We like history. We certainly like Dominic Cooper, Benjamin Walker, and Anthony Mackie. But will we like the Tim Burton-produced Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, out in June? Check out the trailer and our thoughts, below.
Jerry Portwood: Wow. I know this is the Year of Abe, but this is WAY more serious than I expected. I guess I should expect that from Bekmambetov, but I wonder what it would have been like with more camp and less agro tree chopping. And no shirtless Benjamin Walker moments? Sad.
Alex Taylor Williams: Tim Burton is running out of ideas. I'd rather another Van Helsing spin off.
Adam Rathe: If anyone can pull together a far-fetched idea about some sort of bad-ass ancient president, it's probably Ben Walker. And while the trailer doesn't leave me with the best idea of what I'll be sinking an afternoon and a few "but I saw some other weird movie with you, so you have to come with me" favors into, I'm still planning on seeing it--after all, how much worse could things get for Lincoln in a theater?
Mike Berlin: The vampire trend is officially over.
Max Berlinger: Hold on, this is actually about Abraham Lincoln and vampires? That isn't some analogy?
