Universal Pictures' 'Van Helsing' Premieres and Releases in Digital Cinema Format

Universal Pictures announced today that the world premiere of "Van Helsing" on May 3rd at the Universal Amphitheatre will be a digital cinema presentation. This is the first time Universal will premiere using a digital projector and server system instead of using a film print.

Additionally, "Van Helsing" will be released digitally to 31 theaters nationwide as part of its wide opening to over 3500 theatres. This is the second digital cinema release for Universal, the first being "Jurassic Park III" in 2001.

About Van Helsing

Stephen Sommers, the innovative filmmaker behind the worldwide successes of "The Mummy" and "The Mummy Returns," now takes audiences to an action-filled, fantastical world, where the iconic monsters of cinema legend meet the famed monster hunter Van Helsing (Hugh Jackman). Charged by a secret organization to seek out and defeat evil the world over, Van Helsing is dispatched to the shadowy world of Transylvania to terminate the seductive and undefeatable vampire, Count Dracula (Richard Roxburgh). Anna Valerious (Kate Beckinsale), one of the last of a powerful royal family, is bent on avenging her ancestors and ending an ancient curse by killing the vampire. Joined by a common foe, Van Helsing and Anna set out to destroy Dracula along with his empire of fear. But in challenging an enemy who never dies, Van Helsing uncovers a secret he never imagined and comes face-to-face with the unresolved mysteries of his own enshrouded past. Universal Pictures will release "Van Helsing" on May 7th in theatres everywhere.
