If you’re a regular reader you already know how much I enjoy going to the movies and seeing the latest and most talked about films. Well…on second thought, maybe I don’t really enjoy it as much as it seems – there just isn’t a lot to do where I live, LOL.
Anyway, since I saw the trailer for ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ I knew it would be one that I HAD to see; and reading up about how the movie came about has only made me want to see it even more. I never knew the 16th President of the United States could be so interesting!
The film is based on a novel (by the same name) published in 2010 by Seth Grahame-Smith, who also wrote the adapted screenplay for the film. Filming began in Louisiana (Louisiana has been popping for the film industry lately) in 2011 and is set to release on June 22.
Benjamin Walker stars in the film as Abraham Lincoln. Basically the story goes like this..Lincoln’s mother is killed by some type of supernatural creature, fueling his passion to hunt and kill vampires and whoever is helping their cause.
Yesterday in celebration of Memorial Day, 20th Century Fox released a new trailer for the film and announced that a special screening for US sailors will be held aboard the aircraft carrier, USS Abraham Lincoln in June (what a great PR move).
Watch the trailer below and let me know what you think!
