The new movie, Dracula Untold, mixes fact and fiction to describe how the historical Wallachian Prince, Vlad Tepes, would become the vampire Dracula.

A stunning new trailer provides a tantalising glimpse at what looks to be a fascinating, epic origins story.

Other locations in Northern Ireland used for the new movie include Tollymore Forest Park in County Down; Leslie Hill in Antrim; Ulster History Park in Omagh; Mountstewart House in Newtownards; Divis Mountain; and Wolfhill Quarry in Belfast.

Environment Minister Mark H Durkan said: “We have wonderful landscapes in Northern Ireland. We are enriched with attractive country parks. Roe Valley is just one example and films such as this provide a great opportunity to showcase our natural beauty both locally and on a world stage.”
