Can't stand the prospect of watching another vampire movie in the same vein as 'Twilight'? Do you yearn for the days when vampires were the stuff of nightmares and not the subject of appalling teenage romantic fiction? Then 'Dracula Untold' may be the tonic you need!
It's fair to say anyone past the age of 14 is fed up with vampires or at least of the overly sympathetic versions we are bombarded with in Twilight. We all miss the good old days when vampires were naughty, vicious and decadent creatures as opposed to floppy haired 'vegetarian' romantics. So if you're longing for the days of Lestat, searching for the sharp wit of Spike or simply want to see Gary Oldman's shadow mischievously revealing his inner thoughts, then the upcoming film Dracula Untold may be for you.
Lee Evans stars in Dracula Untold as Vlad Tepes.
Dracula Untold follows the character Bram Stoker's Dracula is based on, Vlad III, and attempts to create a link between the medieval Romanian ruler and the fictional monster we've come to know and love. In the film we are set to see Vlad strike up a bargain with an unusual fanged creature (yes, it's most definitely a vampire) that lives high on a deserted mountain in order to protect his family and people from the machinations of Sultan Mehmed II. Complete with billowing red cape, the trailer suggests Dracula Untold may be an historical epic crossed with a graphic novel à la 300.
Vlad III Tepes is the Prince of Wallachia and a warrior with a fearsome reputation. Thought of by many as a hero with the ability to defeat armies of men, and by others as a powerful and often cruel adversary, Vlad is facing a huge challenge. Sultan Mehmed II is preparing for battle and he needs a thousand young boys to join his army, and thus Vlad's son is being dragged into the conflict. Determined to protect his family, he sets out to find a way to protect his people single-handedly, so that no children must face the dangers of war. It's then he comes across a dark beast with the power to transform him, and he becomes Dracula; an immortal, blood-drinking demon with the ability to morph into a bat and defend whole cities of civilians. Unfortunately, few are welcoming of his new form and it seems that even those he is striving to protect will turn against him.

With Drew Goddard out as showrunner for 'Daredevil,' what does it mean for the upcoming Marvel Netflix series?
Fans anticipating the upcoming Netflix series ‘Daredevil’ were in for a shake up last week when it was announced that Drew Goddard would be leaving the Marvel superhero show as showrunner. No need to worry though: they’ve already replaced him with Steven DeKnight, probably best known for being the creator of the Starz hit series, ‘Spartacus.’ For Goddard, who has previously directed 2012’s horror thriller, The Cabin in the Woods, he is still enlisted in the ‘Daredevil’ show as a consultant, but will just no longer be seeing through the duties of what a showrunner does.
Steven DeKnight will be taking over as 'Daredevil' showrunner
What does a showrunner do, anyway? And is it even important? Well, yes. A showrunner basically does everything. They can cast an actor and fire them in the same day, make changes to the script, or even help write the script in general. A showrunner is the television equivalent to what a head coach is in professional sports, and if a team doesn’t have a good one of those, chances are the team won’t be winning a lot of games in the season.
Daredevil has a new face - and that face is unusually English.
Meet your new Daredevil – Charlie Cox. The Boardwalk Empire has been hired by Marvel/Netflix to portray Matt Murdoch, the blind lawyer from Hell’s Kitchen and his horned alter ego, according to the LA Times. So we can all move past the Ben Affleck incident already.
So can Cox pull it off?
Murdoch’s other most memorable role was in the Neil Gaiman adaptation Stardust, but the 31-year-old actor is otherwise new to the fantasy genre and certainly new to the Marvel universe. The entertainment powerhouse is currently expanding its media presence even further with four upcoming Netflix series, including ones centered around Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage and of course, Daredevil.
