Okay, the previews for this look pretty good and the story had not really been told before

Should I hope for a good one?

Really? I think they look like shit.

Also, according to IMDB it's by a first time director and first time writers. WTF?

I have to admit that while everything about it screams "Nope" to me, there's something in the back of my head that thinks it could be good. I see all the signs of a mediocre-at-best movie, but some part of me thinks I might like it.

Isn't that Bard from The Hobbit playing Doctor Acula?

Possibly worth mentioning that Bram Stoker only connected Dracula to Vlad Tepes somewhat after-the-fact:

BTW, do I have to wait until after it flops before I can make "Dracula Untold? More like 'Dracula Unseen,' amirite?" jokes?  :D

The really poor reviews will probably keep that from happening.

It's not quite a "Fuck you it's January" movie, but it's close. I think they bury the horror/supernatural movies in October (no pun intended) like they do with the rest of the garbage movies in January.

Since the Family Guy/Simpsons crossover, I find it very hard to show empathy for writers. What about when those writers do nothing but turn out shit for January movies? I think it's not so much down to talent as it is luck and having a really good agent.

It's not all about what the writers are able to turn out, it's what gets bought. I have a ton of empathy for writers in movies or tv, because I've heard enough to know how their work gets butchered and filtered.

Fair enough, but the sad part is whether it's their fault or not, it still leaves them with a bad reputation.

Not sure what I think about this:

Is Dracula Untold the Prologue to the Universal Monsters Universe?
