WATCH: Trailer arrives for Bram Stoker’s Dracula, back in cinemas next month for its 30 anniversary

September 28th, 2022 by Marc Comments

One of my all-time favourite – but completely bat-sh@t crazy – movies, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, directed by Francis Ford Coppola, is hitting the big screen again!

I still remember heading to the south of Ireland to see this as I was a bit, em, young and they were a bit, em, less strict at letting folks in down there. And I remember loving every second of it.

At the time, I was really into the art and craft of movie-making and Coppola deployed every bit of those in making this movie which just so happens to have Gary Oldman’s Dracula and Anthony Hopkins’ Van Helsing chewing – with great relish – every bit of the lavish scenery.

Honestly, I can’t believe it’s thirty years old but it’s an essential watch on the big screen if you can. Especially now that it’s in glorious 4k!

Adaptation of Bram Stoker’s classic vampire novel. Gary Oldman plays Count Dracula, a 15th-century prince, who is condemned to live off the blood of the living for eternity. Young lawyer Jonathan Harker (Keanu Reeves) is sent to Dracula’s castle to finalise a land deal, but when the Count sees a photo of Harker’s fiancée, Mina (Winona Ryder), the spitting image of his dead wife, he imprisons him and sets off for London to track her down.

Directed by Francis Ford Coppola
Starring Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder, Anthony Hopkins

Bram Stoker’s Dracula returns to UK cinemas from 7th October and in US cinemas on 23rd and 27th October at Fathom Events screenings

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
