Abraham Lincoln, Superhero?

Posted by Tim Sheehy on May 3, 2012 in Cinema, Horror |

I know we’ve been posting quite a few trailers lately, but this latest featurette for Tim Burton’s big screen adaption of Seth Grahame-Smith’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is definitely worth watching. 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.

There’s also a little bit of discussion between Grahame-Smith, producer Tim Burton and director Timur Bekmambetov — no, I have no idea how to pronounce his name — where they actually compare Lincoln to a comic book superhero. I’m not sure why they felt the need to do this, but it could have something to do with the popularity of recent superhero films or the upcoming releases of The Avengers and Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. It’s lame, I know, but when studios invest so much money in these productions, we should expect to see just about any marketing ploy you can think of. Let’s just hope it lives up to our expectations.
