Trailer – Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

This upcoming movie does exactly what it says on the tin - and what's not to like about that?

It’s Valentine’s Day, so what better way to celebrate than with a kick-ass US president/undead movie mash-up. Who says romance is dead?


Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter does pretty much exactly what it says on the tin, telling the story of a lesser known side of the 16th president’s life – the side where he got medieval on a bunch of evil bloodsuckers.

The movie stars Benjamin Walker as the eponymous commander in chief, and also features Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Alan Tudyk and our own Dominic Cooper and Rufus Sewell. 

It’s adapted by Seth Grahame-Smith from his own novel – which may or may not be based on actual historical events – and boasts none other than Tim Burton as a producer.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is released in the UK on 2 August.
