The first two installments in the highly anticipated new “Castlevanias” film franchise were released on digital platforms this week, with “The Curse” opening in U., UK, Ireland and Australia.
The upcoming third installment will launch in New Zealand and Canada.
While the film opens on digital, it will also debut in limited theatrical release on November 3, 2019, with a limited run of 2,000 tickets to go on sale on the first day.
The first screenings will be held at the Cineworld Cinema on Sydney’s Bondi Beach on October 30, 2019.
While we still don’t know much about “Castle Darkness” beyond the cast and the story, we do know it will be directed by Timur Bekmambetov, whose previous films include “Gravity” and “The Babadook.”
The “Castles” franchise also includes the popular series “Kingdom Hearts,” which will be released in 2019.
The film is set in an alternate timeline in which Dracula is still alive and the events leading up to the events of “Castel Darkness” are never fully explained.
In “Castille Darkness,” Dracula is defeated by an army of “Evil Children” led by a mysterious woman known only as the Black Black Cat.
In the new film, Dracula returns and is once again killed by the Black Queen, a mysterious girl who takes over the Castle.
She has a long-standing friendship with Dracula, and he and the Queen help each other to defeat the evil children.
The new film stars Michael Fassbender as Dracula, Anne Hathaway as the Queen, Martin Freeman as the evil child Queen, Michael Shannon as an old man who helps the Queen defeat the Black Children, Helena Bonham Carter as the King, Joel Edgerton as the Witch and a host of other cast and crew members.
It also stars Elena Anaya as the “King” of the Castle, and Jaden Smith as the Bishop.
