That's one kick-ass President: ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER Trailer
Russian director Timur Bekmambetov impressed a lot of people with his fantastic vampire films, Night Watch and Day Watch, and again with his first english-language film Wanted, based on the Mark Millar/JG. Jones graphic novel. Now, backed by producer Tim Burton and writer Seth Graham-Smith, Bekmambetov is bringing us what sounds like the unlikeliest of stories: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

Today brings the first official trailer for the film. And it looks pretty fantastic. I know nothing about the book, but it looks as though Bekmambetov is going to bring some glorious style and action to the big screen, combining a little history with some fantasy and a whole lot of poetic action. The film will be released on June 22nd.

hmm I don't know about this, when did good old Able learn martial arts?
I mean I like the IDEA but I bet it would be better served as sort of hmmm "realistic".

I've read the novel and I really like it. It really runs on rule of cool and rule of funny. Then again, it's expected from the writer of Pride, Prejudice and Zombies. Anyone expecting "realism", should steer away from this movie. It's really does nothing other than entertaining the reader. Can't wait to see the scene where Abe is train by Henry Sturges.

Your right, it having him murder VAMPIRES with western boxing would have been much more realistic...

I found the teaser a bit underwhelming. Some of the imagery was cool, but slomo and speed ramping are SO overdone. Stylistically it looks like the worst parts of Wanted and the Underworld movies in a period setting.

And the mangling of Johnny Cash.

And the exploding tree trunk.

But...having said all of that, the premise holds so much potential and I'm already in line. But not for the 3D screening.

Looks at least as credible as "Iron Sky"
