Today at Wondercon Fox released the second full trailer for Timur Bekmambetov‘s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. The first teaser trailer was all mood and hints of action. (Appropriate for a teaser.) This one is all about Abe: we get a narration from Benjamin Walker, who plays the Railsplitter, and start to learn just why he hunts vampires.
In addition there is plenty of Timur Bekmambetov’s signature action style. Anyone who saw Night Watch or Wanted will recognize his touch instantly. See the footage below.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter also features Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Alan Tudyk, Anthony Mackie, Rufus Sewell, Erin Wasson and Dominic Cooper, just to name a few. It opens on June 22nd.
The film explores the secret life of our greatest president, and the untold history that shaped our nation. As a young boy, Abraham Lincoln (Benjamin Walker) witnesses the shocking death of his mother, leading him on a path to an ongoing war – and ultimately to the presidency – he chronicles in a hidden diary. The journal reveals the incredible story of a clandestine warrior who never stopped fighting for the country he led and the people he loved.
