Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter – New Trailer

If kids are to learn about the history of the Presidents of the United States, then what better way then to view a film about one of them, but these days the only way to guarantee an audience is to make sure your film has vampires!

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is actually based on the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, who also adapted the screenplay. This will be his second collaboration with Tim Burton to be released this summer, with Burton having produced the film (their first will be Dark Shadows).

Directed by Timbur Bekmambetov, the film is a wildly fictional account of the United States’ 16th President and his secret life as a vampire hunter, featuring Benjamin Walker in the title role. As with the teaser, we still get the Johnny Cash voiceover, reciting Revelations Chapter 6 (from The Man Comes Around), but now there’s a lot of impressive action, most of which involves an axe.

Are you excited? Could we be looking at imitations in the future, maybe Barack Obama: Terrorist Eliminator?

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter co stars Dominic Cooper, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Rufus Sewell. It is released in the UK on August 2nd and in the US on June 22nd.
