A new International Trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter arrived on our doorsteps today! I present it to you below in all its history-warping glory!
Vodpod videos no longer available.
This movie continues to surprise me, as I like this trailer even more than the one we got here in the States! Again, what seems to make this film look so slick is that fact that it does not bullshit by taking its somewhat silly premise lightheartedly: This is dead serious vampire-slaying-Lincoln-starring awesomeness!
Oh yeah. Now this is what I’m talking about. Abraham Lincoln. Vampires. And a big ass Axe. It all gels together so nicely, doesn’t it?
In case you haven’t heard, 20th Century Fox and producer Tim Burton will bring us Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter this coming June. Judging by the unabashedly outrageous title, I expect a tongue-firmly-in-cheek mash-up of top hats and wooden stakes, which (if you are as big a horror fan like me) sounds delightful. I really do love a good (even often bad) horror movie. And I love it even more when a film knows exactly what it is supposed to be and embraces itself. Do you remember the scene in Inglorious Basterds where Omar and Donowitz unload a couple of MP40s into Adolf Hitler?? I kinda feel like, if done right, this movie could achieve that same “Anything Goes!” feeling for 90 minutes. We shall see…
June (unfortunately for us Prometheus fanatics) is still a long ways away. But to satisfy our presidential huntings of the undead, Entertainment Weekly has scored some cool pics that appear to be on location and in action! Check them out in the gallery below:
And I say why stop with Abe and vamps?! How about some Benjamin Franklin: Cyborg Slayer! Or Rosa Parks vs. Cthulhu!! Yeah!! Or give me a little Cowboys and Alie…oh…right. Okay, I’ll stop.
