NBC’s Dracula Series Gets A Trailer, Is Inexplicably Odd

After watching this trailer for NBC’s new Dracula series starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, I can honestly say I have no idea what they’re going for here. The trailer is, for lack of a better word, weird. Everything about it just feels…weird. And this is coming from a person who legitimately enjoyed Dracula 2000. It does have a few actors from other genre shows we enjoy though and it’s set to air Friday nights this fall. Will you be watching?

Too Lazy To Turn A Page? Read Classic Novels On A Poster Instead!

Spineless Classics (awesome name, btw) sells posters with entire novels printed on them. But can you actually read them if so inclined? “Hard as it may be to believe, each one of our designs contains the full text of the book. Where there are shapes in the design, the words wrap to the edges rather than being removed or shaded,” they write. “The apparent font size is roughly 4 point which is perfectly legible with the naked eye if you have 20/20 vision, or with light magnification if you don’t.” Check out what books like Harry Potter, The Hobbit, Dracula, and more look like when laid out flat.

NBC’s Dracula Casts Its Van Helsing

We’ve been keeping up with NBC’s Victorian London-set Dracula because… well, it looks like it could be interesting. Its supporting cast (Merlin‘s Katie McGrath, Game of Thrones‘s Nonso Anozie, Arrow‘s Jessica De Gouw) is delightfully geeky, too. And now that geek-friendly cast has two more members: Oliver Jackson-Cohen as Jonathan Harker and Thomas Kretschmann as legendary monster-hunter Abraham Van Helsing.

It’ll be a few years yet until I can read that name without shuddering. I blame you, Hugh Jackman.

Merlin and Game of Thrones Actors Join Arrow‘s Huntress on NBC’s Dracula

We previously learned that Jessica De Gouw, aka Arrow‘s Huntress, would be playing Mina Murray to Jonathan Rhys Meyers‘ Drac (or Alan Grayson in the show, because Dracula is an awfully conspicuous name) in NBC’s Victorian era-set Dracula. And now comes the news that the show’s gotten even more genre-tastic with the addition of two new cast members: Katie McGrath and Nonso Anozie.

Or Morgana from Merlin and Xaro Xhoan Daxos from Game of Thrones. This pleases me.
