The folks over at Empire have released the new poster for “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” based on the novel by Seth Grahame.
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.
The film 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 new poster below and let us know what you think.
“Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter” hits theaters on June 22, 2012.
