Bloody good red-band trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter runs for office

05.24.2012

Timur Bekmembetov's adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel, ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER has been all quiet on the marketing front as of late, so it's nice to get such a bloody good treat today in the form of a red-band trailer for the action/horror flick.

Starring Benjamin Walker (as ol' honest Abe), Dominick Cooper, Rufus Sewell, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Alan Tudyk, and Anthony Mackie, the historical fiction tale looks to be a riot.  But, you're here for the gore, yes?

Get bloody:

This is one I keep forgetting about, but not in an "AMAZING SPIDER-MAN" kind of way, but a, "Oh, shit, I forgot that's coming out...f*ck yeah!" kind of way. I know there has been a weak reception to some audiences who simply can't suspend disbelief enough to buy it, but my tongue is planted firmly in cheek and I'm looking for nothing more than a bloody good time at the movies.  I don't expect this to be a contender at next years Oscars.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER starts lopping off heads on June 22, 2012.

Extra Tidbit: I'm looking forward to Spielberg's Lincoln film as well, albeit a very different one than this. Either way, it's all comin' up Lincoln!

Looks fun, though Rufus Sewell is the kiss of the death. I like him enough, but other than the incredible Dark City, nearly every movie with him has stunk. Not his fault, just horrible agents.

I'm excited

Looks awesome. I really like this trailer as it gives you a sense of narrative, and is not just a random assortment of shots like previous trailers. Can't wait.

"Toddler sized fingers?" Wow. Just, random. And what meds should I be taking that would make me like The Amazing Spider Man exactly?

Looks like good fun. I'm sold. Anyone familiar with Timur's work will know how entertaining his bat-shit crazy action scenes are.

Something to make me excited for this film! Wasn't too sure about seeing this one in theatres before, but now I am. Looks like a lot of fun.

Jaded

Preacher praises this work of art. Green Lantern calls it a witty look on an alternate universe. Waterworld claims it will be a huge success. This, along with Spider-Man will be the biggest disappointments of the summer.

The through-the-roof levels of ridiculous are matched by the through-the-roof levels of awesome, in typical Bekmambetov fashion. Oh yeah.

With Gi Joe stupidly gone off this summer..it's gonna be the action ( does it count as an action flick?) guys gonna want for at least 3 weeks( maybe 4...Spiderman still seems to cater to the kiddies).

I can't wait for this. I think it looks great and Timur Bekmambetov was an inspired choice to direct.

I don't care if this looks cheesy, it looks fun as hell. Alot better than the green band trailer that we saw in theaters.
