What commonly happens during San Diego Comic Con panels is video footage will be shown to those in attendance while we who do not make the pilgrimage either hope a rebellious member of the crowd films it on their phone or we wait patiently for the studio to release the footage online. NBC has just done the later by putting up the trailer for upcoming horror show Dracula.

It’s the late 19th century, and the mysterious Dracula has arrived in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. He’s especially interested in the new technology of electricity, which promises to brighten the night – useful for someone who avoids the sun. But he has another reason for his travels: he hopes to take revenge on those who cursed him with immortality centuries earlier. Everything seems to be going according to plan… until he becomes infatuated with a woman who appears to be a reincarnation of his dead wife.


Dracula will make its debut on NBC October 25.

    Sexy Dracula? Of course, he’s supposed to be. Sexy Renfield? Eh… okay, I suppose, if he and Dracula are buddies now I think some of the sexy might rub out on him, sure. Sexy Van Helsing? No! No way! Come on people that just never works.

    Wait, Dracula is American now? COUNT Dracula is American? Do we have counts? I don’t recall ever hearing about that. And does this mean no more accent? Or is he just POSING as an American? Because it’s getting a little insulting that movie producers are afraid to make their lead character be foreign because we couldn’t POSSIBLY watch the show if he was…

      I do not know if the blurb above was up when you posted, but it does say this:
      “Dracula has arrived in London, posing as an American entrepreneur”
      So it seems he isn’t truly an American, simply posing as one for his assumed identity.

    I’m really not sure what I think of this yet. On one hand, I actually love novels that show a different take on Dracula (everything from slight variants of the original story to completely different retellings and even a couple of “The book was fake, this is the REAL story” type books), but there is something about the trailer I dislike and I just can’t put my finger on it. Doesn’t mean I’ll dislike the show itself, there is just something about the trailer that is offputting to me.
