The trailer opens up to Dracula (played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers) and R.M. Renfield (played by Nonso Anozie) discussing the missing ahead of them. Then opening up to a grand Victorian ball in London. The guests are all anticipating the arrival of Alaxander Grayson an American entrepreneur, including Mina Murray (played by Jessica De Guow) and her fiance Jonathan Harker (played by Oliver Jackson-Cohen).
Renfield announces the arrival of Grayson who is actually Dracula. He dazzles the crowd with a show of how electricity can light up the room. Dracula makes his way through the crowd until he meets Mina. They both get the feeling of having met before. Only Dracula sees a flashback to when his wife was burned alive.
Dracula must find a way to seek his revenge on those who turned against him. All the while he must fight the urge to turn Mina into a vampire so they can be together once more. Will Dracula get revenge on his enemies? Or will his growing obsession with the reincarnation of his dead wife cause him to fail?
