Four Score and Seven Vampire Ass-Kickings Ago

The first trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter? Why, don’t mind if I do.

I’m not the biggest fan of Timur Bemabetaphakonkox — he’s stylish, but I felt both Night Watch and Wanted lacked something — and I understand FilmDrunk’s consternation at the film’s apparent lack of humor, but I’m digging this. I like that they’re playing it 100% straight, at least for this trailer. Maybe it’ll be tiresome during the movie proper, but right now watching a grim-faced Lincoln flinging his ax around like a kung fu master is awesome to me. Look, any action scene featuring someone wearing Lincoln’s top hat equals pure entertainment as far as I’m concerned.
