Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter Poster
Dark goings-on from Timur Bekmambetov

This new poster for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter puts old Abe (Benjamin Walker) front and centre in the movie's not-entirely-historical world. On a train, to be precise. A flaming death train. Well, this is a Timur Bekmambetov movie. It was never going to be the 16.47 to Wanstead.


Adapted from Seth Grahame-Smith vampire genre mash, Vampire Hunter sticks an axe into Abraham Lincoln's hand and no doubt sneaks a trick or two under that stovepipe hat, as the Prez tackles the massed ranks of the undead.

The vampire cohorts are led by the exceptionally nasty Adam (Rufus Sewell), while saddling up on Team Abe are wife Mary Todd Lincoln (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and his vampire-smiting guru Henry Sturges (Dominic Cooper). To recap: that's Howard Stark and Ramona Flowers versus the massed ranks of the undead. And AlanTudyk's in the mix as Stephen A. Douglas. Fight!

If you wonder what the 19th century would have looked like if, instead of penning Emancipation Proclamations and Gettysburg Addresses, Lincoln had spent his time killing the heck out of vampires, it's well worth a few moments of your time.

 

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is out on August 3.
