The first image from Timur Bekmambetov’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has gone online. In case you couldn’t get the plot from the title, the movie is about America’s 16th President secret life as a vampire slayer. Based off the book by Seth Grahame-Smith, the story re-imagines that Lincoln’s mother and grandfather were killed by a vampire and that the president’s resolve to end slavery was due in part to the “fact” that vampires were involved with the slave trade. However, he also learns that there are good vampires and bad vampires and that he can’t simply just kill them all willy-nilly.
Hit the jump for the image and to learn how the production is devoted to historical accuracy in this incredibly silly story. The film stars Benjamin Walker, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Anthony Mackie, Dominic Cooper, Alan Tudyk, Jimmi Simpson, and Refus Sewell. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter opens in 3D on June 22, 2012.
