Enough already with the f@cking vampires!
Above is the trailer for a film adapted from a book written by Seth Grahame-Smith about a fictional portrayl of Abe Lincoln as a vampire hunter. This isn’t even a joke and it’s not scheduled for the DVD bargain basement bin of your local supermarket either. For it will receive a full, glitzy international box office release.
The plot rattles around like so:
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.
Cowboys and aliens, moon Nazis and now a historical President who hunts the undead. Robot Chicken might be right is this the future of Hollywood?
