Even though the story to director Timur Bekmambetov’s new film, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, sounds pretty freakin amazing, the visuals look even better! Coming from the director of such visually striking films as Nightwatch, Daywatch and Wanted, here the director seems to have taken things up a notch.
I have been talking about this film for a while now, and the reason for stating the obvious above is to prepare you for the following Russian trailer. The entire trailer is in Russian, but it is the visuals and incredible special effects you have come here to see, right? This new trailer, running at just over two minutes, has a ton of new scenes for you to be amazed at, check it out at the bottom of this post!

Directed by Timur Bekmambetov and produced by Tim Burton, the film stars Benjamin Walker, Rufus Sewell, Dominic Cooper, Alan Tudyk, Anthony Mackie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Robin McLeavy. You can see the film in UK cinemas from 2nd August.
“The new movie follows Lincoln (Walker) from his boyhood on the frontier through his assassination by John Wilkes Booth and — because this is a vampire story — beyond.
Young Lincoln, having learned that his grandfather and mother were killed by vampires, vows to kill every last blood-sucker in a country that is crawling with them. On realizing that vampires are tangled in the slave trade, Lincoln’s resolve grows and takes on a moral dimension. To complicate matters he also learns that the creatures come in two varieties, good and bad.”
