Vampires have been quite popular on television for a while now (don’t even get us started on all the movies coming out), but NBC‘s Dracula takes it old school – with a twist. Yes they took parts of the basic setup of Bram Stoker’s Dracula but they’ve updated it, turned it on its head a bit. This, according to the actors involved.
We’ll be seeing more about that tomorrow, but for now, check out the two official trailers for, and a behind the scenes look at, NBC‘s Dracula:
Trailer: Dracula – Official
Trailer: Dracula – Second Official
Featurette: Dracula – Behind the Scenes: The Making of Dracula
And here again is the synopsis:
It’s the late 19th century, and the mysterious Dracula has arrived in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. He’s especially interested in the new technology of electricity, which promises to brighten the night – useful for someone who avoids the sun. But he has another reason for his travels: he hopes to take revenge on those who cursed him with immortality centuries earlier. Everything seems to be going according to plan… until he becomes infatuated with a woman who appears to be a reincarnation of his dead wife.
Dracula starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Ben Miles, Jessica De Gouw, Thomas Kretschmann, Nonso Anozie, Katie McGrath, and Victoria Smurfit premieres Friday, October 25 at 10/9c on NBC.
