New Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Poster
And some fresh pics...

We’re still a few months away from the release of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and there’s no sign of a trailer just yet, though MTV has gone behind the scenes. But the team behind the film are looking to keep it in our minds with a new poster and a couple of fresh images, all of which you can see below.

The poster, which arrives courtesy of the IMP Awards site, is a familiar riff to anyone who saw the two promotional pieces that arrived a month ago. Using the Lincoln memorial, this one continues to push the basic idea: that Lincoln, before and during his tenure as the 16th President of America, learned of the existence of vampires and fought to defeat their evil fanged plots at any cost.

Benjamin Walker is the man in the muttonchops and stovepipe hat, who swears revenge after his mother is killed by a vampire. Lincoln gets a little help from friendly fanged fellow Henry Sturgess (Dominic Cooper) and must face down the evil Adam (Rufus Sewell), who is working with slave owners to supply human fodder for his fellow nightwalkers.

Along the way, we get to see Lincoln develop into the presidential figure remembered through history and get a peek at his personal life, including his marriage to Mary Todd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead).

Wanted’s Timur Bekmambetov is behind the camera for this one, with Seth Grahame-Smith adapting his own genre-mashing book. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter will be out on August 2, when the big question will be whether it can prove to be more entertaining than its title. The new pictures come via Germany's Movie-Infos.

RE: I'm kinda looking forward!
t waiting to see if they keep the fact that Lincoln was a bigot and a racist, as well as a warmonger. But I doubt it. incoln was no more a racist than virtually any other white person alive at that time. While many sought the abolition of slavery, it's also true that most of those people would have been aghast at the idea of full equal rights or an integrated society. Lincoln is a complicated figure, at times over praised in the USA, but to suggest he was a "war monger" isn't at all a More

Hopefully this strange little idea will work and won't be anything like the aweful Van Helsing or that even worse Twishite saga! The idea and story that they've come up with sound fun so hopefully they put some worthy effort into the script with some decent characters and some evil vamps! I thought the vamps in 30 Days of Night were pretty effective so hopefully they will go along those lines. More
