PRESS RELEASE: New Trailer For ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER

20th Century Fox have released the new trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter to celebrate Memorial Day Weekend. They have also announced that they will be screening the movie for crew of the Navy aircraft carrier, USS Abraham Lincoln..







Abraham Lincoln, in the guise of actor Benjamin Walker, who portrays the 16th president in the summer movie thriller ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER, and the film's cast and crew, will visit the sailors serving aboard the Navy aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln in June.

As history's most beloved U.S. president and, according to the movie, its greatest hunter of the undead, Walker will be joined aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln by co-stars Anthony Mackie and Erin Wasson, as well as by the film's director Timur Bekmambetov, screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith and producer Jim Lemley. Walker will introduce a special screening of ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER for the thousands of sailors serving on the carrier, and the cast and filmmakers will distribute Lincolnesque top hats, as well as fangs - tools that will help the sailors decide, in the words of one of the film's promotional taglines, if they're patriots or vampires.

In addition, the sailors will receive movie tie-in edition books, provided by Grand Central Publishing, and special graphic novels conceived by Bekmambetov.

The cast and filmmakers will screen the film at two additional bases at undisclosed locations.

"We're very excited that 20th Century Fox and Navy Entertainment wanted to provide ABE's crew the opportunity to preview the new ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER movie while we're out here on deployment," said Capt. John D. Alexander, Commanding Officer of USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72). "We're extremely fortunate that the studio wants to give us an early showing. It's something that we've never experienced before on this ship, and we're extremely grateful for their willingness to share this with our sailors."

“This is really exciting for me to meet the ABE’s crew and screen for them our film ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER,” said Benjamin Walker. “I hope it brings them excitement, goodwill and a taste of home.”

Added the film’s producer Jim Lemley: "We are pleased and proud to have this opportunity to visit with the men and women serving on the USS Abraham Lincoln. We hope they enjoy our film and know how much everyone in the United States appreciates their service.”

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER puts down stakes in theaters everywhere June 22, 2012. The film explores the secret life of our greatest president, and the untold story that shaped our nation. Visionary filmmakers Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov (director of Wanted) bring a fresh and visceral voice to the bloody lore of the vampire, imagining Lincoln as history's greatest hunter of the undead.

Navy Entertainment, a division of Commander, Navy Installations Command, which operates the Navy's Morale, Welfare and Recreation program, brings celebrity shows to sailors deployed around the world for a taste of home.
