Check This Out: 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' Lenticular Poster
This isn't your average Spielberg Lincoln, oh no, this one carries an axe - for chopping down vampires! It's that time of year when movie posters are hitting left and right to start teasing the 2012 movie season, and here's another. Fox has debuted a poster via IGN for Timur Bekmambetov's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter that features actor Benjamin Walker as Abraham Lincoln, the Vampire Hunter. It's a lenticular poster and we have both versions, but when on display, the poster will fade from night to day viewing from different angles. I totally love the static design anyway, an epic tease for our 16th President vampire slayer!
Here's the two pieces of the Abraham Lincoln lenticular poster, put side-by-side for visual reference. Click on either for high res versions! We haven't seen any trailers yet, only a few first look photos so far. Cool?
This will look awesome in person fading from day to night. Benjamin Walker stars as Lincoln, and is joined by Anthony Mackie, Dominic Cooper, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Alan Tudyk, Rufus Sewell, Robin McLeavy.
President Lincoln's mother is killed by a supernatural creature, fueling his passion to crush vampires and their slave-owning helpers. A cross between D.W. Griffith's Abraham Lincoln & F. W. Murnau's Nosferatu.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is directed by Russian filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov, director of the Night/Day Watch series, Irony of Fate 2, and Wanted previously. An adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's mash-up novel of the same name, it was adapted by writers Seth Grahame-Smith & Simon Kinberg (of xXx: State of the Union, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, X-Men: The Last Stand, Jumper, This Means War). 20th Century Fox is bringing Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter to theaters in 3D starting June 22, 2012 next summer.
