Luke Evans looks good in a cape. And I get the impression that Luke Evans knows that he looks good in a cape, though, the trick is, as he says, a good wind machine. This is now life for Evans, an admittedly private actor who is starring in what seems to be just about everything these days. I asked Evans if he can walk down the street without being mobbed, to which he responded that, outside of a stray fan every few blocks or so, he can still walk around in general obscurity. Soon after this interview, I left Evans’ hotel and was greeted by an almost block-wide spread depicting Evans as Dracula ... you know, those mobs might be coming sooner rather than later.

During Universal's horror golden age of the '30s and '40s, the studio's beloved monsters all existed in aesthetically similar movies. When they starting going into decline, they even started showing up in each other's films to team up and/or battle to the death. So it makes perfect sense for the Universal of 2014 to see potential in a shared cinematic universe of their iconic monsters and it looks like the upcoming 'Dracula Untold' will kick it all off.

'Dracula Untold' is looking to do to the world's most famous vampire what 'Batman Begins' did for The Dark Knight. This doesn't just look like a simple origin story, which could be a good thing! Or it could be a bad thing! What we do know is that Luke Evans is inspired casting as Dracula himself and that a new series of fresh videos arrived to let you start pre-judging this film as you see fit.

Last year, 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' ended on a huge cliffhanger that promised a fiery start to 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.' The new poster for the third film in director Peter Jackson's Middle Earth prequel trilogy takes the final images from the previous film and runs with them, promising a showdown that fans of the book have been waiting three years to see.

We've had an 'Unexpected Journey' and seen the 'Desolation of Smaug,' and now this year Peter Jackson brings us the conclusion of the trilogy with 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.' With six months still left ahead before we catch up with Bilbo and friends, it's about time we get our first look at the final chapter in their story.

Universal and Legendary unleashed our first 'Dracula Untold' trailer unto the world, riffing a bit on our current superhero-obsessed culture while showing off Luke Evans as the iconic vampire Dracula. 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.

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.

'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' Review

There comes a time when we must stop kidding ourselves. These 'Hobbit' films – with 'The Desolation of Smaug' representing the shank of the trilogy – are not real movies. These are exploitation films for Tolkien nuts, for enthusiasts of the original 'Lord of the Rings' movies and for audiences so hungry for high fantasy they'll gobble up whatever is served to them and ask for seconds.
As someone who has sympathy, but not empathy, for those who have such proclivities, I can get why someone might come away liking this picture. But that is more of an involuntary reaction to exposure to certain elements, not the summation of a film. Listen, there's a grey-bearded wizard who warns in low tones about a place that sounds like “Doggledoor.” And there's someone referred to as “Thorin son of Thrain son of Thror.” I love that geekorama stuff more than most. It's hilarious, and I'll probably refer to my cat as “Thorin son of Thrain son of Thror” for the next week. But this movie doesn't cohere – there's no forward momentum, no character development, no story happening. Anyone who tells you otherwise is a fibber.

'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' is now just over a month away, bringing back Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Ian McKellen and that bumbling band of dwarfs to continue their journey to face down the evil dragon Smaug. But who are the new warriors we'll meet along the way? If you still don't know your Tolkien mythology, Warner Bros. has released seven new 'The Hobbit 2' character posters.
