monster Movie Canon

4 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Oh, hopes were once so high for “Dracula Untold,” that vampire movie you forgot that was released in 2014 starring Luke Evans. As the movie was gearing up to hit theaters, it was announced that Universal would be embarking on a monster movie universe, and at first, the plan was to include “Dracula Untold.”

“I was really excited to be part of that [world]. When we started out we weren’t [part of the series], but then we found out that they were going to do it,” the film’s producer Alissa Phillips said mere days before it was released.

Dracula Untold Is No Longer Part of Universal Monsters Universe

5 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Universal is currently in the process of reviving and updating all of their classic movie monsters, starting with The Mummy, in the hopes of developing a shared universe. The first trailer for Tom Cruise's The Mummy debuted last night, and it will be the first movie in this saga. Until the release of this sneak peek, there had been speculation and rumors that Luke Evans' Dracula Untold will also be included. But that idea has been put to bed completely.

Director Alex Kurtzman recently attended a press event for the release of the first Mummy trailer and he was asked point blank about Dracula Untold being a part of this new universe. As ScreenRant tells it, he very simply said "no." A couple of months ago we reported that Luke Evans had some conversations about potentially reprising his role as Dracula in this new universe and he seemed quite open to it. »

Newswire: Dracula Untold gets uninvited from Universal’s shared monster-verse

5 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

When the Universal Monsters Cinematic Universe was first announced a million years ago in the summer of 2014, there was some ambiguity about whether Gary Shore’s soon-to-be-released Dracula Untold would be considered canon. Next year’s The Mummy was the official kick-off of the franchise, but creative heads Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan said that they would “reevaluate projects which have preexisting attachments, and bring it under one cohesive strategy.” That’s a sort of fancy way of saying, “We’re going to wait and see if we want Luke Evans’ undead stench stinking up our shared universe.”

As it turns out, they do not. During a press event for the unveiling of the first Mummy trailer—yes, that’s a thing that happens now—Kurtzman, the long awaited reboot’s director, confirmed that Dracula Untold could continue being untold for all he cares, because it doesn’t have ...

Kurtzman Talks Universal Monsters Universe, Reveals If Dracula Untold Is Canon

8 hours ago | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Yesterday, Universal Pictures unleashed the first full-fledged trailer for The Mummy. This morning the trailer, as well as reactions to it, are making the rounds all over the world. Now that we've all gotten our first look at what Universal has in store for us, the topic of this new Cinematic Universe they're trying to build is a hot one. 

As you likely know, Cinematic Universes comprised of shared worlds where various films come out and are part of the same overall mythology are all the rage. The Mummy will be part of a Universe that includes Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man, and more from the classic roster of monsters from Universal's first big heyday.

They announced these plans back in 2014, the same year when a film called Dracula Untold came out. At the time, things were kind of fuzzy with regard to whether or not that film would serve »

The Mummy Trailer Is Here

23 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Welcome to a new world of Gods and monsters! Universal Pictures, as promised, has released the first full-length trailer for their reboot of The Mummy. Let's just hope we get to see Tom Cruise running a bunch in this new world, as he's known to do. It seems likely because this trailer teases a seriously action-packed adventure that looks to be a far cry from the Brendan Fraser version.

Tom Cruise posted a teaser for this first trailer on his Twitter account earlier in the week, promising the full trailer would arrive on Sunday. He made good on his word and we now have our first real look at the new take on the classic monster tale. The trailer includes a good look at Kingsman and Star Trek Beyond star Sofia Boutella as the famed monster and even Russell Crowe as Dr. Jekyll. Here is the official synopsis for The Mummy. »

30 November 2016 3:34 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

To say that people are excited for Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast, which is coming out next year, would be an understatement. The recently released full-length trailer broke the trailer-view record for a 24-hour period, which is no small feat. Now, a new International trailer has made its way online, giving fans just a bit more new footage to chew on and get excited about.

This new trailer for Beauty and the Beast made its way onto YouTube recently and for the most part, is a slightly condensed version of the first full-length trailer that Disney released a couple of weeks ago. However, there is some new footage in here that further showcases how closely this live-action take will mirror the original animated classic. In this new trailer, we get to see a new shot of Mrs. Potts' son Chip, as well as some more of Belle's horse in the snowy garden. »

28 November 2016 9:58 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

At one time, the television adaptation of Caleb Carr‘s bestselling thriller “The Alienist” was going to be directed by Cary Fukunaga, with Garrett Hedlund starring. But the busy filmmaker bowed out of the director’s chair, staying on to executive-produce, and Hedlund left as well. But the project is pressing forward, and has two intriguing actors to lead the series.

Daniel Brühl and Luke Evans will star in the drama set in 1896 New York City, where a string of brutal, gruesome murders of young male prostitutes indicates that a serial killer may be at large.
