OK, I just found the trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and. I. AM. SO. EXCITED.
I haven't read the book yet, but I think the concept is so brilliant and creative. I respect the fact that they're just doing whatever the hell they want with it, without regard for logic or historical accuracy. So many sci-fi or horror films (or whatever this would be considered) try to ground themselves in some sort of reality, and fail miserably. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter seems to just say...bullocks to that! I want Honest Abe fighting vampires and jumping off exploding locomotives and obliterating trees with a single swing.
And that's what we get. Pure, unadulterated history!crack. I love it.
Daniel Day-Lewis version of Abraham Lincoln: your move.
See the trailer here!
