But this isn't really the Bram Stoker story we've all come to know and love -- this is more like a 'Mummy'-esque prequel story.
Hollywood isn't short on origin stories these days, and the first 'Dracula Untold' poster has emerged to herald the arrival of yet another one. Luke Evans, last seen in 'Fast and Furious 6' and 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,' leads his own blockbuster as the man who would soon be known to the world as the iconic vampire lord, Dracula.
