The next big vampire hit, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, is quickly approaching and that means lots of sneak peeks into what’s to come. We were recently treated to not one, but two, movie posters, and now we have another new one to share with you! But that’s not all! A recently released behind-the-scenes video also gives us some insights on the upcoming film.
Ben Walker plays the vampire-slaying 16th President of the United States in the upcoming big screen adaptation of the Seth Grahame-Smith novel. Walker takes on sharpened ax and a deep sense of vengeance as Honest Abe. The film, directed by Timur Bekmambetov, tells the story of Lincoln’s “secret life,” which involves hunting down and destroying as many vampires as he can.
Up first, the new movie poster!
While this is a fantastic poster, I have to admit that I like the previous two posters better. They had more of a dark and chilling impact than this one. Either way, this is definitely a great poster.
Here’s the behind-the-scenes video via MTV News:
Eee! That video made me even more excited for the film than I already was! It’s clear that the director has put some serious thought into the movie and isn’t turning it into some lame campy film. He picked a great cast to go along with this great story. I wasn’t too pleased with Ben Walker getting the role at first, but after this video I am definitely glad they picked him, he seems just perfect.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Mary Todd Lincoln), Anthony Mackie (Lincoln’s friend William Johnson) and Dominic Cooper (Henry Sturges, his vampire mentor) co-star in the film, which is due out in June 22, 2012.
