I loved Timur Beckmambetov‘s Night & Daywatch films they signalled Russia’s first steps into FX/CGI infested waters that made the films popular worldwide. As the success came to the Russian filmmaker Hollywood came calling and despite going back to his homeland in between Tinseltown flicks those English language flicks haven’t lived upto the standards we expected. Let’s take his latest incarnation ABRAHAM LINCON :VAMPIRE HUNTER, the film based on the Seth Graham-Smith‘s novel of the same name, which most of us was lead to believe will be ridiculously fun film but the trailers and footage suggest this one is taking a serious direction.
If your like me finding it hard to believe hoping that fun element will be there might now be even more confused with this new behind the scenes featurette that actually attempts to promote this film as a legit Superhero film! We’re still expecting that cheesy dialogue which will make it so criminal not to watch this without having some bread with you . On serious note we hear Graham-Smith talk about his creation been a superhero flick in the summer which is been labelled the summer of superheros, even producer Tim Burton is comparing the film with Batman. In between the interviews we do get glimpses of new footage but most of all after watching this I feel more confused and feeling more negative about this film, but here’s hoping on August 2nd Abraham Lincon:Vampire Hunter will surprise us all! Film Stars Benjamin Walker , Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie, Alan Tudyk and Rufus Sewell.
