Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter Trailer

Fairytales and revisionist history, that’s what the future brings.  Well, first up we have Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter in which the mutton-chopped, stovepipe-hatted slavery-abolishing President lays into scores of bloodsucking fiends.

It’s directed by Timur Bekmambetov who’s no stranger to stylistic violence (for good or for ill – Nightwatch is good, Wanted is a load of horse pucky) or for that matter vampires, so it’s definitely got that on its side.

So, we have slow-motion axe twirling, a slow-motion leap over a fire gorge and some seemingly huge battles (with more than a whiff of CGI about them).  As is customary for every trailer since Inception, there’s the blaring one-note horn which gets slightly faster by the end of the trailer – apparently all films since 2010 must, by law, be shot within 50 feet of a tugboat.

Looks relatively decent if fairly standard in the action/adventure genre.   And as there’s no real plot reveal in the trailer beyond “Abe Lincoln kills vampires”, there’s no really much more we can say.

It’s out in June.

StumbleUpon It!
