The first posters have emerged (via IGN) for Timur Bekmambetov’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, with Day and Night versions competing for your attention. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter reimagines the American president as an axe-wielding, highly trained vampire hunter. Seth Grahame-Smith’s book, on which the movie is based, gives new context to Lincoln’s rise to the presidency as well as the American Civil War (which was fought because the vampires were in league with the slave owners), suggesting these events were a lot more paranormal than history tells us, and stemmed from Lincoln’s mother’s murder by a vampire when he was a child. The film’s due in the UK on August 2nd, but for now enjoy the rather fun posters.
