NBC’s Newest ‘Dracula’ Trailer Doubles Down on Blood and Lust
After much time spent in development, NBC’s Jonathan Rhys-Meyers starring ‘Dracula‘ finally released its first trailer with its pickup announcement earlier this year. Now, following a brief preview of the re-imagined horror series this past week at Comic-Con 2013, NBC has made available the latest trailer for the Friday horrorfest, with a heaping helping of blood, and babes.
Set in the 1890s and described as a cross between ‘Dangerous Liaisons’ and ‘The Tudors,’ ‘Dracula’ finds the titular character (Meyers) arriving in London under the guise of American entrepreneur “Alan Grayson,” claiming that he wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. Instead, he seeks revenge on the people who destroyed his life centuries earlier, while falling in love with Mina Murray ( ‘Arrow‘ star Jessica De Gouw), a woman who appears to be the reincarnation of his dead wife.
Also present for NBC’s new Friday drama (premiering October 25 with ‘Grimm‘ season 3:) are ‘King Kong’ star Thomas Kretschmann in the role of Professor Van Helsing, Oliver Jackson-Cohen as Jonathan Harker, ‘Game of Thrones‘ star Nonso Alonzie as loyal confidante R.M. Renfield and ‘Merlin’ alum Katie McGrath as Lucy Westenra.
