Ah, Summit Entertainment. They've tantalized a generation of teens and cougars with their vampire and werewolf laden tales in The Twilight Saga. Now they're looking to move on to the one vampire with some real bite -- Dracula. He had better not friggin' sparkle!
We've been telling you about the official print follow-up to Bram Stoker's Dracula for a while now. Dacre Stoker, Bram Stoker’s great-grandnephew, has penned a sequel to the original novel along with Long Island screenwriter Ian Holt, which even has the official backing of the Stoker Estate, the first to have such a designation since the original film adaptation starring Bela Lugosi. Now that the book is in the can, a promotional trailer has hit the web.
Now this is interesting news. Not only do Dracula fans have the official sequel in novel form, Dracula: The Un-Dead (which we first told you about here), to look forward to this October, there's also a totally separate, but still Stoker family-sanctioned, graphic novel on its way.
While there have been many rehashes and follow-ups to Bram Stoker’s original Dracula novel, there has never been an official sequel put on paper. Until now.
Famous Monsters of Filmland is thrilled to be able to share a two-day double feature event at the end of May with the American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theater in Los Angeles, California. Saturday, May 30th, will be adorned with a double bill of Son of Frankenstein (1939) followed by Ghost of Frankenstein (1942). Sunday goes for the famous leading vampire with the classic Dracula (1931) as well as House of Dracula (1945).
Dynamite Entertainment has released initial images for a graphic novel based upon Bram Stoker’s Dracula, one of their main publishing projects for 2009. Dubbed The Complete Dracula, the release purports that that this graphic novel is an adaptation of the original work and not the modified version that most of us are familiar with.
Last night an e-mail showed up with info and the first pics from a new indie vampire film called Bram Stoker’s Vampire Diaries. Normally I would dismiss this out of hand since, well, vampire movies generally suck, but something about this project made me want to share it with you guys.
Sure, we've seen many Dracula films and books over the years, but not many of them got the Stoker seal of approval ... until now.
If this is not the most badass thing you’ve seen all day ... you’re having a better day than I am. Image just gave Newsarama an exclusive look at their upcoming Dracula Meets the Wolf -Man, which hits stand this week.
Of all the images Nomad got with his camera walking around Comic Con, I was really surprised to only see one of this amazing statue coming soon from Sideshow. It’s Dracula throttling Renfield, which I’m sure he deserves, and as you can tell it’s a thing of beauty.
