Let me just copy the first paragraph of this linked article word for word: “It might not have been the story everyone was expecting to see, but that may be the reason why 2014’s Dracula Untold has garnered so many fans, despite its disastrous box-office performance. The movie quickly became an unlikely cult classic in… Continue reading Will DRACULA UNTOLD Get Retold?
Here’s a bit of bummer news. That Dracula movie set to be helmed by Karyn Kusama (director of JENNIFER’S BODY) for Blumhouse has reportedly been scrapped. “Miramax is said to have exited, torpedoing what would have been a modern take on the mythos,” according to THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER. DEADLINE went into a little more detail,… Continue reading One Less Dracula
The first images of Nicolas Cage as Dracula from the forthcoming film RENFIELD have been revealed to the world, and they are everything they ought to be. It’ll be a little over a year before we get to see the movie, but Mr. Cage is already hard at work channeling the Count. Nicholas Hoult may… Continue reading Here’s….Dracula!
Remember that project I backed, the printing of a new book featuring the original artwork from first-ever illustrated run of the Swedish version of DRACULA? Well, my copy arrived! Left on my front porch. By a deliveryman. Who left it on the stoop. In the rain. Instead of carrying it a few feet closer to… Continue reading The Original DRACULA Artwork has Arrived!
Things are looking promising that we will get the real Nicolas Cage and not his evil untalented doppelganger starring as Count Dracula in the forthcoming film RENFIELD. Just listen to some of his words concerning the project: “I want it to pop in a unique way from how we’ve seen it [the character] played. So… Continue reading Nicolas Cage will be a Malignant Dracula
I promised over on our Twitter feed that I’d have more to say on this subject. Well, here it is: I’m stoked. A few short years ago I would have thrown my hands in the air in resignation. “Well, there’s one movie I won’t be seeing!” I would’ve said. Because at that time, the *other*… Continue reading Nicolas Cage is Dracula!
Tom Cruise will be reprising the role of Lestat for the new INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE series airing on AMC! Just kidding. The role will instead be played by relatively unknown Australian actor Sam Reid. I’m not all that familiar with Reid’s work. He was in THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM, and the HATFIELDS AND MCCOYS television… Continue reading A New Lestat, a New Bride for Dracula?
This is not the Dracula for the forthcoming Universal Horror movie, nor the other Dracula movie from Chloe Zhao. Both of those are in development, but no names have been revealed yet, no performers cast. No, this is yet another Dracula! (And can we ever have too many? I think not!) This is the Dracula… Continue reading New Dracula Cast!
My compatriot Hans de Roos has done it again. This is the guy who brought to us the lost Icelandic translation (in actuality an entirely different version) of Bram Stoker’s DRACULA, aka MAKT MYRKRANNA or POWERS OF DARKNESS, the guy who discovered the actual geographic location of Castle Dracula (the location of the one in… Continue reading The First DRACULA Artwork!
There’s this certain Walmart I’m no longer allowed to patronize. Generally speaking, the Walmart franchise is not known for its geek fare. They have a good selection of T-shirts, and there’s occasionally some good stuff. (I got a great Alien Queen figure for just 20 bucks at Walmart.) But—again, speaking in generalities, Target has a… Continue reading Mego Hammer Dracula
