Finally we have our first look at actual footage from the highly anticipated film Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter! The footage was shown during an interview with the film's star Benjamin Walker on CBS. The full trailer for the film is set to be released tomorrow so stay tuned for that!
The film was directed by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) and stars Walker as Abe Lincoln. The story focuses on the president who after having his mother murdered by monsters, is on a quest to rid the world of the evil vampires. The cast also includes Anthony Mackie, Jimmi Simpson, and Mary Elisabeth Winstead. It's an adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's awesome novel.
Here's the Synopsis:
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is a re-imagining of the 16th President's life that depicts him as an axe-throwing, highly accomplished killer of vampires -- an obsession of his since those bloodsuckers supposedly took the life of his mother. Lincoln eventually learns that the vampires have fled to the southern states of the U.S. and are concocting a plan to conquer and enslave the entire country -- this in turn leads to the Civil War between the Union and the Confederacy, the latter of which the vampires are aligned with.
The movie is scheduled to hit theaters on June 22th 2012. Check out the footage below and tell us what you think!
