Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter to Revolutionize Film?

Anthony Mackie, one of the stars of the upcoming horror history mash-up Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, has some really high praise and strong words for his upcoming feature. Read on for all the details.

In a recent interview with Screen Rant, Mackie dropped the following on fans...

Having already seen a cut of the film, Mackie says the flick's action sequences are "unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. He [director Timur Bekmambetov] realized that this fabricated story is so far out there that he had to go all the way out to make it work. So, he just went as far as he could with the CGI and that trademark Timur cranking of shots and the storytelling. Abraham Lincoln is like The Matrix of the next generation. It’s going to do to film what The Matrix did to film."

Big words, but you know what? We have more than enough faith in Bekmambetov's direction to live up to those words. The guy's a genius behind the camera. I guess we'll see in about six months.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, directed by Timur Bekmambetov, stars Benjamin Walker, Anthony Mackie, Rufus Sewell, Dominic Cooper, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jimmi Simpson, Alan Tudyk and Robin McLeavy.

Fox is aiming at a June 22nd, 2012, release for the Tim Burton-produced horror adventure.

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.
