The upcoming lead Dracula movie has had a makeover! Nope, it hasn’t dyed its hair a questionable shade of blonde and layered on the blue eyeshadow with a shovel, it’s just done a title switcheroo.

Formerly, the movie had the Best Worst Dracula Title Ever as 'Dracula: Year Zero'. Srsly, who's going to see that? It sounds like a post-apocalyptic vamp movie, and the thing about the apocalypse is – when it happens, there'll be a serious deficit of humans for vampires to chow down on.

Luckily, the marketing/directorial team had a change of heart and have retitled it Dracula Untold. Which is a bit Girl, Interrupted, no? So now I'm wondering if it'll feature a sexily sociopathic and some grey-toned camera work.


"[Don't think] of the Dracula that Bram Stoker created," Evans told in a recent interview. "The Dracula that I'm going to be portraying is the origin of Dracula. It's about the man that became Dracula. Don't be too quick to think he's a bad guy. I'm just going to say that."

Dracula Untold will hit cinemas on October 4 2013.
