20th Century Fox has released the two great official posters for the big screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's awesome novel Abraham LincolnVampire Hunter! The film is being directed by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted), and stars Benjamin 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 MackieJimmi Simpson and Mary Elisabeth Winstead.


Abraham LincolnVampire 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, and I can't wait to see it! What are your thoughts on this film project?
