ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER is absurd. I bet when Seth Grahame-Smith sat down to brainstorm, he thought, "I need to come up with the most absurd shit ever. Let's mess with history." It sounds like one of those ideas you get when you're high.

Be honest with yourself though, it's going to be a fun flick. "Did Lincoln just cut off that dude's head with an axe?" Yes, yes he did. Historical inaccuracies are something to be enjoyed. Plus, you get some eye candy with Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

A new international poster has popped up for the film. It shows Benjamin Walker as Lincoln on top of a train with an axe in one hand and his hat in the other. He is going to f*ck your shit up, son. The film is due to release June 22, 2012.

Check it out below.

Gonna be great

The book is a blast, I read nearly the whole thing on a flight from Boston to LA...you can't put the damned thing down! Greene adapted the book for the screenplay, so I know the heart will be there

This is gonna be incredibly stupid, over the top, unnecessarily gory, and entirely shallow. I can't wait.

I'm currently watching an old Hammer film called Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter. Not nearly as Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter will be. They should turn this into a series George Washington: Merchant of Death, Chester A. Arthur: Man from Mars, FDR: Ninja Assassin.

The best one there is George Washington: Merchant of Death. But considering that FDR: American Badass is being made, The Ninja Assassin should be either Reagan or Jefferson. And there needs to be Teddy Roosevelt: Dragon-Slayer!

The Idea

Seth Grahame-Smith actually came up with the idea (pre-Pride & Prejudice & Zombies) when he went into the bookstores -- every other day, there seemed to be a new Abraham Lincoln biography AND a new Twilight-esque teen novel. So naturally, he took two popular things and threw 'em together. Great read -- has to be a fun movie.

What made the book so much fun was Grahame-Smith's actual attention to historical fact, and then finding places within that otherwise faithful bio of old Abe to put vampires & axe-swinging action.

This is absolutely going to be a fun flick. Everything I've seen sofar is exactly what I'd hoped to see from a Bekmambetov adaptation of it. Can't wait to see what he does with some of the really freaky Civil War scenes.
