As Spielberg currently films his take on the 16th U.S. president, Timur Bekmambetov is touching up his supernatural spin on Honest Abe. As such, two sleek and elegant lenticular posters for the ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER have just been published!
If you're wondering, the word "lenticular" has to do with the way different images appear from different viewing angles. In this case, the images are supposed to shift from light to dark (or vise versa), as to demonstrate the passage of time.
When Abraham Lincoln was nine years old, his mother died from an ailment called the "milk sickness." Only later did he learn that his mother's deadly affliction was actually the work of a local vampire, seeking to collect a debt owed by Lincoln's father. When Abe learned the truth, he vowed revenge and kept one passion hidden throughout his life: the brutal elimination of all vampires. His valiant, bloody fight against the undead was all but lost to history, until Grahame-Smith stumbled upon the secret journal of Abraham Lincoln.
Using the journal as his guide, Seth reconstructs Lincoln's life story and uncovers the role vampires played in the birth, growth, and near-death of our nation. You don't know Abe. Honest.
Starring Benjamin Walker, Anthony Mackie, Dominic Cooper, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Robin McLeavy, Rufus Sewell, Jimmi Simpson and Alan Tudyk - VAMPIRE HUNTER stakes out theaters June 22nd.
