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:
