Originally called Dracula: Year Zero until something more desperate-sounding was conceived, Dracula Untold at last tells the dark, self-serious Dracula origin no one before had the guts nor CGI bat budget to tell.
Luke Evans stars as Vlad Tepes, loving father, fighter, and prince to a people under the oppression of a cruel sultan. As we begin our untold tale, he is not a Dracula, but as the sultan continues his demands, quickly he realizes, "Alright, I guess I'm going to have to become a Dracula." So, he climbs the mountain where Tywin Lannister serves as the Dracula grail-keeper, and he drinks of the Dracula Untold collectible cup. Now he's a Dracula (Untold)! Basically, it's like being a The Mummy, except instead of turning into sand, you turn into a similarly amorphous bat cloud:
Maybe it's a way out!
Maybe it's the Fratellis!
Maybe Chunk found the police!
Maybe it's another one of Willy's booby traps!
Nope. Just Dracula.
