Trailering Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (June 22) looks like pure Timur Bekmambetov with its mash-up of history and horror. The axe-wielding 16th president (played by Benjamin Walker) is personally obsessed with slaughtering vampires, who killed his mother and are fueling the Civil War. Looks like retro fun and fit for 3-D. Tim Burton, who exec produces, offers a witty intro in London while taking a break from his kitschy Dark Shadows vampire foray (“Prince Charles is actually a werewolf”), which you can view below along with the first trailer. The great Caleb Deschanel is the cinematographer and Craig Lyn is the VFX production supervisor. Weta Digital and Method Studios lead a contingent of VFX suppliers.
