NEW 'DRACULA UNTOLD' TRAILER
LUKE EVANS AND BATS ARE RULING MEDIEVAL WALACHIA
Universal has released a new trailer (which shows more than we've seen in the first one) for this Autumn's biggest epic adventure DRACULA UNTOLD which will see Welsh hunk Luke Evans grow some fangs on October 3rd in UK and 17th in USA. Also starring Dominic Cooper as the Turkish sultan, Samantha Barks as Baba Yaga, Sarah Gadon as Dracula's wife, Charlie Cox and Charles Dance, the story of this amazing historical adventure takes place in Romania during the Turkish invasion as Vlad Tepes (Luke Evans) goes to the greatest of lengths to fight for his homeland, even if it means selling his soul and becoming forever doomed as a creature of the night. He will become Dracula in order to protect his family and his country from the invading butchers of the Turkish sultan.

    2. For some reason I thought Dustin was dead. My bad.

    1. well, if you have a convenient cave over in Walstonia.... :) It's funny but I actually have a bat in my backyard, sleeps probably at one of neighbours' attics.... likes to fly out at night which is why I go outside to my yard when the darkness falls only in the company of my cat Ignatius :)

    2. We actually have a hospital nearby that bats have taken over the parking garage.

    1. I've never watched it, just noticed the buzz in British press they call it the greatest baking scandal ever :)

    2. If you ever get to see series one or two or three, it's really well worth the watch.

      Got your note about eggs whites. Not sure what you mean, but no, no one I know uses them from a box, we just part out our own eggs.

      That's not to say some don't buy them, but to me, it's a waste of money and a crappy product to use in anything.

      Delete
    3. I was shocked when I saw that they sell eggwhites packed in cartoons over there... what the what? How do you even measure it and how long can it last packed like that... it sure ain't fresh.... Although I can understand the need if you're making tones of pavlova's and such cakes....

    4. I don't know, as I say I don't buy it. Right now I'm groovin' on the eggs from the farmer down the road. Wonderful stuff.

    5. we had chicken when I was little, so I grew up on our farm eggs, and now I eat maybe five a month LOL :)

  10. You know I'm tired of Dracula after all the teen coverage of it. But, Luke is in it, sooooo I'll watch it. While I don't want him to bite me and drink my blood, I wouldn't mind if he nuzzled my neck.
