A new trailer for Timur Bekmambetov’s “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” hit the web this evening, and it’s about what you’d expect. Upon hearing the title, one’s obvious thought is: How easily can America’s favorite president and America’s favorite film creature be merged? This trailer seems to indicate the answer is “Not very easily”–hence the lazy cross-cutting between the Gettysburg Address and the vampire action–but we won’t prejudge because Bekmambetov has done good work before. Also: the movie looks darn pretty. So there’s that.
“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” hits U.S. megaplexes on June 22.
