    Did you by any chance see the recent Dracula Untold? I didn't, and reviews seemed to indicate a dreadful movie, but I'm still somewhat curious about what they did with Drac's origins. It's playing...

    Speaking of Cumberbatch, there was some question as to whether it was his voice we heard in the trailer, right? Sounded like him at the beginning. Later in the trailer, was that a different voice?
