Yesterday the first teaser was unleashed for the action horror adaptation of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and while it delivered what most expected, something doesn't seem right about it still. Anyway, now there's an international trailer for the film, and while it's mostly the same, there's a whole new monologue from the film that Dominic Cooper delivers to Benjamin Walker's Abraham Lincoln. In addition, we also get our first glimpse at Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Mary Todd Lincoln. Again, I get the appeal of the film, but it seems to have too much of a serious tone for it to hit the right way. We'll see.
Here's the international trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter via Fox's YouTube page:
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 this summer.
