Two New Clips of ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ Unveiled
20th Century Fox has just released two kickass new clips for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Finally we get a little peek of the upcoming film! Check out the awesomeness below!
The first clip is titled “Real Power“, and shows a younger Abe being taught how to focus his anger into his slaying. Under the watchful eye of his mentor, Abe is pushed to release his strength. Check it out!
The next preview, which is titled “Waltz of Death“, is set in a gorgeous room and shows the badass President battling it out with a group of vampires. You can definitely see director Timur Bekmambetov’s flare in this clip.
Another fun bit of news is that Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter had a special screening at the USS Abraham Lincoln, which patrolled the Middle Eastern waters. Lead actor Benjamin Walker showed up in full costume of the iconic President and greeted the sailors aboard the Navy aircraft carrier.
“Becoming Abe abroad the USS Abraham Lincoln and walking the halls was an experience I’ll never forget,” Walker said. “It gave the sailors a chance to feel a bit of Hollywood magic that I hope they won’t forget either.”
More on the movie:
In the film, when young Lincoln learns his mother was murdered by a vampire, he writes in his journal, “henceforth my life shall be one of rigorous study and devotion. I shall become a master of mind and body. And this mastery shall have but one purpose…” Gifted with his legendary height, strength, and skill with an axe, Abe sets out on a path of vengeance that will lead him all the way to the White House. While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. Until now.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter hits U.S. theaters on June 22 and stars Benjamin Walker, Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jimmi Simpson, Robin McLeavy, Alan Tudyk and Rufus Sewell.
What do you think of the clips? Are you looking forward to the film?
Moonlight (aka Amanda) loves to write about, read about and learn about everything pertaining to vampires. You will most likely find her huddled over a book of vampire folklore with coffee in hand. Touch her coffee and she may bite you (and not in the fun way).
