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?
