I am so excited about seeing director Timur Bekmambetov’s stunning looking film, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, I can barely contain myself! I really do not need anymore convincing that this film is going to be something very special indeed, but I have now been re-convinced! (is that even a word?)
A red-band trailer made its way online earlier today for the visually amazing looking film, and you can view the spectacular trailer at the bottom of this post. The trailer goes some way to earning its red-band status as there is one Hell of a lot of bloodshed going on here. Good ol’ Abe swings and smashes his axe around as he chops, pummels and beheads his enemies in glorious style!

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.”
