Set to debut at this years Cannes Film Festival, Dario Argento‘s (Suspiria, Tenebre, Deep Red) Dracula 3D has finally released its new official trailer. Shot completely in 3D, this film starts Rutger Hauer as Van Helsing and Thomas Kretschmann as Dracula. Not too much new here in regards to story or plot. It’s pretty much what you would expect in terms of the Dracula lore. Visually from what I saw in the trailer, it looks like there can be some visual value to the film but other than that it doesn’t look too promising. I’m not sure how fans will approach this and I can see it hitting on demand video pretty soon. Who cares what I say though, see for yourself!
“The tale begins with Jonathan Harker, journeying by train and carriage from England to Count Dracula’s crumbling, remote castle situated in the Carpathian Mountains on the border of Transylvania. The purpose of his mission is to catalogue the big library of Dracula. At first enticed by Dracula’s gracious manner, Harker soon discovers that he has become a prisoner in the castle. He also begins to see disquieting facets of Dracula’s nocturnal life. One night while searching for a way out of the castle, and against Dracula’s strict admonition not to venture outside his room at night, Harker falls under the spell of three wanton female vampires, the Brides of Dracula.”
