Late this morning I received a package from UPS, and the first thing that came to my mind was “Ah, this is that cool stuff from THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN that every other blogger seems to be getting.” But of course it wasn’t. It was actually a cool promo package from upcoming action-adventure “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.” So instead of video blogging it, I just took a few pics from the package I got, which you can check out below.
The film directed by Timur Bekmambetov stars Benjamin Walker, Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jimmi Simpson, Robin McLeavy, Alan Tudyk, and Rufus Sewell.
Tim Burton produced the film.
“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” is a re-imagining of the 16th President’s life that depicts him as an axe-throwing, highly accomplished killer of vampires — an obsession of his since those bloodsuckers supposedly took the life of his mother. Lincoln eventually learns that the vampires have fled to the southern states of the U.S. and are concocting a plan to conquer and enslave the entire country — this in turn leads to the Civil War between the Union and the Confederacy, the latter of which the vampires are aligned with.
Check out the featurette, which has producer Tim Burton, Director Timur Bekmambetov and the cast talking about the film.
Also the featurette has some new footage from the film.
“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” will be in 2D/3D theaters on June 22, 2012.
