No doubt, many of you are looking forward to seeing Luke Evans continue his work as Bard the Bowman in this winter’s finale to Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy, but before he returns to Lake Town, be sure to check out the actor as he takes on yet another infamous character, Vlad the Impaler. The trailer, seen below, focuses on a different tale of the man who would be Dracula, one of a family man who is driven to darkness in an attempt to save his people against invading forces.
Game of Thrones’ Charles Dance also joins Evans in the trailer as the creature who turns Vlad into the creature of the night we have all come to know. The effects are impressive at this point, and the story looks like a fresh take on the legend. See the trailer to decide for yourself prior to the film’s October 17 release date.
