20th Century Fox has finally released their first teaser-trailer from the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's historical horror book Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. I really enjoyed this book and was excited they were making it a feature-length film. After viewing the trailer, however, I have to say... I was hoping for better. While the action scenes look pretty exciting, I think over all it looks a tad bit cheesy, which is a little disappointing. I'm sure I'll see it, though, as I'm always down for a Vampire flick. I'm definitely interested in seeing how this turns out. Regardless of its "cheese" factor, I do think this is a well cut trailer - short and sweet, never giving too much away. Anyway, take a look!
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter explores the secret life of our greatest President, and the untold story that shaped our nation. Visionary filmmakers Tim Burton (this time, producer) and Timur Bekmambetov (director of Wanted) bring a fresh new voice to the blood-thirsty lore of the vampire, imagining Lincoln (played by Benjamin Walker) as history’s greatest hunter of the undead. Look for this movie to hit theaters in 3D (no less) on June 22, 2012.
