[Trailer] – Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

19 Mar

We’ve already seen a first trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and on Saturday at WonderCon director Timur Bekmambetov debuted some new footage and a new 3D trailer from the film that depicts the story of how the 16th President of the United States saved his country from vampires. The new trailer, while still heavy on some pretty great action that will probably look cool in 3D, also drops some backstory that explains why Lincoln is so set against the vampires plaguing the nation he runs. 

The story will focus on actual real-life events and accomplishments by Lincoln, and will throw in the supernatural elements in the midst of that; with the panel at WonderCon describing it as a kind of superhero origin story. Produced by Tim Burton, directed by Timur Bekmambetov, written by Seth Grahame-Smith (adapting from his own genre-mashing novel), and starring Benjamin Walker, Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Opens June 22.
