If you're a Hollywood studio and you have to pay big bucks to include a cover song from one of the hottest acts in the world to make your trailer seem cool nine times out of 10 it's not a good sign.  Enter the first preview for Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures "Dracula Untold." Directed by commercial director Gary Shore, "Untold" features Luke Evans ("The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug") as Vlad Tepes, a prince from ancient times who must make a deal with "a" devil ("Game of Thrones'" Charles Dance covered in makeup) to save his family and kingdom from an evil Sultan (Dominic Cooper looking for a paycheck).  Or course, that means becoming a vampire and all the bloodsucking issues that comes with it.  But, as the trailer wants you to remember, he's a hero this time around!  He's sacrificed everything to save his family!  He's just been misunderstood all these years! »
