Will there ever be a Dracula Untold 2?

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

Dracula Untold is an American fantasy horror movie that was released in 2014 by Universal Studios. The movie cost $70m to make and even though it can be seen as a box office success bringing in over $217m worldwide, it still received widespread criticism in terms of reviews of the storyline. Even though this is the case many fans loved the film and the performance of Luke Evans as Dracula, who received praise for his performance and wanted to see a release of ‘Dracula Untold 2’, but is this ever going to materialise?

When Dracula Untold was released it was billed as the first film in the rebooted monster movies films franchise by Universal, a plan which appears to have disappeared in the subsequent years. Dark Universe was the name given by Universal to their planned ‘cinematic universe’ and Dracula Untold was supposed to be the first attempt at this universe. Since the film was released however it’s connection with the shared universe has been downplayed. Universal who announced plans to reinvent The Mummy franchise in 2012, made the decision to reposition this as the first film in this series instead.

Dracula has always been seen as one of the favourite monsters so it is quite surprising given this that Universal decided to step away from this and wouldn’t want to further develop the story of one of the most powerful and popular movie monster stories in history. The potential for the character is evident through releases such as various Dracula board games, video games and even an online video Dracula slot game that is available to play on many reputable casinos. In fact, Unibet online casino has confirmed this game title is one of the most popular amongst its slots players.

Last year Luke Evans, who plays Dracula stated in interviews that he hoped that his character would still have a part to play in the ‘Dark Universe’. He stated he hadn’t yet heard anything about a second instalment but would still love to be involved. Nothing in the Mummy story actually disregards any part of the Dracula Untold story, so it is still possible that Universal could circle back round to it and explore a sequel. The problem is that with the exception of the strong performance from Evans as Dracula there isn’t much more that is very memorable about the film, meaning that Universal may not want to associate themselves with this version of Dracula in the future.

In fact, the whole future of the Dark Universe is questionable due to 2017’s The Mummy being on the receiving end of mainly negative reviews and the planned Bride of Frankenstein reboot also put on hold for the time being. Due to these factors, it becomes more difficult to envisage a Dracula Untold 2 in the works anytime soon.

There are no plans at present for a Dracula Untold sequel, but this doesn’t mean it will never materialise. It seems a shame that Universal wouldn’t want to continue with such a powerful character that really has the potential to resonate with audiences.

  12. Just rewatching it now fantastic film and luke evans is perfect for the role

  13. How much did they pay this Josh Drew ( writer of article) to make us believe that this beautiful movie didn’t have a sequel because it had negative reviews. Everyone I know who watched this movie loved it and is dying for a sequel. This was an excellent movie!. Everything about this movie was great. The people want Dracula Untold 2. Luke Evans was excellent in this movie. The movie left me wanting more.

  14. Best version of a Dracula film I’ve ever seen. Still one of my top 10 favorite films to this day. The way they portrayed Vlad (Dracula) as not being the FIRST vampire is what gives this story so much free reign. They can go anywhere with it. Continue the story in today’s world , or have a prequel and describe how the FIRST vampire came to be. Please SOMEONE make a part 2 ….please!!!

  15. Please please please do a sequel..watching again tonight for the 6th time.love it ❤️

  16. Its not fare untold 2 plz

  17. Comment pliz can we have universal making the 2nd part.”let the games begin ..”

  18. In the next decade I will be coming into a very rather large inheritance if they make Dracula untold in that time frame when I become of age I will give 25% to donations or find anything they desire that is how much I love Dracula untold and for those of you who think this is fake it is very real I assure you

  19. It’s been years but i’m still hoping for part 2, no one would waste time reviewing this movie if this wasnt great… This is an AWESOME MOVIE! Part 2 please

  20. Please make a sequel with Luke Evans. I don’t a single person that disliked Dracula Untold. I just had a bunch of friends over and this is the one movie that I have that everyone agreed to watch. The only thing that upsets everyone was that there isn’t a sequel.

