20th Century Fox has released the first teaser trailer for Timur Bekmambetov’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter which stars Benjamin Walker, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Anthony Mackie, Dominic Cooper, Alan Tudyk, Jimmi Simpson, and Rufus Sewell.
Once you put the absurdity of Abraham Lincoln hunting vampires aside, it’s quite a cool trailer. There are plenty of slow-motion action shots the Wanted director is known for, and the big battle scenes look interesting. The Johnny Cash voice-over is also a nice addition.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter explores the secret life of our greatest President, and the untold story that shaped our nation. Visionary filmmakers Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov (director of Wanted) bring a fresh and visceral voice to the blood-thirsty lore of the vampire, imagining Lincoln as history’s greatest hunter of the undead.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter will be released June 22, 2012.
