New trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter! Too silly to take seriously?

Curiosity certainly is a big factor in my interest in wanting to see ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER, I mean it is about Abraham Lincoln battling vampires … how could one not be curious?

The second full-length trailer has hit, and it certainly looks like a lot of fun. I can’t help but notice the serious tone to things that look and feel absolutely silly. It is hard to say how the film will play out, but I kind of like this serious edge. I mean I can’t take it seriously because it is so silly, however it may actually work in its favour. Scope it out below and decide for yourself.

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 Seth 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.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER stars Benjamin Walker, Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie, Rufus Sewell, Mary Elizabeth Winstead (below), Jimmi Simpson, Robin McLeavy, Alan Tudyk and Martin Csokas. The hunt goes underway on June 22nd!