  21. I dont understand. The movie made 200 and something million. Stop pu**y footing around and give us a sequel.

  22. Excellent movie! Please make a sequel with Luke Evans!!!

  23. I have watched this movie 7 times by far one if not the best Dracula Movie ever.. LOVED IT!! Maybe Netflix will make the sequel now that they are playing it…

  24. Who decided this wasn’t a good movie? It was fantastic. I’ve watched it numerous times and have googled countless times waiting on a sequel. Some people can’t stand hearing a few negative reviews but I think this movie far outweighs the negative. Plus you can’t leave it open like that and not finish it. “Let the games begin”

  25. I’ve watched this film countless of times and would love to see a sequel, I can’t wait to see the 2nd one of the film it’s a fantastic movie would love to see a sequel of the film it’s the best movie I have ever seen and I’ve watched Dracula 2000 2001 2002 and watching this made me love it, how can you not make a sequel I’ve seen comments saying it would be good to see a sequel, so I don’t know how people can say it was a terrible film you can’t just leave it at “let the games begin” and not make one I would really love to see this universal studios please I beg you to make a second film you would be getting millions with people purchasing the movie you will make a killing if you make it as good as the first film with the same cast/actor such as Luke Evans he was incredible for the role so please make a sequel I don’t know how many times I have to say sequel though haha but it would be good to watch when I first watched it I thought to myself oh my god it’s going to be terrible as the trailer to the film is really really good and then boom watched it and I was like wow that’s fecking awesome and then I watched again and again and it always has me hanging of the edge of my seat when he says “let the games begin” over time and into the real world I think there is a lot of fans out there that are into such films and who ever likes the film or even loves the film just try your hardest to beg your hearts out to universal studios or any other film network that will actually agree to make it so please I beg of you make the 2nd movie, the only reason why people disliked the mummy is because it was an okay film but not everyone wants to watch the mummy we’ve watched the mummy the mummy returns and the mummy tomb of the Dragon empirer now you basically start it again we don’t want to watch the mummy again with different actors were more interested in Dracula, wearwolfs, Frankenstein, zombies and mainly something to drive you off your seat and scare the living shit out of sorry for my language but it’s true people want to see Gore, blood, scary, something to make you scream or the girls scream or the boys scream and something that is going to make you want to watch it stop making the trailers look absolutely amazing and the film being completely shit we don’t want the film to be poo we want to see the film look amazing and great and some people tend to watch the trailers of the film before it coming out so please could you make an amazing scary film please and please can you make a sequel to Dracula untold pleaseeeeee!

  26. Please please please make part 2, I’ve watched this film a number of times and I would love to watch part 2.

  27. Dracula untold 2…

    ABsoulutely….oh my word what an amazing performance by Luke Evens.

  28. Make a sequel!!!!!!

  29. There will never ever be an actor who will perfect this movie as much as Luke Evans did. He is an amazing actor. Having someone else replace him wud be so boring. so please, make a sequel with Luke Evans as Dracula. plz.

  30. Still waiting for part 2!!!! Am waiting……

    • Me too lol

  31. I watch this movie every time it shows on tv, I own the DVD and I watch it at least twice a year! We all need/want a part 2!! Please please someone make it. Besides you all left us on a cliff hanger! What game is going to begin???? And why does it seem as though he’s going to be mean to Vlad? I mean Vlad did make it so he could come out of his cave right? Ugh these are the questions I need answered. 🙂

  32. I bought this movie on blue ray and it is absolutely my favorite dracula movie ever ! The games have began…..let them continue! I want to see what happens next! I am a member of several online horror fan sites and millions of people want a second dracula untold! Universal I encourage you to heed to what your audience is asking for. If you film it we will come !

  33. If they were not going to make a part 2 of Dracula untold,why would the ending portrait a part 2 is coming? #so unfair.

  34. Will Bill Condon do a Russell Crowe as Dr. Henry Jekyll and remake the Mummy, Dracula, Wolfman and Bride of Frankenstein for Dark Universal?

  35. This is an amazing movie. I think they were fools not to make a sequel immediately after this one released. Absolute fools…. especially when I think of all of the absolute crap sequels that are made …. this movie was well made, written and I happen to like the twisted thought of a GOOD Dracula not to mention the mysterious character that is freed at the end of the movie I’d love to see how they interact afterwards…. hoping they are a good pair of guys that only kill bad people though..lol
