The premise for ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER sounds humorous, doesn’t it? Our nation’s greatest president killing scores of bloodsuckers. This could be kind of funny.
Someone should tell Timur Bekmambetov. The first teaser for his film features absolutely zero humor. In fact, it seems packed to the gills with action and dark violence. It doesn’t look bad just very serious. That’s right, a very serious film about Abraham Lincoln slaying vampires.
Regardless of its odd tone, this trailer is sure to get people intrigued. I wonder how many of those people will laugh when they see the title.
ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER stars Benjamin Walker, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Anthony Mackie and Dominic Cooper. The film opens June 22nd.
