Another Trailer for 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' Gets Historical
"There is darkness everywhere, Mr. Lincoln." While the previous trailers for the adaptation of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter mix ridiculous action with wha seems to be serious drama (that recent red band trailer actually was the most bad-ass), a new trailer actually gives the film more historical context and makes it feel a little more grounded in reality (if that's even possible). Using Abraham Lincoln's famous Gettysburg Address as voiceover for most of the trailer with some impressive cinematography, some scary vampires and our villain played by Rufus Sewell. Could this maybe be a sleeper hit this summer? Watch!
