It was only just yesterday we brought you the first US Trailer for Timur Bekmambetov’s ABRAHAM LINCON VAMPIRE HUNTER based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s mashed up novel and tonight we have some more ‘axe-fu’ action in the shape of a new international trailer.
In the new trailer we do still get the Johnny Cash “When A Man Comes Around” much of the same action from the previous trailer however this trailer is slightly longer which includes some dialogue from Dominic Cooper. We also get our first glimpse of Mary Elizabeth Winstead as the first lady Mary Todd Lincon but once again we still get the serious straight up tone to it however any sane person or anyone of who has read the book knows this is a ridiculously silly fun film. I still like the look of this film and this is only the first trailer so there’s still time to show off the fun element.
President Lincoln’s mother is killed by a supernatural creature, which fuels his passion to crush vampires and their slave-owning helpers.
Abraham Lincoln is reinvented as a vampire-killing president in this Timur Bekmambetov-directed action picture starring Benjamin Walker, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rufus Sewell, and Dominic Cooper. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies author Seth Grahame-Smith adapts his own book for 20th Century Fox. Tim Burton produces alongside Bekmambetov and Jim Lemley.
