Few people outside of the relatively insular world of New York theater knew Walker's name, which made him pretty much an unknown until Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter opened last weekend. Yes, Walker was once again playing an American President with a twist, this time portraying the Great Emancipator as a man who fought off Confederate vampire hordes

How many box office hits can one studio make? An even better question: how many number one movies in a row can one studio release? This weekend Pixar launched Brave, a movie which has not only shown the studio can quickly and solidly bounce back from a critical flop (last year's disappointing Cars 2) but that it is still going strong with its thriteenth number one box office release in a row.

While director Timur Bekmambetov makes a lot of use of CGI effects, both Mackie and star Benjamin Walker did a ton of their own, extremely physical stunts, which is pretty appropriate for two Juilliard-trained stage veterans who know their way around some stage combat

Despite one glorious moment near the end, Mary Todd stays out of the action throughout most of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter-- and Winstead admits that it was hard hearing about the elaborate action sequences staged by director Timur Bekmambetov, while she'd "just sit back in my hoop skirt."

Plenty Of Killing Going On In New Clip From Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Plenty Of Killing Going On In New Clip From Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
It would seem that everything we thought we knew about Abraham Lincoln is completely false. While we all learned about the historic president in school and how he saved our country during the Civil War, it turns out that one very key detail was kept out of the history books: Lincoln was a vampire hunter. And judging by this new clip from the upcoming film Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter he's pretty damn good at what he does.Ab

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Red-Band Trailer Boasts A Lot Of Gore Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Red-Band Trailer Boasts A Lot Of Gore
Early ads for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter revealed wisps of plot and tons of style, brandishing Timur Bekmambetov's slick action aesthetic like its revenge-seeking hero wields his undead-slaying axe. But amidst the dark and smooth soundtrack, these trailers hid much of the horror movie's gore. Now, Twentieth Century Fox gives into fans' blood lust unleashing a red-band trailer that showcases palpable blows, plenty of gore, and even a little flirtatious lady back.

New Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Trailer Has A Strong Dose Of Johnny Cash New Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Trailer Has A Strong Dose Of Johnny Cash
Again, with Prometheus still fresh in my brain it's hard to be equally dazzled by this, especially with the action and tricky camera shots that seem really reminiscent of director Timur Bekmambetov's previous film, the flashy but forgettable Wanted. The concept is undeniably unique, but Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter still somehow looks really familiar

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter International Trailer Offers More Plot Details Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter International Trailer Offers More Plot Details
While this trailer boasts Bekmambetov's helming of the high-octane action flick Wanted, horror fans know the Kazakhstani director best for his chilling and thrilling, Russian vampire tales Night Watch and Day Watch. From the looks of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter's trailers, these moody movies are the more relevant inspiration as Lincoln seems to share their slick action sensibilities and cool color-scheme punctuated by vibrant and dangerous oranges and reds.

The style of the clip, obviously, mirrors the bending, twisting fight choreography of Bekmambetov’s past films. But I like that Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter seems to be taking a serious tone, because jokey footage might have let the air out of my anticipation bubble. Based on this footage, I’m actually looking forward to seeing the film, more than I was prior to seeing this clip.

Tim Burton Involved In The Beetlejuice Sequel Tim Burton Involved In The Beetlejuice Sequel
Before Tim Burton made Johnny Depp his go-to leading man, his recurring star was '80s everyman Michael Keaton. Together the pair made two darkly fun Batman movies, and the delightfully demented poltergeist comedy Beetlejuice in which Keaton famously played the eponymous "ghost with the most." Keaton's game goofiness and aloof appeal easily made him a fan favorite.

While we have gotten other looks at the film, such as this still which was released just last week, this is actually the best shot we've seen of Benjamin Walker in his full Lincoln makeup. While he's not wearing his classic stove-pipe hat, I'll be damned if this doesn't look exactly like our 16th president.

Rufus Sewell Will Be The Lead Bad Guy In Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Rufus Sewell Will Be The Lead Bad Guy In Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Sewell is British, which already makes him a villain of all things freedom-loving and American (hear that, colonialists?!?!) , but it's unclear if he was cast for his British accent or a face that screams "I am not afraid of you and could easily kill you with my bare hands."

Alan Tudyk Will Play Stephen A. Douglas In Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter Alan Tudyk Will Play Stephen A. Douglas In Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter
In Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter the 16th President will be fighting off a lot of fictional enemies-- namely the vampires, who in Seth Grahame-Smith's book were one of the chief causes behind the Civil War. But now Alan Tudyk has signed on to play one of Lincoln's adversaries who actually existed

Robin McLeavy Will Play Abe's Mom In Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Robin McLeavy Will Play Abe's Mom In Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Back in the early years of the aughts, James Franco was one of the actors that auditioned for the role of Spider-Man in Sam Raimi's first film version of the character. The role, of course, eventually went to Tobey Maguire, but Raimi liked Franco so much that he decided to cast him as Harry Osborne, a vital role in the Spidey universe. It's something that Robin McLeavy can think about while watching Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

Last week a cool little story came online. Just a few days after winning his first Oscar, it was revealed that Nine Inch Nails front-man and Social Network composer Trent Reznor would not only be crafting the music for Timur Bekmambetov's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, but would also have a cameo as the bloodsucker who kills the 16th President's mother.

Jimmi Simpson Added To The Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Cast Jimmi Simpson Added To The Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Cast
Last week Scoot McNairy was made to look like he was becoming one of the busier actors working today. In one fell swoop it he had managed to rope three roles in three major upcoming films including Andrew Dominik's Cogan's Trade; Ridley Scott's Prometheus; and Timur Bekmambetov's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Now it looks like one of those projects slipped through his fingers.

Though the book by Seth Grahame-Smith covered Lincoln's entire presidency, as he devoted his life to killing vampires and preventing the uprising of the Confederate vampires during the Civil War, Winstead and Walker will obviously be playing young versions of Mary Todd and Abraham Lincoln. We've heard previously that Bekmambetov is committed to casting lesser-known actors in the film

First up is the part in Cogan's Trade, which apparently McNairy has already landed.

Latino Review says Bekmambetov is aiming to cast up and comers in the movie, and McLeavy definitely fits that description. No one in the movie is exactly an A-list star-- Walker's most famous for starring in Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson on Broadway, while Cooper and Mackie are recognizable rising stars-- but McLeavy would be by far the least experienced
