Abraham Lincoln vampire hunter! Yes it’s true, good old Abe was a bit partial to slaying blood suckers! The first trailer for this Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Night Watch, Day Watch) and Tim Burton collaboration has hit online and I can only say that with these two guys all over it, it surely is going to be a fantastically gothic riot. Telling the story of The US of A’s most famous president’s exploits as a vampire hunter in avenging the death of his mother, it looks both sublime and ridiculous.
I have to say that this looks just about silly and outlandish enough to be absurdly entertaining. I think we may well need to leave our brains at the door when it’s released on 2nd August.
