Trivia: When Mina meets Dracula on the street, after she first rebuffs him, she walks past a sandwich board advertising a play with Henry Irving at the Lyceum Theatre. For many years, Bram Stoker worked as the business manager of the Lyceum Theatre, which was run by Irving. The famous stage actor is widely believed to be one of Stoker's inspirations for Count Dracula. (00:46:30)
Trivia: Gary Oldman also played the driver of the carriage that takes Jonathan to the castle. This is a reference to the novel, where Jonathan Harker notices that there are no servants in Dracula's castle and concludes that it must have been the Count himself who was the driver of the coach that brought him there.
Trivia: The marriage scene between Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder was performed by an actual Romanian Orthodox priest. Contrary to rumours this made the marriage legal, that wouldn't be possible without corresponding paperwork, which of course they wouldn't have had.
Trivia: This movie is filled with scenes showing how the laws of nature do not work correctly when in the presence of a vampire, such as liquid dripping upward, shadows moving on their own accord, etc. A more subtle example is the scenes where Dracula is standing outside the large French doors to Lucy's bedroom: When other people walk through the doorway or stand in front of the glass doors, there is a considerable height difference between their heads and the door frame, but when Dracula is standing outside her bedroom, he almost reaches the top of the door frame. (00:58:00 - 01:19:50)
Trivia: Anthony Hopkins plays the Greek Orthodox priest who tells Vlad that Elisabeta's soul is damned, the narrator, the voice of the captain of the Demeter, and of course, Van Helsing.
Trivia: Out of all the movies ever made about Dracula, this is one of the very few that depicts his downward crawl on the wall in Castle Dracula, as mentioned in the original Dracula novel by Bram Stoker.
Trivia: The Brides originally had many more scenes in the movie. There were flying scenes and many others. The actors were disappointed when they viewed the movie when it first came out. Especially the Medusa vampire, played by Florina Kendrick.
Trivia: Johnny Depp and Charlie Sheen were considered for the role of Jonathan Harker.
Trivia: Andy Garcia was considered for the main role of Dracula.
Trivia: The blood you see in this film is actually red jelly.
Suggested correction: Technically "Dracula Untold" is the highest grossing. (Although it only out-grossed this film by about $2 million, so it's close).
