The American people love the image of their President being a total badass. Think Washington crossing the Delaware, Harrison Ford telling those terrorists to, “Get off my plane!” We want our leaders to be ass kickers. And with that thought in mind, I think America is totally ready to embrace Abraham Lincoln as a vampire hunter.
Watch the new international trailer for Timur Bekmambetov‘s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, containing some new footage, below.
In addition to the new trailer there’s also a new featurette with short talking head clips from director Bekmambetov, producer Tim Burton, and others.
Based on the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, who also penned the script, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter stars Benjamin Walker as Lincoln, as well as Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Alan Tudyk, Anthony Mackie, Rufus Sewell, and Erin Wasson.
The film explores the secret life of our greatest president, and the untold history that shaped our nation. As a young boy, Abraham Lincoln (Benjamin Walker) witnesses the shocking death of his mother, leading him on a path to an ongoing war – and ultimately to the presidency – he chronicles in a hidden diary. The journal reveals the incredible story of a clandestine warrior who never stopped fighting for the country he led and the people he loved.
It opens in theatres nationwide June 22nd.
