It was only a matter of time before a movie was made, based on Seth Grahame-Smith's New York Time's bestselling book, Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter. The book which spawned this legendary cover (which poses as a decoration in my house).
The movie has been in the works for some time now, and now we have an official trailer to enjoy. There's a lot of Lincoln action, mixed in with some old time US imagery. With my favorite moment occurring at the (1:06) mark.
The reaction on Twitter seems to be divided, with some who 'get it', while others are frowning upon it...
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter trailer. Yes. So much yes.
Beyond excited for ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER. Playing it deadly serious makes it so much funnier. Why the apprehensive response?
ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER looks like the stupidest movie ever made, so I'm going to be there opening day, Movie Pass in hand.
Abraham Lincoln as a vampire hunter. Yes. Good. My life is complete.
Really ? Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter ? Rally ? Tim Burton ? smh
I'm getting old and cranky, I think, because 90% of trailers look like previews for fake movies to me. cc Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter
While I'm in league with those who are beyond excited for the movie, I still scoff at Hollywood's need to feature licensed music in every trailer they release. I love Johnny Cash as much as the next guy/gal; it just doesn't get me excited for this movie.
