Honest Abe goes to town on lots of vampires in a new, bloody Red Band trailer for “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”. The premise of the film is still goofy as hell, but the fact that they’re playing it super straight may be what saves it. Or dooms it. Honestly, I can’t tell you.
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.
Starring Benjamin Walker, Anthony Mackie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Dominic Cooper, Rufus Sewell, Alan Tudyk, Jimmi Simpson, Jaqueline Fleming, Erin Wasson, and directed by Timur Bekmambetov.
