'Dracula Untold' Coming To IMAX

– by LRM

I know what you've been hoping for. I know what your dream come true would be. So now I can answer your prayers: Yes, there is another Dracula movie coming.

And that's not all! It's coming...to IMAX. Dracula will be played by Luke Evans this time.

Gary Shore directs and Michael De Luca produces this epic action-adventure that co-stars Sarah Gadon, Dominic Cooper, Diarmaid Murtagh and Samantha Barks. 

"Dracula is perhaps the most iconic horror story ever told, and this new twist on this classic tale is sure to appeal to IMAX audiences around the world," said Greg Foster, CEO of IMAX Entertainment and Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. "We're excited to have the opportunity to once again partner with the terrific team at Universal and our long time collaborators at Legendary as we present this exciting film in IMAX."

The IMAX release of Dracula Untold will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

Dracula Untold will arrive in North America on October 17. As cynical as I am about this, it is nice to see a horror movie getting an October release. Hopefully we won't have another dry October/Halloween Season again for quite some time.
