    ^^[​IMG]^^ I meant Castlevania movie plot revealed!!!!!

    Well, I just read at ds.qj.net that the move plot was revealed.
    If I'm not mistaken Paul Anderson is still the producer and this as the link mentions is the official plot, here it is:


    It is the year 169. The land of Transylvania has been at peace for 100 years now, and the peasants and villagers have begun to purge their minds of the memories of the times when the lands were dominated by chaos and shadows, and when the undead walked the earth.


    However, there are those that remember that the evil Count Dracula returns every 100 years to plague the land, bringing with him the forces of Hell. Thus, one evening, the Prince of Darkness rises and returns to Castlevania, his ancestral home, calling forth his minions to purge the world of human flesh.


    The people cry out for a hero - someone to defend them from the evil desires of the count. Thankfully, they don't have to look very far, for within the land of Transylvania the Belmont line still lives, as Simon Belmont, great-grandson of Christopher Belmont, takes up the legendary whip called the Vampire Killer, and sets forth on his journey through the darkened countryside to the dark lord's castle.


    Upon arrival, the young man fights his way through legions of zombies, gigantic bats, and even faces Death himself, but in the end, he makes it to the Count and in a battle to end all battles, he comes out the victor. The price? The evil master places a curse of death upon Simon, which will lead him into a long and dangerous journey in the very near future.

    Seems really faithful to the story, I just hope they don't cast the Rock or the Undertaker for the main role. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The biggest question is, will Alucard be there?

    You never know though, what if it ends with a Phone booth like unaccomplished ending. What if Simon was killed?

    It better be good. Alucard probably won't be in it, and that's who I want to see the most!

    Well, its obvious that Anderson loves franchises, so expect at least 2 more Castlevania films if this one is even a little successful.

    How is this a spoiler? It's pretty much the story of the original Castlevania bulked up with background info. Hmm... looks like it's yet another movie that is purely for the eye-candy and hopeless acting only. I hope Simon Belmont complains about not being able to jump off stairs [​IMG]

    Wow outside of I think the date being a typo as 1690 would fit, not 169...that is so the plot line to Castlevania II: Simon's Quest for the NES.

    Simon kicks drac's ass after his 100 year rise. Upon dying (again) Drac curses Simon. Simon then goes on a perilous quest to remove the curse, blah blah blah... Wow. CV2 the movie...I'm in!

    yeah, that's what I thought 169 is a wrong year.
    First episode of the Belmont family start in 1095, when the Holy Whip is created.
    Castlevania 1 is in 1691 (when he got cursed ?), and Simon's Quest in 1693 (when he removed the curse).

    And for Alucard, he could be present, the date are good : dracula's wife and Alucard Mother lived in ~1450 and died in 1470. so he is already born in 1690.
    but I don't know which year it is, Alucard put himself to sleep, to not harm humans (or some other reason), and it's the dark power of Death that awaken him in 1797 (SotN).

    I made a chronological history order on the french wiki.
    There are some words you may not understand, but it's almost all the games titles at the end of the page.
    You can check the date here.

    (PS: The one in Italic are the game's officially removed from the series by Koji Igarashi to make a new logical order)

    I'm desperately trying to think of a movie tie in that didn't let me down before I start getting excited about this.

    I liked the first RE movie. On the other hand I didn't like any of Boll's
