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 modern horror, and it served as a great starting point for what was supposed to be the biggest horror cinematic universe the world has ever seen, Universal’s Dark Universe. Isn’t it time for a sequel, Dracula Untold 2?” Okay, o the part about it being the first installment in the DARK UNIVERSE isn’t exactly true. At one point they were saying that it would be, then they said it wouldn’t be. The fact is, the suits-in-the-offices, with typical suits-in-offices stupidity, didn’t know what they were doing, and one suit didn’t know what another suit was thinking. There was never a cohesive plan.

“Despite its failure at the box office, the movie got an unexpected boost in its popularity when it arrived on Netflix.” So the article claims. While that may well be true, it doesn’t mean anything, as any sequel to DRACULA UNTOLD would have to be extricated from a lot of legal red tape.
