Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter images, posters, trailers & behind the scenes. Phew!

March 21st, 2012 by Marc Comments

We are quietly getting more and more excited about this movie… Abe Lincoln, versus vampires, direted by the man behind Day Watch, Night Watch and Wanted and produced by Tim Burton? OK, maybe the Tim Burton thing not-so-much as he has fallen from grace recently, but everything else? For sure.

So as a little bonus article, we’ve posted images, posters, a behind the scenes and BOTH trailers so far. We love how it’s shaping up.. it looks like the movie Van Helsing should have been.

From the press release:
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter explores the secret life of one of the greatest US presidents, and the untold story that shaped a nation.
Visionary filmmakers Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov (director of Wanted) bring a fresh and visceral voice to the bloodthirsty lore of the vampire, imagining Lincoln as history’s greatest hunter of the undead.
Director: Timur Bekmambetov
Screenplay by: Seth Grahame-Smith, based on his novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Producer Tim Burton
Cast: Benjamin Walker, Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
