Most people, not just Americans, will be familiar with Abraham Lincoln; this trailer, however, is something you would never expect.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter does exactly what it says on the title: takes American hero and president and turns him into a vampire hunter and savior of America before he even starts cutting down any cherry trees.
Produced by Tim Burton, the movie stars Benjamin Walker, Dominic Cooper and Rufus Sewell (Abraham Lincoln), all of whom appear in the trailer.
Lincoln, who discovers the existence of a vampire plot to take over America, becomes determined to eradicate the monsters for the last time.
The trailer pretty much covers all of that, along with a few snippets of the gorgeous and gruff tones of Johnny Cash, which have split viewer opinion straight down the middle. Some think it adds to the darkness and tension, others think it just comes a bit out of nowhere. Either way, it’s looking pretty epic but very entertaining.
But why don’t you take a look for yourself?
The movie has been on the cards for years; picking up and dropping cast and crew all over the place, but it is finally due out this August.
