*UPDATE*

I have updated my review and giveaway policies page (now just titled Policies above). If you are entering a giveaway, please read and abide by the applicable policy.

I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.

Anyone looking for a new feed reader? My recommendation is Bloglovin'. I made the switch and love the layout, plus there is now an app for my phone. If you use Bloglovin' or have made the switch to another feed reader, please make sure you are following me on it so you miss none of the content here!

Preview of Upcoming Movie–Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

I wanted to share a preview of an upcoming movie with you all.  I first saw this preview while waiting for The Hunger Games to begin.  The theatre cracked up laughing when they saw the title – however, I’m sure they are not familiar with the trend of late to merge classic stories or historical events/characters with a supernatural element.

Seth Grahame-Smith is the writer of Pride & Prejudice & Zombies as well as Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter – the later of which is coming out in theatres in June 2012 and the former is currently in production stages.

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter is based on the premise that Lincoln had a secret mission to rid the US of vampires – and all of this is outlined in his secret diaries.  I have not read the book, although it is on my TBR pile, however my boyfriend has and enjoyed it.  Here is his review, at Lions and Men, if you would like to get a feel for the book.  

Anyway – as laughable as the premise may be, what you see on the screen looks quite stunning – and we will likely be going to see it. 

After watching the preview, what do you think?

    1. I think if it was just me, I would probably wait for the DVD, however because my boyfriend read it and wants to see it we will splurge for the theatre.

  4. I will definitely be seeing it. I have the book and plan to read it before seeing the movie. It does look most excellent.

    How did you like The Hunger Games?

    1. I hope you enjoy it. I LOVED the Hunger Games - the book more than the movie, but it was, in my opinion, one of the best book to movie adaptations in awhile.
