WonderCon 2012 took over the Anaheim Convention Center this year, so more Hollywood studios were in attendance than in previous San Francisco-based editions. While there wasn’t a lot of newsworthy bits to come out of the panels this year, we did get to see a lot of footage from upcoming films: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Prometheus, Snow White and the Huntsman, Battleship and Rian Johnson‘s Looper.
After the con closed its doors, I recorded a video blog with /Film writers Germain Lussier and Adam Quigley, joined by Alex Billington from FirstShowing.net. We give reactions to all the footage we saw (with exception of The Amazing Spider-Man, since it was the same sizzle reel I posted about last month). We try not to go into descriptions, and instead just give you our reactions. Watch it now embedded after the jump.

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. Read More »
No matter whether you love Tim Burton or find him tiresome we’ve got a video that will play directly to either attitude about the filmmaker.
Fox recently premiered the Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter trailer at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum in Springfield, IL. Burton couldn’t be there, but he taped an introduction to the footage. It’s a weird thing, featuring a gag (I think it’s a gag, anyway) about a royal werewolf, and audio that seems to be intentionally out of sync. I’m not certain if the into is endearing or just flat, so I’ll leave that up to you to decide.
Also after the break is a short behind the scenes reel for the film that explains a bit of the film’s approach to creating the ‘secret life’ of Lincoln. There’s a bit of new footage in there, too. Read More »
Yesterday we got our first look at footage for Timur Bekmambetov‘s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, scripted by and based on Seth Grahame-Smith‘s novel of the same name. Now we’ve got a trailer for international audiences that has a lot more footage, and also offers some dialogue from Dominic Cooper. Check it out below. Read More »
Here’s the trailer for Timur Bekmambetov‘s adaptation of the Seth Grahame-Smith novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. The film features Benjamin Walker as Lincoln, but this is no stodgy biopic. Rather, it supposes that the 16th President was really driven by a hatred for the undead. Indeed, this footage shows the Railsplitter earning his name as he wields an axe with supernatural strength, plowing through vampires and trees alike with the common tool. Check out the footage below. Read More »
Two of Tim Burton‘s projects for 2012, Dark Shadows (which he directed) and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (which he produced, with Timur Bekmambetov directing) have yet to show any footage to the public. But both are slowly rolling out new images.
We’ve got four new pics today of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which is a June 22 release that stars Benjamin Walker, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Alan Tudyk, Anthony Mackie and Dominic Cooper, with Rufus Sewell and Erin Wasson. Check out the images below. Read More »
What we’ve seen so far of the film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith‘s novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has been limited to scant images and a couple posters. Now there is a new poster — and it is pretty bad, leading to some suspicion that it is not official — but also a behind the scenes video that shows Benjamin Walker in action as the 16th President and vampire killer.

We obviously all love moving images. If we didn’t, we wouldn’t be reading (or writing for) a movie website. However, if you’re like me and are extremely excited for the plethora of potentially awesome movies opening in 2012, right about now you are going to love the still image. USA Today has posted their 2012 movie preview and it includes brand new photos from several of the years biggest films.
The only one that’s a true first look is The Bourne Legacy (you can look at that here) but, after the jump, check out new images from Prometheus, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Avengers, Brave, Men In Black 3, Snow White and the Huntsman and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Read More »
