Abe Lincoln’s secret life of vampire slayin’ and ax smashin’ before he rose to prominence as Prez of the United States will be revealed to all this Friday. But until then, check out two new behind-the-scenes featurettes that explore the making of the movie’s many, many action sequences. It apparently involves lots of CGI and director Timur showing off his genius. Or some such.

The film explores the secret life of our greatest president, and the untold history that shaped our nation. As a young boy, Abraham Lincoln 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.

The film stars Benjamin Walker, Anthony Mackie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Dominic Cooper, Rufus Sewell, Alan Tudyk, Jimmi Simpson, Jaqueline Fleming, Erin Wasson, and chops its way into theaters (and possibly your hearts) this June 22, 2012.
