NEW ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER TRAILER HITS THE WEB

Opening in theaters on June 22, the Timur Bekmambetov-directed film stars Benjamin Walker, Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jimmi Simpson, Robin McLeavy, Alan Tudyk and Rufus Sewell.

20th Century Fox has also put out a new press release:

Abraham Lincoln, in the guise of actor Benjamin Walker, who portrays the 16th president in the summer movie thriller ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER, and the film’s cast and crew, will visit the sailors serving aboard the Navy aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln in June.

 As history’s most beloved U.S. president and, according to the movie, its greatest hunter of the undead, Walker will be joined aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln by co-stars Anthony Mackie and Erin Wasson, as well as by the film’s director Timur Bekmambetov, screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith and producer Jim Lemley. Walker will introduce a special screening of ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER for the thousands of sailors serving on the carrier, and the cast and filmmakers will distribute Lincolnesque top hats, as well as fangs – tools that will help the sailors decide, in the words of one of the film’s promotional taglines, if they’re patriots or vampires.

 In addition, the sailors will receive movie tie-in edition books, provided by Grand Central Publishing, and special graphic novels conceived by Bekmambetov.

 The cast and filmmakers will screen the film at two additional bases at undisclosed locations.

 “We’re very excited that 20th Century Fox and Navy Entertainment wanted to provide ABE’s crew the opportunity to preview the new ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER movie while we’re out here on deployment,” said Capt. John D. Alexander, Commanding Officer of USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72). “We’re extremely fortunate that the studio wants to give us an early showing. It’s something that we’ve never experienced before on this ship, and we’re extremely grateful for their willingness to share this with our sailors.”

 “This is really exciting for me to meet the ABE’s crew and screen for them our film ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER,” said Benjamin Walker. “I hope it brings them excitement, goodwill and a taste of home.”

 Added the film’s producer Jim Lemley: “We are pleased and proud to have this opportunity to visit with the men and women serving on the USS Abraham Lincoln. We hope they enjoy our film and know how much everyone in the United States appreciates their service.”

SINK YOUR TEETH INTO THE ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER RED BAND TRAILER

So what do you think of the new red band trailer for ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER? While it brings a certain intensity and gore, ramping up the violence level to 11, I still can’t say I’m very impressed. The title alone is atrocious, and another in a long line of ridiculous mashups such as PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES (also being developed for the big screen), but I’m not going to be one of those assholes who judge the merit of a film by the title alone. The two trailers released for the film so far, however, even with the fantastic amount of violence within the most recent of the two, just isn’t doing it for me. Other than the ridiculous premise of Abraham Lincoln spending his early days as a kung fu master vampire hunter (albeit a successful one), the CGI looks incredibly distracting and cartoonish. I understand the necessity of CGI when it comes to certain things but I will never, EVER abide computer generated blood.

Produced by Tim Burton, Directed by Timur Bekmambetov, and written by Seth Grahame-Smith based on his novel of the same name, ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER hits theaters June 22.

SYNOPSIS:

Grahame-Smith’s revision of the secret life of our greatest president, and the untold history that shaped our nation. As a young boy, Abraham Lincoln witnesses the shocking death of his mother, leading him on a path to an ongoing war – and ultimately to the presidency – he chronicles in a hidden diary. The journal reveals the incredible story of a clandestine warrior who never stopped fighting for the country he led and the people he loved.

NEW INTERNATIONAL ‘ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER’ POSTER

Ah, what can I say about ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER other than I find the idea appalling at best, and a sickeningly vile attempt to cash in at worst. That being said, however, if you’re unfamiliar with some of the details of this nightmare, let me fill you in. The film is directed and produced by Timur Bekmambetov (NIGHT WATCH, WANTED) with producing duties also picked up by Tim Burton (whose films you’re aware of if you’re reading this and who, I’ve come to believe, has gone insane).

The film will star Benjamin Walker (narrowly beating our Nicholas Cage which is a real shame as, given the insane idea behind this flick, would’ve been perfect for the role) as ‘ol honest Abe himself. Also starring are Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rufus Sewell, Jimmi Simpson, Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie, Robin McLeavy, Alan Tudyk, Marton Csokas, and Cameron M. Brown. Opening here in the U.S. on June 22 (an odd time slot), the film explores the secret vamp-killing life of our 16th president, and the untold history that shaped our nation.
