Bela Lugosi Returns as Dracula in New Comic

Tony Sokol Oct 10, 2019

Legendary Comics will graphically interpret iconic vampire novel in "Bram Stoker's Dracula Starring Bela Lugosi."

Cinema's premiere Count Dracula will be donning his opera cape again. Bela Lugosi had a love-hate relationship with the bloodsucking role that made him an icon. He occasionally felt straitjacketed by the horrific typecasting, but he loved the cape so much he wore it in several films including Plan 9 from Outer Space, and was buried in it. A new adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula will once again drape his form with the elegant attire. Legendary Comics will publish the original graphic novel Bram Stoker's Dracula Starring Bela Lugosi, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The novel, which promises to faithfully adapt Bram Stoker’s supernatural classic, will feature art from El Garing and art direction from publisher Kerry Gammill. The title character will be inked to star Lugosi. Bram Stoker's Dracula

8 Things You’ve Never Noticed From Bram Stoker’s Dracula

If you want a feast for the eyes and a heartbreaking storyline intertwined with an epic adventure, ask Francis Ford Coppola. A director with an eye for detail and a passion for literary adaptation, Coppola has given us films like The Godfather, Apocolypse Now and Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992).

When Dracula Met Dracula: Gary Oldman and Luke Evans Unite for Vampire Photo
Dracula actors Gary Oldman and Luke Evans posed for a photo together posted on the latter's Twitter account, and it's a real treat for big fans of vampire movies. Of course, both actors have portrayed the iconic vampire in unconnected movies, each offering vastly different performances for the character. Captioned as "When Dracula met Dracula," the actors are shown bearing their teeth for the camera, with Evans actually wearing prop fangs. As seriously as the two played the roles in their respective movies, it's amusing to see the two of them together enjoying their reminiscing over previously playing the same monster in their movie careers.

Luke Evans and Gary Oldman were likely working on the upcoming movie Dreamland when the photo was snapped, as Evans inserted a hashtag referencing the movie on his tweeted photo. Written and directed by Nicholas Jarecki, Dreamland will also star Evangeline Lilly, Armie Hammer, Veronica Ferres,

Interview: Richard E Grant on lucky breaks, film diaries, and "Can You Ever Forgive Me?"

by Nathaniel R

Richard E Grant's timing was impeccable during my own journey into cinephilia. I was in the process of falling madly deeply in love with movies when he made his debut in the cult classic With Nail and I (1987) and as I became more invested in not just movie stars but the crucial contributions of character actors to rich movies, he was everyone in so many movies I loved: Henry & June (1990), L.A. Story (1991), Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), The Age of Innocence (1993). I bought his first book "With Nails: The Film Diaries of Richard E Grant" in hardcover right when it was published and later bought it again in paperback. I bring up this chronological personal fandom so that'll you'll understand that I was surely as visibly thrilled to sit down with Richard E Grant as he has appeared to be for the entirety of this awards season.

Winona Ryder Thinks She and Keanu Reeves Got Married for Real While Filming ‘Dracula’
Twenty-six years after heating up the screen in “Bram Stoker’s Dracula,” Winona Ryder wonders if she and her leading man, Keanu Reeves, accidentally got married for real while shooting their characters’ wedding.

“I swear to God I think we’re married in real life,” she told Entertainment Weekly while promoting the upcoming rom-com “Destination Wedding,” which reunites her and Reeves.

“In that scene, [director] Francis [Ford Coppola] used a real Romanian priest,” she explained. “We shot the master and he did the whole thing. So, I think we’re married.”

When they reconnected on the set of “Destination Wedding,” she reminded him that they each said “yes” to the “Do you take…?” question while filming with that ordained priest.

“Don’t you remember that? It was on Valentine’s Day,” she said, to which Reeves deduced,

Why Winston Churchill Continues To Fascinate

Neil Calloway looks at why Britain’s wartime leader is rarely off our screens…

It’s a great pub quiz question; which character has been played by Brendan Gleeson, Timothy Spall, Michael Gambon, Albert Finney, Brian Cox and Christian Slater?

The answer is, of course, Winston Churchill. I normally roll my eyes when I go to a preview screening of something and a member of the public asks a question, it almost inevitably being both pretentious and with little bearing on what we’ve just seen, but last year, after a screening of the TV drama Churchill’s Secret, someone asked if Winston Churchill was becoming a modern Hamlet; the role that every actor wants to play at some point. There’s some truth to that assertion.

