Ten Best: Unforgettable Dracula Performances

3 hours ago | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Horror cinema has a long tradition of creating iconic characters and none more so than those borne in the early days of the genre: characters such as Frankenstein’s monster, the Mummy, the Creature from the Black Lagoon and, of course, Dracula – the king of horror. A character who, despite his many cinematic deaths, always returns to the silver screen for one more bite of flesh… As he does this week in Dracula Untold, which features Luke Evans as the evil Vlad Tepes.

With that in mind we thought we’d rundown the ten best unforgettable Dracula performances in cinema. Check them out below and let us know in the comments if you agree or disagree!

Film Review: ‘Dracula Untold’

16 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s nothing new under the moon in “Dracula Untold,” a decorous but dull origin story that attempts to turn history’s most famous vampire into a kind of male Maleficent — a misunderstood husband/father/ruler who turned to the dark side out of the noblest intentions. What next? “Freddy Krueger Meets Dr. Freud?” Lavishly mounted by first-time feature director Gary Shore, minus the cheeky good humor that propelled his 2006 creature-feature short “The Draft,” this Legendary-Universal co-production (which opens today overseas, 10 days ahead of its domestic bow) looks to scare up only modest Halloween-season biz amid competition from Warners’ “Annabelle” (out Oct. 3) and U’s own “Ouija” (out Oct. 24).

Like Bram Stoker before them, screenwriters Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless (the forthcoming “Gods of Egypt”) take their inspiration from the real historical figure of Vlad Dracula (aka Vlad the Impaler), a 15th-century Transylvanian prince, taken hostage as a teenager »

'Dracula Untold' Featurette Introduces Vampire Bride Mirena

20 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following last week's featurette that explores Vlad Tepes history in Universal Pictures' Dracula Untold, the studio has released a new behind-the-scenes video that showcases Vlad's better half, Milena, played by Sarah Gadon.

This upcoming adventure blends both fact and fiction, combining the legacy of Bram Stoker's classic vampire Bram Stoker with the real-life figure Vlad Tepes, a.k.a. Vlad the Impaler, whom Dracula was loosely based on. In the film, Vlad's relationship with his loving wife Milena is the reason he goes down this path to becoming the legendary vampire Dracula.

Sarah Gadon explains how she tried to define a real relationship in her rehearsals with co-star Luke Evans, while stating that the actor was born to play this iconic character. We also hear from Luke Evans, who praises Sarah Gadon's performance and director Gary Shore in this behind-the-scenes featurette for Dracula Untold that includes plenty »

The Academy Celebrates The Opening of The Hollywood Costume Exhibition in Los Angeles

21 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

By Gary Salem and Michelle McCue

“What a costume designer does is a cross between magic and camouflage. We create the illusion of changing the actors into what they are not. We ask the public to believe that every time they see a performer on the screen he’s become a different person.”

Edith Head

On Monday, Wamg attended the press preview for the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences groundbreaking multimedia exhibition Hollywood Costume in the historic Wilshire May Company building.

Taking five years to create, this exhibition is the kickoff for the whole Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.

Emphasizing how costumes are so important in creating characters, this one-of-a-kind exhibition comes with its own film score, enhanced with dazzling animations and screenplay excerpts.

Organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (V&A), and sponsored by Swarovski, this ticketed exhibition »

Dracula Untold review

29 September 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Telling the origins of the Prince of Darkness, Dracula Untold is a dark action fantasy starring Luke Evans. Here's Duncan's review...

Dracula has been a popular draw for cinema audiences since the earliest days of cinema. Just the mere mention of the name will conjure up a variety of actors who’ve made the Transylvanian blood sucker their own, from Bela Lugosi and Christopher Lee to Gary Oldman and, er, Dominic Purcell. Very little screen time has been devoted to Dracula’s origins, though, so in keeping with the year one (Untold’s original title) trend that’s punctuated many a movie re-launch over the past decade or so -  in the likes of Casino Royale and X-Men: First Class - the prince of darkness finally has a little light shone on how he came to be.

