Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter: First Posters - Undead Monday

Posted by Grey Monday, December 26, 2011

This Undead Boxing Monday, we take a look at the first posters from Timur Bekmambetov's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

It has been some time since we last mentioned Timur Bekmambetov's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter when Mr. Nine Inch Nail himself, Trent Reznor, was reportedly involved in the filming and scoring of the film based on the relatively well-received mash-up novel written by Seth Grahame-Smith. Of course, we all knew how that turned out with Reznor later confirming that he will not be involved in the film in any capacity.

That said, the film remained to be a peculiar one to watch out for in our undead and unhumble opinion. With two films on Abraham Lincoln coming next year, this is unabashedly the one we are more interested about given the heavy fantasy and supernatural elements as well as the visionary style of Russian director, producer and screenwriter, Timur Bekmambetov. Nevertheless, we are not taking anything away from Steven Spielberg and his biopic, Lincoln, starring Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln and based on Doris Kearns Goodwin‘s acclaimed non-fiction book "Team of Rivals". We are pretty sure it's gonna be historical accurate and acclaimed but we really like to see how an ass-kicking, vampire-hunting Abraham Lincoln looked like.

20th Century Fox has released a lenticular poster for the film via IGN. With no further ado, hit the jump to check out these posters.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

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.

Starring Benjamin Walker as Abraham Lincoln, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Mary Todd Lincoln, Lincoln's wife, and Rufus Sewell, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is currently scheduled to be released in 2D and 3D on June 22nd, 2012.
