Trailer: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

In a unique film that combines history and the glorified vampire crazy, Lionsgate has opted to bring Seth Grahame-Smith's best-selling novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter to the big screen.

The film tells the story of how Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States, uncovers a plot that reveals vampires are working to take over the country.  Now, with his back against the wall, he must work to elimate the threat and save the country from the potential terror.

While the film's initial release isn't for months, fans of the book, as well as those who have fallen victim to the vampire 'bite' now have your first glimpse of what you can expect when the polarizing novel takes theatrical shape.  Check out the trailer above for your first look at the highly anticipated film.

Starring Benjamin Walker as Honest Abe, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is set to hit theaters on June 22, 2012.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
