Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter explores the secret life of our greatest President, and the untold story that shaped our nation. Visionary filmmakers Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov (director of Wanted) bring a fresh and visceral voice to the blood-thirsty lore of the vampire, imagining Lincoln as history’s greatest hunter of the undead.




Starring Benjamin Walker, Rufus Sewell, Dominic Cooper and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is set to hit theaters June 22nd, later this year.

not digging it

It is such as silly idea but it looks so cool.
Bandrews1 - 3/17/2012, 1:30 PM
Looks decent.
WolvieCBM - 3/17/2012, 1:31 PM
Is this the official release? Or the one from yesterday when someone jumped the gun, and this YT user uploaded it on his channel? Haha.

Looks okay, I guess.
PaulRom - 3/17/2012, 1:33 PM
Not sure if it's the official release, but it came from the TrailersAddicted channel.

wish it was in HD?)
WolvieCBM - 3/17/2012, 1:37 PM
Yeah I know. But it has IGN logo, so I'm guessing it's the one from yesterday.

@Intruder
not a bad idea on that" Martin Luther King: Werewolf Slayer" thing
HeyVanity - 3/17/2012, 1:42 PM
I've got to agree. It looks pretty awesome, but the premise is just too [frick]ing stupid. I don't think the general public's really going to embrace this one. Looks good, but FLOP.
PaulRom - 3/17/2012, 1:45 PM
Last we heard about Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, Craig Gillespie dropped out. Wouldn't be surprised if the project's dead by now.
TheSoulEater - 3/17/2012, 1:46 PM
See, my teacher didn't believe me when I said Abe Lincoln did this stuff
Mrcool210 - 3/17/2012, 1:57 PM
eh, maybe ill see it
Ranger14 - 3/17/2012, 2:04 PM
HeyVanity@ I agree. Joe Q. Public is never going to buy into this one. It will attract vampire and comic book fans and that is about it. I am a vampire and comic book fan, but the premise is just a little too out there for me, and by that I mean using a revered president to play this kind of role.

Why do movies like this get made and people expect them to make a profit. If it was strictly a Abraham Lincoln movie with a name actor the general public may be interested. But you have Abraham Lincoln fighting vampires? People will laugh at the thought and not take it serious. I know i did. Can't wait for The Asylum to spoof this one.

Looks interesting anywho. I'll wait for video.

Oh, and they're using that sound from Transformers and Avengers...BUHWOWNN!!

Yeah Ax-Gun won me over

shadearts - 3/17/2012, 2:23 PM

StrangerX - 3/17/2012, 2:27 PM
meh!!! The book seems to be much better entertainment.
Rodimus9 - 3/17/2012, 2:40 PM
Ironman53@ watch "the Human Centipede". It'll really make your day.
Rodimus9 - 3/17/2012, 2:42 PM
Or "Chillerama".....you'll thank me later. ;-)
LucasMend - 3/17/2012, 3:00 PM
Seems good to me
theomegasanction - 3/17/2012, 3:03 PM
think the premise is so out there that I am actually into it. just hope it is bad ass, and looks like it could be. fingers crossed
mainstream05 - 3/17/2012, 3:06 PM
It still looks like it's taking the concept way too seriously.
AlexDeLarge87 - 3/17/2012, 3:30 PM
Looks fun! :)
But i would have prefered a little bit more realistic take on the action scenes.
I mean Lincoln might be killing vampires yes i a proof that but hell he isnt a goddamn ninja!xD

Take this for example. Its pretty badass.
thetrojan - 3/17/2012, 3:46 PM
theres something missing and i reckon its simple

HE SHOULD HAVE THE BEARD
I am not familiar wi the novel,but when he walked in on silhouette in the main trailer,i got it,but no beard...
interesting that people are laughing at the trailer in cinemas,do they see it as it is?

still ....its a great time for movies is it not.?
thetrojan - 3/17/2012, 3:47 PM
and i really like parts of the book trailer..well the beard is what i like.
SpideyQuad - 3/17/2012, 3:53 PM
I can see it now, “who chopped down the cherry tree? Bitch!

LINCOLN DID
UncleDrew - 3/17/2012, 4:15 PM
This movie looks so stupid to me
Alexandre - 3/17/2012, 4:18 PM
you guys think this guy couldve been cast as superman instead?
FEJ - 3/17/2012, 4:20 PM
One thing is cretain, the vampires lost.
OnSluts - 3/17/2012, 4:49 PM
@Rodimus9

There is a serious Abe Lincoln movie coming out this year with Spielberg directing and Daniel Day-Lewis starring. So the "general" public can get their Honest Abe while we get our Bad ass, axe wielding, parkour master Abe Lincoln. I'm happy with both movies and will gladly watch them both.
Rodimus9 - 3/17/2012, 5:43 PM
OnSluts@ yeah, I remember seeing that on IMDB. Watch it make more money...LOL!!
batfan175 - 3/17/2012, 9:20 PM
lol this looks stupid.
mstaley3000 - 3/17/2012, 10:30 PM
Ignoring the Abe Lincoln part, this looks like a really good action period vampire movie.

marvel72 - 3/18/2012, 5:29 AM
i'm gonna watch it,it looks watchable at least.
nickh0801 - 3/18/2012, 7:40 AM
Once again, the movie won't do the book justice. The book was a great read. It looks like the movie will make Abe look more like a super hero than a normal person killing vamps. I'll still watch it, but I know I'm gonna be disappointed.
mgeoff88 - 3/18/2012, 1:57 PM
This looks surprisingly good. There is an understated awesomeness with the whole concept.

I didn't read the book, but the movie looks like it will be entertaining, for sure.
