Arriving in theaters today, the highly anticipated ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER is based on the popular novel by best-selling author SETH GRAHAME-SMITH and tells the tale of the revenge a pre-presidential LINCOLN seeks after the death of his mother at the hands of the undead. The highly anticipated big-screen adaptation is produced by TIM BURTON, directed by TIMUR BEKMAMBETOV and stars BENJAMIN WALKER, RUFUS SEWELL, MARY ELIZABETH WINSTEAD, ALAN TUDYK, DOMINIC COOPER, ANTHONY MACKIE and JIMMI SIMPSON.
Thought by many to be a one-note gimmick when it was first announced, readers quickly changed their tune and made it a cult hit after reading. At the press conference to promote the film, GRAHAME-SMITH admitted the premise seemed absurd but promised to make it as believable as possible. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
