Here is what happens when you mix an Hong Kong action movie with the effects made famous by The Matrix and roll the date back to the early 1850s: you get Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. The movie, by Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov (director of Wanted), explores the secret life of one of America's presidents as one of history's greatest hunter of the undead.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is a 2012 American 3D supernatural horror film based on the 2010 mashup novel Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter. The film is directed by Timur Bekmambetov and is produced by Bekmambetov and Tim Burton. The novel's author, Seth Grahame-Smith, wrote the adapted screenplay. The real-life figure Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States (1861--1865), is fictionally portrayed in the novel and the film as having a secret identity as a vampire hunter. Benjamin Walker stars as Lincoln. Filming began in Louisiana in March 2011, and the film is being produced in 3D. It is scheduled to be released on June 22, 2012.
