Abraham Lincoln Battles Vampires on a Train: What More Do You Want?

Posted by Ben Huber on Jun 16, 2012 in Cinema

Our strange fascination with Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter continues. This new clip from 20th Century Pictures gives us a straightforward look at some of the action scenes in the upcoming film – and yup, it still looks ridiculously silly. But despite all this coverage I can’t quite seem to pinpoint exactly how I feel about this. I’m neither turned off nor enamoured by the over-the-top action. It works fine and is choreographed well enough that you can see what is going on, but while the idea of fun is there, I still get a sense of emptiness to the whole affair. I guess we’ll find out on June 20th when the film releases!

Red Band Trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Is Over-the-Top

Posted by Ben Huber on May 27, 2012 in Cinema

Tim and I have had a strange fascination with the upcoming film Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. It looks pretty ridiculous, but I’m in the camp that it needs to be fairly tongue-in-cheek. This red band trailer, though, looks to be pretty serious in tone. I mean, a shotgun-axe is pretty silly, but they’re handling it pretty casually. But maybe that heavy-handed seriousness will add to the hilarity. We’ll find out when Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter arrives in theaters on June 22nd.

So far, the trailers for the film have featured plenty of special effects, and fast cuts of the film’s over-the-top action sequences, but until now, we really haven’t had a close look at the actual fights between Lincoln and the vampires. This small featurette gives us a glimpse at some of the axe-play you can expect from the film, as well as plenty of never-before-seen footage from the upcoming film without really spoiling anything.

I was skeptical when a movie adaption of Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter was announced. Sure, it made for a fun book, but let’s face it, so much gets lost in translation when most books hop over to the big screen. I’m honestly surprised this film got much of a budget at all, given how terrified many studios seem to be of new ideas. Why make something original (well, an adaption of something original) when you can churn out another sequel? The answer is simple, I think: vampires. Read more…
