CATEGORIES Movie NewsDaniel Day-Lewis, eat your heart out? The first trailer for "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" has arrived (yes, this movie is actually happening), filled with grand speeches, old shots of Washington D.C. and our 16th President chopping down vampires with an axe.
Directed by Timur Bekmambetov ("Wanted"), the film follows Lincoln (Benjamin Walker) as he looks to navigate the country through a Civil War, where vampires in the South look to defeat the North, thus enslaving all of human existence. (Just as it's told in history text books!)
"Vampire Hunter," which is based on a book of the same name, stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Dominic Cooper and Anthony Mackie. It hits theaters June 22, 2012. And for a more balanced representation of Lincoln, you may want to look out for Steven Spielberg's biopic, starring Daniel Day-Lewis, which also opens sometime this year.
