First official trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is here!

3 years agoby:

The much-anticipated first look at the Tim Burton produced ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER has arrived and it is beyond badass. I'll save my verbage for after the trailer.

Get your vampire huntin' on below:

Holy F*cking Awesome, Batman! This is oozing with style and atmosphere and I'm loving every frame. I'm sure some may be divided as there are those who just don't vibe with director Timur Bekmambetov's (WANTED) style. Me, I'm down with it and this looks great, assuaging my fears that we'd be served up something less than stellar. Obviously, I had no reason to be worried.

We'll find out for sure this summer when ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER opens on June 22, 2012.

Extra Tidbit: If you had to choose between Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter or Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, which would it be?

Not for me.

Perhaps if it wasn't Abraham Lincoln, I'd be more into it. I'm sure I'll still see it on Netflix.
Hope it meets everyone else's expectations.

Yeshua Ha-Notsri that looks good!
Who knew that this film's only problem (thus far) has been that it's not photogenic.

Didn't quite like his Russian movies (no clue if he made more) as well as Wanted, but so can't wait for this. Looks fuckin awesome.
And as always it just begs the question: Why the f don't more people do something cool visually in Hollywood?

Doesn't show too terribly much

but I'm just finally happy to see something for it. I like Timur. Night Watch and Day Watch were epic good times and yes, I'm a fan of Wanted and wished they'd a done a sequel shortly after the first. This is why we go to the movies boys...so yeah, I'm lookin' forward to this and P.S. D.D.L. will be a sure fire Oscar contender in Senor Spielbergo's Abe too.

Looking forward to this.

As for the tidbit question. Both. They are completely different and shouldn't be actually compared. Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter is going to be just silly fun. Steven Spielbergs Lincoln is just going to be epic.

In a completely none serious way this movie looks entertaining. The only problem I have with the trailer is that the action scenes looks a lot like they did in the horrible movie "The Three Musketeers".

Historically inaccurate, ridiculously badass!

Now we all know about Honest Abe's penchant for offing Nosferatu, that's just public knowledge and it's great to see that story get told on film (finally!).
But as any history geek could tell you the Washington Monument was only about 63% completed when The Civil War hit so why in the hell is it shown fully constructed in this trailer? C'mon, these Hollywood fact-checkers are just getting lazy ...

Looks fun, but I can't help but laugh at the use Johnny Cash dubbed over the Prometheus trailer music.
The Prometheus trailer just came out and they are already ripping from it.

Prometheus used the original Alien teaser score, which was amazing and completely original. Since Prometheus is a prequel to Alien, it seems like a fitting use of the music.

can not wait!

Timur looks to actually make me interested in a vampire movie for the first time in ages! Very much lookin forward to this flick, and kudos for the Cash. Can't wait to see the red-band trailer, from all that I've read BTS it sounds like a bloody fun time (and knowing Timur I don't doubt it!)

Meh? On the one hand Benjamin Walker looks better as Lincoln than I thought he would; on the other hand, I don't remember Vampire Hunter reading like a Hollywood action movie full of massive action set pieces...

Celebration on hold till R-rating confirmed.
Fuck you, it matters. It matters when the film is called Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, based on one of the goriest novels of all time.
Bringing in Simon "king of PG-13" Kinberg to rewrite the novelist's screenplay doesn't fill me with confidence. And this is a Fox film, from the fuckers who somehow reduced John McClane to a cartoon. So there's nothing sacred to them as far as raping source material goes.

Studios used to just make the damn movie and wear whatever rating they got. Now everything's focus-tested and pre-calculated - "we could make this much more in this demographic with PG-13" - it's fucked up. Even more fucked up is PG-13 apologists like your good self.

not me no, if a movie's good it's good, if it's not it's not. A PG-13 rating doesn't make a movie bad, and an R rating doesn't make it good.

Anyways, keep blocking cookies and wasting a bunch of your own time thumbs upping your posts so it looks like other people agree. You kinda went overboard with it man, a suggestion when you try to be cool and do that, at least keep the number reasonable so it isn't so obvious. lol

I agree with Captain Planet on this one. Not every movie should be rated r, but if the source material CALLS for the rating, don't hold back just to get more viewers. Expendables 2 is a perfect example. They didn't make it PG-13 for Chuck Norris, they made it so they could sell more tickets by making it available to people under 17. The problem is that by toning the movie down they're losing their core audience, which ISN"T the younger teens.

@ghostman - oh for sure, Chuck Norris is a douche and we all know that. What I'm saying here is that is Captain Planet actually cared about movies he would've read up enough on this one to know that it would very likely be an R as there's a ton of blood and gore in the script. That's all I'm saying. At the same time though he makes it seem like everything is initially an R and pushed down to a PG-13 when it's actually a rarity that that happens (though it usually sucks when it does). Anyways

YES thank you Cochise, I've been wondering if anyone besides me noticed how Cap here does nothing but talk about how it needs an R rating. It's pretty ridiculous, not every movie needs an R rating and crying about those non R movies is dumb. That seems to be the only thing that matters on whether or not a movie is good to him.

I know how it was shot, Cochise. But anything, ANYTHING, can be cut down to PG-13 these days. Nothing is sacred.

And because you are some kind of retard you'll reference a gory draft of the script that was written before Simon Kinberg came on to rewrite. Can't argue with stupid.

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I loved the book, and I loved Wanted so I trust Timur Bekmambetov with this. I love that he's bring his style to this movie, that's so important. I loved the book Choke but hated the movie because it had no style, it was just bland and boring to look at.

I'm still a little worried about the tone. I guess Cowboys and Aliens, which should have been fun, took itself too seriously. I hope this plays it right.
