It has almost been six years since the release of Universal Picture’s reboot project Dracula Untold. And still, fans are eager to know whether they will ever see Dracula Untold 2 or not. Vampires and Draculas undoubtedly become the favorite genre of the viewers. And when they get to know, they will have the reboot of the 1897 Dracula film series, their excitement was on another level. But now it seems like they just have to satisfy their cravings with only one film.
Dracula Untold is an American dark fantasy action-horror movie. Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless wrote this film. It is a reboot of the 1897 Dracula movie series. However, in this film, the plot creates a different origin story. Universal Pictures released the movie on October 10, 2014. It turned to be a blockbuster and grossed $217 million worldwide despite having mixed reviews from the critics.
Will There Be Dracula Untold 2?
The details have been pretty vague on the sequel of the film. The creators or Universal Pictures never announced or accepted the existence of Dracula Untold 2. After the success of the debut film, it was speculated by the fans that there would be a sequel. However, the creators never announce it. Universal Pictures is changing their plans ever since the release of the film. Dracula Untold was supposed to be the first film of the Dark Universe. However, it was replaced by Tom Cruise’s The Mummy.
The first film concluded with a cliffhanger, clearly setting up the sequel. But after the mixed response and failed connection to the Universal’s Dark Universe, it is very unlikely that the fans will ever see the sequel. Luke Evans, the lead actor of the film, stated that he is open to return for the sequel. But there hasn’t been any solid news on the sequel since 2014.
Future Of Universal’s Dark Universe!
Right after the success of MCU, every studio is concentrating on creating their own universe. And just like that, Universal Pictures created Dark Universe. But since Dracula Untold 2 is off the charts now, what the future holds for this universe. It seems like after the original film, its sequel will also get replaced by another movie set in the Dark Universe. Whannels’s Invisible Man recently replaced Dracula Untold 2. However, it seems like the plan to create a universe full of mysterious monsters is now abducted. Because every single movie has its own personal entity.
Dracula Untold 2: Release Date
For the release date of the sequel, first the fans need to get confirmation from Universal Pictures. And if they agree to renew the project in the upcoming months, then the viewers can expect Dracula Untold 2 to premiere sometime in 2023 or 2024.
