New images for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

2012’s most ludicrous-sounding film has released a new batch of images (perhaps to convince people that yes, this film really does exist) featuring the 16th President of the United States tooling up to fight the undead.

The new images show Lincoln (Ben Walker) brandishing his trusty axe, as well as Rufus Sewell and Erin Wasson turning the tables on our stovepipe-wearing hero.

The film rewrites the backstory of one of America’s great leaders to assert that Lincoln’s mother was killed by supernatural beasties. Vowing revenge, the President uses his precious spare time to slay the undead, aided and abetted by his assistant William Johnson (Anthony Mackie).
