‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ Trailer Makes Honest Abe an Action Hero

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter trailer
Twentieth Century Fox

‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ is a real movie.  And this is not, despite its ridiculous premise, something made on the cheap that will go direct-to-DVD. This is a big summer movie from Fox, produced by Tim Burton, directed by that guy who directed ‘Wanted’ and starring some familiar faces.  Based on the first trailer, it could either be awesome or completely stupid – so which is it?

‘Abraham Lincoln’ is based on the 2010 novel by Seth Grahame-Smith (who also wrote the genre mash-up ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’) that posits our 16th president was, in fact, a brutal hunter and killer of vampires.  Now we have a big-budget, 3D, action-adventure film based on that book coming this summer from director Timur Bekmambetov.  And while the title sounds jokey, the joke ends with the title, as Honest Abe dispatches evil bloodsuckers with the swing of his trusty axe. No word on whether he’ll be hunting possible immortal vamp Nicolas Cage.

Check out the brand new trailer below and wait for your history teacher to have a heart attack.
