Fox recently hosted an event at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum in Springfield, Illinois, in promotion of its upcoming Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and since he was unable to attend, Tim Burton provided a taped greeting to those assembled, which we have right here.
To go along with the greeting, Burton gave the museum and its guests a first look at the summer movie’s trailer, footage, and behind-the-scenes moments before the film opens June 22nd. Actor Benjamin Walker, who portrays the 16th President, director Timur Bekmambetov, co-screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith (author of the novel), and producer Jim Lemley all made a presentation.
The Tim Burton-produced, Timur Bekmambetov-directed horror adventure Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter stars Benjamin Walker, Anthony Mackie, Rufus Sewell, Dominic Cooper, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jimmi Simpson, Alan Tudyk, and Robin McLeavy.
The film explores the secret life of our greatest president, and the untold history that shaped our nation. As a young boy, Abraham Lincoln witnesses the shocking death of his mother, leading him on a path to an ongoing war – and ultimately to the presidency – he chronicles in a hidden diary. The journal reveals the incredible story of a clandestine warrior who never stopped fighting for the country he led and the people he loved.
