Tim Burton‘s produced ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter‘ just got its first teaser trailer released.
The movie, directed by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted), is an adaptation of best-selling novel by Seth Grahame-Smith (who also did the screenplay). It tells a fictional story about the president’s vendetta against Vampires, that’s right. Lincoln hunts vampires. This is not a bio-pic, so don’t worry about inadequacies. The main character is played by Benjamin Walker. Here is the teaser trailer below
The movie looks like a lot of fun, and I quite liked 2008′s Wanted, it was so over the top that it was funny.
Here’s the official movie plot:
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.
The movie is going to be released on June 22nd, and I can’t wait to see it.
