New trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter: watch now

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has released a new trailer in which Benjamin Walker's titular President goes toe-to-toe with Rufus Sewell and his vampire uprising.

The new trailer shows Lincoln writing his journal, in which he makes it perfectly clear where his priorities lie. "Whatever history remembers of me," begins the President, "if it remembers anything at all, it shall only be a fraction of the truth."

"For whatever else I am, a husband, a lawyer, a president… I shall always think of myself first and foremost as a hunter." Woooo! Goosebumps anyone? Yes, us too.

Take a look at the new trailer below…

If nothing else, Walker certainly has the speech-making down pat, with both his journal reading and performance at the Gettysburg Address getting the adrenaline pumping. Throw in some considerable prowess with an axe, and he should make for a scene-stealing president of the first order.

Directed by Timur Bekmambetov, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter opens in the UK on 20 June 2012. If the vampire genre is getting a little old, at least this one can't be accused of sticking to the traditional format…
