‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ Red Band Trailer Shows Honest Abe Getting Down and Dirty (and Bloody)
Poor ‘lil Stevie Spielberg. Come Oscar season he may have a tough act to follow with his Daniel Day Lewis-starring Lincoln pic, the one which probably won’t feature Lincoln’s finest achievements: chopping off vampire heads, marrying Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and getting Anthony Mackie to somehow be your sidekick. All in all, that’s quite the life, as this bloody red band trailer for Timur Bekmambetov’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter shows.
Check out Abraham Lincoln acting like a “mad man”:
If there is a true wild card this summer, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is definitely that wild card, making it all the more exciting to see how the film’s turned out. Will audiences embrace the idea of a serious film about Abe taking heads and dealing with naked vamp ladies or will they scoff like how every (grumpy) old person reacts to the trailer in a theater? Some have already been predicting it as this summer’s Jonah Hex, but Bekmambetov is too competent and stylish to make a film that wretched, moronic, and ugly.
