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):

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter - Memorial Poster

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.

  • Looks so dumb. I'll watch it when it's on video.

    The poster may be cheesy, but if you havent read the book you should be more careful with how you describe a movie. Unless they are going in a completely different direction from the book it is not a tounge in cheek movie.

    Oh this depresses me. I think you're right in your hunch it will be a disaster. Sad day. 
    Lulz. Not. Even. Close.

    Don't judge a movie by its poster.

      I'll judge it by the novel: awful! unless the story gets a major overhaul, most notably, adding a palpable threat (ie main villain).

        I loved the novel.  But to each his own I guess.

          I have a knee-jerk dislike for stories that operate simply as a delivery system for a tidy lesson. Felt like I was force-fed the same thing over and over. Gag! He laid it on rather thick. Yeah, Seth, we get it: slavery is bad.

    Why is Lincoin sitting on his own memorial? Is he a Vampire too?
  • Lobo
    if instead of being the real Lincoln, would be the statue with the axe included then it would be a better poster
  • ABCD
    Damn, this poster should get axed down. By the way why make this in to a movie, has Hollywood ran out of ideas??
  • I love the concept of this film, but it could easily go bad in the execution..
  • Jeff Metzger
    Is this fan made? It certainly looks poorly shopped to me.