(Cbr) Eurythmics member and record producer Dave Stewart will begin production on a film adaptation of his Virgin Comics graphic novel "Zombie Broadway," Deadline reports. Described as a “horror musical,” "Zombie Broadway" lives up to the promise of its eye-catching title: usical theater actors fight off waves of the undead with the power of song. The 2008 graphic novel was created by Stewart along with David Harris and co-writer Christine Schenley. The film has already found a screenwriter and director in Cole Haddon (NBC’s "Dracula") and acclaimed music video director Jonas Akerlund, respectively. “I’ve always been obsessed with the idea of film married with a story and music,” Stewart said. “Jonas [Akerlund] has shot loads of music videos, but one of the first ones that caught my attention was ‘Smack My Bitch Up.’ I was not let down when I met him, not only with his wild imagination but his »

Cole Haddon of NBC's short-lived Dracula series has been tapped to pen a screen adaptation of Zombie Broadway. The property was created by Dave Stewart - co-creator of the Eurythmics - and published by Virgin Comics.

Dave Stewart’s ‘Zombie Broadway’ Heading To Big Screen

25 September 2014 12:31 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

While we would be the first to say that comic book adaptations need to slow down at the moment…this is one we can definitely excuse! It has been revealed that Zombie Broadway will be heading to the big screens, and it has got some pretty big people attached.

The graphic novel, created by Dave Stewart, David Harris and Christine Schenley, tells the story of a zombie outbreak in New York City that can only be stopped by the song and dance of the Broadway stage. Dracula creator Cole Haddon will pen the script, while Jonas Åkerlund is set to take on directing duties.

Stewart did reveal back in 2012 that Zombie Broadway would be happening with Åkerlund attached to direct, but it has only been recently that the project has had the push forward with The Butler producers Pam Williams and David Jacobson attached. Stewart is of course known for »

‘Dracula Untold’ Featurette: The Man Behind the Monster

25 September 2014 8:22 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Next month’s Dracula Untold tells the story of how Vlad Tepes (brought to life by Luke Evans) goes from being an ordinary, well-meaning, man of the 15th century to the eponymous, blood-thirsty monster that everyone knows.

The film is a re-invention of the Dracula character (and the larger metaphor behind him), as featured in Bram Stoker’s famous novel – a re-imagining that may launch not just a new series of Dracula films, but perhaps also a Shared Monster Movie Universe (in the best-case scenario). First, though, Dracula Untold will need to present a compelling portrait of the man who will become Dracula, and a newly-released featurette (watch it above) highlights that key aspect of the film.

Evans has been a standout supporting player in multiple blockbusters at this stage, but between Dracula Untold and this December’s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies – which pushes ...

50 bizarre examples of movie tie-ins and merchandise

25 September 2014 12:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Movie merchandise is big business. But some people will try and slap the name of The Avengers or Batman on anything...

Cool film stuff can be almost as fun as actually going to the movies. Think of a Batman cape, an Arnold Schwarzenegger action figure, or Goldeneye on the N64. Hell, the merchandising can often be more enjoyable than the actual film – remember how much fun the first few months of 1999 were before Star Wars: The Phantom Menace was actually released?

Yet, in the chase to make a quick buck out of devoted fans, some... let's just say less relevant, movie merchandise is churned out and flogged to the public.

Here then are 50 of the strangest (not ranked in order!) – expect action figures of obscure henchmen, 16-carat gold Twilight jewellery and some truly vomit-inducing burgers…

The evolution of the TV virus thriller

16 September 2014 6:32 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Guillermo del Toro’s The Strain comes to the UK, we look back at how TV’s virus thrillers have mutated over the decades…

It was much so simpler when they’d just kill you. Once upon a time, viruses in TV dramas were straightforward slaughterers. The flu of 1975’s Survivors, for instance, cut a swathe through the UK, leaving well-spoken corpses wherever it went. Once infected, you’d cough, start sweating, and then drop dead - unless you numbered amongst the lucky immune, in which case it was time to brush up on your scouting badge survival skills and attempt to make your way in a post-plague world.

Nowadays, TV’s infected aren’t given anything like such an easy time of it. After the coughing, sweating, lurching - and often, dying - stage, more often than not, the virus transforms you. You mutate into something monstrous, one »
