Dracula Untold is an Irish-American film based on Bram Stoker's novel. It is due for release on the 10th October.

I was watching an interview with one of the actors yesterday, who said it was bigger than all the previous Dracula films. Do you really think it will offer something new?

There are so many adaptations, what can another bring to the table?

I think it will bring something visually new to the story, and I think it will have a more modern feel to it as well.
I haven't read Bram Stoker's Dracula, but I have seen the movie. If the book follows the movie, then Dracula Untold should be very different. The movie adaptation of Stoker's Dracula was the story of Dracula long after he had turned into a vampire, and Dracula Untold seems to the story of how and why he turned, an origin story. I think it looks pretty good too, I'm looking forward to watching it.
I haven't seen the film, but read the book and yes, the book is all about after he is a vampire, and has lots of letters from a character called Lucy. It sounds like this one will be very different in that case.
Having read the book some years ago, I am interested to see what the film does with the story.

I certainly don't think it did
