Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012)
 
Yes, its stupid... but I'm thinking a really fun bit of stupid in an alternate history sense where vampires exist :)

This is the point where I can only assume that people have really run out of new concepts...what's next, Joker Nixon?

What's next is the adaptation of Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, I think.

The book was released before this Lincoln thingie, but the movie won't come out until next year at the earliest.

It's clever, because he was a vampire himself.

It will be a psychological drama, focusing on his troubled mind and his ultimate decision on which side he belongs.
Get ready for 120 minutes of intense self reflection and inner monologue.

And sideburns, don't forget the sideburns... :heh:

It's going to be bad. Anything that goes ridiculously over-the-top for the sake of being "cool" never turns out well (see: Sucker Punch).

Uhm, that's off base.

Yes, but Sucker Punch is good so... hey it might still have a chance!
Oh, you just dissed Sucker Punch casually and thought no one would notice. :frustrated: :D

No, I had hoped they would notice because it proves my point quite well. I can't help that you disagree, though.

Heh, Sucker Punch *was* a sucker punch, as much for the audience as the protagonist, a high budget riff of a short film from 1962 called "An Occurence at Owl Creek Bridge" that I saw in high school literature class in the early 70s.

But that's off-topic.... I don't expect this to be *good* but I suspect it might become a cult favorite like Bubba-hotep or some such.

1st Trailer is out.

Those were some quality axes they produced back then.
Nothing like the cheap ones you get from hardware stores nowadays, that break every time you try to chop off a tree with one hit.

what is next...Tolstoy, Dancing with Werewolves?

Ithekro 2012-02-13 15:25

Wagner and the Space Pirates.

Tolkien and the Ring of Death. He found a cursed book that captures human souls to bring zombiefied medieval warriors into the world, got sucked into the book and had to find a way to get out, and to prevent more people from being sucked into the book as it is passed around. If the person does not get out within a week, he is trapped in the medieval world forever.
