Trailer Thoughts: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
With an ax in one hand and his signature hat in the other, the 16th president of the United States Abraham Lincoln (Benjamin Walker) slays vampires after witnessing the horrors behind the evil undead that roam New England and discovers their plans to take over the United States.
Adapted from the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” is a gruesome action flick based on the historic life story of our brave president and the fictitious discovery of a hidden secret.
A long line of ancestors has taken on the responsibility of being the vampire hunter and protecting mankind from blood-sucking vampires. Lincoln’s secret diaries document his discovery of the undead as a child as he witnesses his mother viciously slaughtered by a vampire. Vengeance and rage fuels his passion and newly found destiny as a vampire hunter.
Many years later, Lincoln is elected into the United States Senate, but discovers a demonic plan by the vampires to take over the United States. With a bloody ax as his weapon and a mysterious black coat to conceal his identity, Lincoln begins his mission to hunt down and destroy every vampire until none is left.
“Wanted” director, Timur Bekmambetov uses his flare for brutal action in “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” in the mist of dark, grisly producer Tim Burton-style graphics and visuals. With an exceptional twist on history, “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” is one to watch out for. Also starring, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rufus Sewell, and Dominic Cooper.
It is scheduled for a June 22 release.
