In ” Dracula Untold ,” Luke Evans stars as Vlad Tepes, a normal dude who wants to protect his family and people from an encroaching army. Completely natural, right? Old Vlad is outnumbered, so he visits a totally innocuous-seeming creature living in a cave in the side of a mountain for some advice. Of course, this creepy critter (who is played by none other than Charles Dance , aka Tywin Lannister) offers him quite a deal

All Vlad has to do is drink blood from some poor schmuck’s skull to gain all sorts of cool new powers
HBO is remastering classic series “The Wire” in high definition, though plans for an upcoming rebroadcast are murky at best. A new teaser promoting a “replay marathon” of the show on HBO Signature promised to broadcast every episode from the series — which ran for five seasons from 2002 through 2008 on the cable network — beginning later this week. The episodes are set to be remastered in HD for the first time. But while HBO confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that there are indeed plans to remaster the series, the promo promising the marathon would start on September 4 “ran prematurely,” and the network does “not have further information regarding the timeline” of when such a rebroadcast might occur. While that might be a bit of a bummer for fans of the series hoping to catch it on the air once again (or for those who never saw it the first time who want to shut up their friends who tell them they have to watch it) there are still several ways for viewers to screen the show
Kevin Costner ‘s character catches a lot of grief from fans and football experts for his unorthodox decision-making in ” Draft Day ,” and this deleted scene from the flick — appearing as an extra on the film’s DVD and Blu-ray releases, out today — shows just how far that unhappiness flows. The clip, premiering today exclusively on Moviefone, begins with Costner explaining how the public has been “beating up” his general manager character, Sonny Weaver, over his draft day plans, and how he can’t seem to catch a break from anyone. While the scene Costner’s describing was ultimately scrapped, it perfectly encapsulates a female fan’s frustrations with her local football team — but more importantly, the people in charge of it. In the scene, Sonny pulls into a gas station only to be berated by the fan in question, who warns him that if he “screw[s] up this draft, [he]‘ll screw up our team,” and eventually the entire city
New ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ Teaser Debuts, Alongside First Full Look at the Cast (PHOTO & VIDEO)
It seems that with each passing day we’re given some new morsel of information, or maybe a visual or two, pertaining to this upcoming season of ” American Horror Story ” (this one with the truly blood-curdling subtitle of “Freak Show”). When the series isn’t busy winning Emmys (congrats Jessica!), it’s engaged in the tease, getting us prepared for a new season that takes place in a community in Florida known for its rather freaky inhabitants. Today we have a new teaser for the season, plus the first image of the entire cast in full regalia. The photo comes courtesy of the Hollywood Reporter , but is damnably low-resolution, so a lot of what we’re describing is educated guesswork. But in the photo you can see Sarah Paulson as a two-headed woman, Michael Chiklis as a strongman, Kathy Bates as a bearded woman, Angela Bassett as a woman with three-breasts (seriously! Look at the photo), and Evan Peters as some kind of doo-wop greaser.
Best of Late Night TV: ‘Friends’ Reunion, Jennifer Aniston Likes Breast Milk, Awkward Ice Bucket Challenges (VIDEO)
If you’re like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don’t worry; we’ve got you covered. Here’s the best of what happened last night on late night. The women of “Friends” staged a surprise mini reunion on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” after Kimmel pleaded with guest Jennifer Aniston to act out a “Friends” fan fiction scene he wrote
We’ve often wondered if the uber-talented Daniel Radcliffe made a deal with the devil, but we never thought we’d actually see him don a pair of horns. In ” Horns ,” Radcliffe stars as a the main suspect in the rape and murder of his girlfriend Merrin Williams ( Juno Temple ). Ig Perrish wants to find the monster that killed the love of his life, he wants to absolve himself, and most pressingly, he wants to figure out why the heck he’s growing horns. As if his new bony growths weren’t weird enough, he also finds that whomever he encounters tells him their darkest secrets and desires, no matter how horrifying or humiliating
If you’ve ever wanted to see Homer Simpson get squished by a Tauntaun or yeti or something in the name of charity, your wish has been granted. The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has wended its way through social media over the past month or two, prompting all sorts of people to dump buckets of ice water over their heads to raise awareness of Lou Gehrig’s Disease, aka amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Of course, awareness isn’t the only thing it’s supposed to raise; the challenge is supposed to inspire people to make a donation to the ALS Association. You can actually make a donation without pouring a bucket of ice water over your head, as per Patrick Stewart’s charming video, but where’s the fun in that? No matter how cynical you might be about watching cartoon characters shiver after being doused by ice water, you’ve gotta admit it’s been an effective way to raise funds.
Of all the horror franchises, one of the most bafflingly resilient is ” The Amityville Horror .” And the trailer for the latest film has just debuted and will probably send a chill or two down your spine. The original film came out in 1979, starred Margot Kidder and James Brolin and was based on the controversial 1977 nonfiction best-seller by Jay Anson, who moved into 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville, New York, and immediately claimed to be terrorized by otherworldly visitations. (These supernatural situations were supposedly connected to a mass murder that happened in the house in December 1975, when Ronalde DeFeo shot and killed six of his family members while they slept.) From that one, admittedly cheesy film (slime? Has slime ever been scary?), there were seven (!) sequels and a fairly straight-faced remake in 2005 that starred Ryan Reynolds and Melissa George . (There were even a couple of sequels after that; this new film is the twelfth in the entire series.) The wonderful Shout Factory recently packaged a deluxe HD box set of all of the films (and if you’re any kind of horror fan, you should definitely pick that up).
