OK, in a summer ruled by superheros this is one to watch.. .
FTN favourites Timur Bekmambetov and Tim Burton are behind this movie that tells the story of Abraham Lincoln’s secret life… as a vampire hunter. How cool is that?
This clip features Abe and his friends attacking a train full of vampires and while there’s nothing here we haven’t seen before it oozes style and looks fun. Which, let’s be honest, is really all we can expect. Next Friday, you know where FTN’ll be!
ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER will be released in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on Wednesday 20th June, 2012, day and date with the film’s US release.
Visionary filmmakers Tim Burton (producer) and Timur Bekmambetov (director) present an original take on the United States’ 16th president and bring a fresh voice to the bloodthirsty lore of the vampire. When Abraham Lincoln’s mother is killed by a supernatural creature, it fuels his passion to avenge her death. Statesmen by day, hunter by night, President Lincoln sets out to crush vampires and their slave-owning helpers. Based on the book by Seth Grahame-Smith, the film stars Benjamin Walker as Lincoln and co-stars Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Rufus Sewell.
