Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

"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!

Here's the new trailer for Timur Bekmambetov's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter via MSN:

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.

Apollo This Picture is about Peresident-Night-Bloody Exotic Fights-Vampires-Axe and can be more even. This movie redefine action genre, change our appetite, stay with us for years. And strange thing is this is only Secondry movie of this Gigantic Russion Genius Still, what may come next? I wish Ethan says a question from Timur fan, they like what will be next project of him. I like "Moby Dick" , he promise that too.

I like the first trailer better. This one doesn't tell much, not exciting at all. Will go to see it though, thats for sure!

I dunno.  Timur Bekmambetov's career thus far has been very much style over substance for me, and this doesn't look much different.  A sleeper hit for the Summer?  Doubtful.

On one hand it has Tim Burton (+1) but on the other hand, the director of wanted (-1). Tough call.

 Wanted was a lil better than Alice in Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (and I'd imagine Dark Shadows too), but Burton was pretty damn good once. The most interesting career, working on this, has to be the writers'. You just don't see a body of work like that too often... infact its like a whole crime scene

Have to agree to disagree. I outright hated Wanted. And there is a special spot in my heart for Burtons work (some recent stuff not withstanding). But everyone has some flops, even the mighty Pixar, so I'm hopeful.

Mr.mcwetty I agree with you, but sleepy hallow(nearest example to Abe lincholn) was average work in Tim burtun works. I didn't see this trailer for spoiler but from previous pics I say this is better than sleepy hallow. Inother hand action in wanted not was cool? Action in Tim Burton works is not in ultimate mood. Very craft but not ultimate. Even in both batman of him story and atmosphere was greater than action. In mars attacks either. Tim Burton is visionary and atmospheric director but not superb in action. Planet of apes have weak action (for me). I think we didn't see action style like we see in wanted(train crash sequence was breathtaking,last dwel was brutal,intense,extreme) Totally agree with you, Burton is greater than Timur and I think your comparing is true but is soon for Timur. This is secondary film of him in us. I think he surprise u & m when movie release , trust on trailer BUT NOT MUCH
