See a Cheesy Memorial Poster for 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'
We've already gotten a couple glimpses of the forthcoming historical horror flick Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter adapted from Seth Grahame-Smith's novel of the same name, but no trailer has surfaced yet. Honestly, with no footage showing up and the film still set for release this summer, I'm a little worried this film is just going to be a disaster. However, in the meantime, some buzz is slowly being built and a new poster using the iconic Lincoln Memorial from Washington D.C. as inspiration tries to do just that. It's pretty cheesy, but if the film is going for tongue-in-cheek horror and action, it could work. See it below!
Here's the poster for Timur Bekmambetov's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (via The Daily Blam):
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.
