There is still two months to go before the UK release of director Timur Bekmambetov’s glorious looking film, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, but the trailers keep on coming. I am certainly not complaining though!
The latest green-band trailer is not a patch on the violent red-band trailer which arrived the other night, but that is to be expected. This new trailer is a little more talky than what we have been used to, but it is still exceptionally cool and full of Bekmambetov’s unique vision and style. Check the trailer 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.”
