Abraham Lincoln: Emancipator, Vampire Killer (Video)

A trailer has been released for what may be this summer's most original blockbuster:  'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'.  It tells the story of our sixteenth president as he hunts the undead and their slave-owning helpers.  It's based upon the 2010 novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, the author of 'Pride and Prejudice with Zombies'.

Man, does this look badass.

The film stars relative unknown Benjamin Walker as Lincoln.  It also stars Mary Elisabeth Winstead (Ramona from 'Scott Pilgrim'), Alan Tudyk, and Rufus Sewell.  It's directed by Timur Bekmambetov, who directed the mind blowing 'Night Watch' and 'Day Watch' vampire movies out of Russia a few years back.  It's going to be very interesting to see how he tackles the material from the Civil War era.