Now, with the upcoming release of Darkest Hour, we can add Gary Oldman to the list of those who have played Britain’s wartime leader.

Bram Stoker’S Dracula – 25 Years of Horror and Tragedy

  • DailyDead
Bram Stoker’s Dracula is a modern horror masterpiece, and one that too often goes overlooked. A film that is horrifying, intriguing, and astoundingly beautiful, Francis Ford Coppola took Stoker’s masterwork and breathed new, undead life into it in 1992. It recently hit its 25th anniversary, and the film remains a classic piece of horror cinema.

The film opens in 1462, with Vlad Dracula (Gary Oldman) returning from war against the Turks to find that his beloved wife, Elisabeta (Winona Ryder) has killed herself upon receiving false news of his defeat and death. When the priest tells him that her soul cannot be saved and will be forever damned by her suicide, Vlad renounces God in a fit of rage. He desecrates his small chapel, stabbing a stone cross and drinking the blood that begins to ebb from it, embracing eternal life and damnation at the hands of a merciless god.

Recommended New Books on Filmmaking: ‘Blade Runner 2049,’ Francis Ford Coppola, David Bowie & More

It’s been a stellar year of cinema and pop culture-themed books, and the texts (and Blu-rays) in this round-up all make fine gifts. One additional book that should be on your year-end list is Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier. It’s a satisfying companion to season three of Peaks, not to mention Frost’s own Secret History of Twin Peaks. So be sure to check out Nick Newman’s recent interview with the Peaks co-creator.

Live Cinema and Its Techniques by Francis Ford Coppola (Liveright)

The legendary Francis Ford Coppola has spoken of “live cinema” with regularity over the years, specifically with respect to 1981’s One From the Heart. That film, a box office flop now held in some regard, is an essential part of Live Cinema and Its Techniques, a fascinating new book authored by Coppola himself.

The Furniture: 25 Years Trapped in Castle Dracula

"The Furniture," by Daniel Walber, is our weekly series on Production Design. You can click on the images to see them in magnified detail.

Bram Stoker’s Dracula turns 25 years old today. It is, appropriately, not dead. Not that a film can die, exactly, but this one has held onto its toothy vigor with particular success. Even the ridiculous way Keanu pronounces “Bewdapest” still charms. Eiko Ishioka’s Oscar-winning costumes seem simultaneously ancient and way ahead of their time. The same goes for the Oscar-winning makeup, which transforms Gary Oldman across centuries with bewildering commitment. The visual effects, which went unnominated, remain thrilling, a dizzying phantasmagoria of cinematic shadow-puppetry.

But I’m here to rave about the only nominated category that the film didn’t win. Production designer Thomas E. Sanders and art director Garrett Lewis were nominated, but they lost to Howards End. Hard to argue with that, of course.

Batman: Gotham By Gaslight Trailer Promises An Awesome Animated Outing

DC’s Elseworlds series were some of my favorite comics as a kid. Why would I want to get wrapped up in the stodgy, never-ending plots of Death and Return of Superman or Knightfall when I could enjoy Batman becoming a vampire in Batman & Dracula: Red Rain, a Communist Superman in Red Son or the weird alt-dc Universe of Jla: The Nail?

The originator of this label was Brian Augustin and Mike Mignola’s excellent Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, which transposes Bruce Wayne/Batman to the late 19th century and has him tangle with Jack the Ripper (and was subsequently ranked as the 11th greatest Batman graphic novel of all-time by IGN). Clearly, someone at DC agrees with me, because 2018 will see the arrival of an animated adaptation of the story and, from the looks of the trailer above, it’s going to be awesome.

Apparently hewing pretty close to the original,

First Look at Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder in Destination Wedding
Bloom has released the first-look image of Keanu Reeves and Academy Award Nominee Winona Ryder in Victor Levin's Destination Wedding. This romantic comedy was first announced at the end of August, marking the fourth collaboration for Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder. They first appeared on screen together in the divisive 1992 movie Bram Stoker's Dracula, before reuniting in 2006 with the Philip K. Dick adaptation A Scanner Darkly and 2009's The Private Lives of Pippa Lee. As you can see in this photo, their characters Frank and Lindsay seem to be getting along well, chatting over some wine, but that wasn't always the case.

Destination Wedding tells the story of two miserable and unpleasant wedding guests, both pariahs at this affair, who develop a mutual affection despite themselves. But to act on those feelings would be to trust hope over experience, a foolish choice indeed. Over the course of the weekend and against all odds,
