Second Trailer for ‘Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter’ Shows Great Promise
This weekend Fox released the second full trailer for Timur Bekmambetov‘s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, over at Wondercon. This new trailer focusses solely on Abe, with narration from Benjamin Walker who plays the Railsplitter (and who thankfully beat out Nicholas Cage for the role). For the unfamiliar, the film based on the 2010 mashup novel of the same name and features Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Alan Tudyk, Anthony Mackie, Rufus Sewell, Erin Wasson and Dominic Cooper, just to name a few. ITimur Bekmambetov’s signature action style is clearly on display here, so fans of either Night Watch or Wanted might take interest. Here is the trailer. Enjoy!
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter opens on June 22nd.
Synopsis: The film explores the secret life of our greatest president, and the untold history that shaped our nation. As a young boy, Abraham Lincoln (Benjamin Walker) witnesses the shocking death of his mother, leading him on a path to an ongoing war – and ultimately to the presidency – he chronicles in a hidden diary. The journal reveals the incredible story of a clandestine warrior who never stopped fighting for the country he led and the people he loved.
