New Red Band Trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Beheads Everything in Its Path
Posted 05.25.12 by Ryan
From the beginning, the adaptation of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has seemed like yet another fun, summer blockbuster featuring an iconic former President who secretly led a double life where he would vanquish the undead at night while running the country by day (you know, that old tired premise). The trailers for the movie have shown that extra 3-D surcharge could even be worth it, showing Lincoln (Benjamin Walker) jumping, twirling and taking his axe-wielding justice out on nearby trees and (briefly) on Vampires.
If that wasn't enough to sway audience, the newly released red band trailer for the movie should entice, as it gives audiences what they want as it shows several scenes of Honest Abe beheading every undead vamp in his path. We might be jumping to conclusions, but that is what audiences want, right?
We should warn that the trailer doesn't skimp on the blood factor, so watch at your own risk.
Based on the best-selling novel by author-screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Unholy Night), Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter was directed by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) and produced by Tim Burton. Mary Elizabeth Winstead co-stars as Mary Todd Lincoln, the President's wife, while the cast includes Anthony Mackie as William Johnson, Lincoln's friend; Dominic Cooper as Henry Sturges, Lincoln's fanged mentor; Rufus Sewell as the main vampire antagonist Adam; and Robin McLeavy as Nancy Hanks Lincoln, Lincoln's mother.
