New Poster for Film Adaptation of Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith

A new poster for the film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's 2009 alternate history thriller Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has been released. It is shown below (right, click for larger version) together with an earlier poster (left, click for larger version), which we realized we hadn't yet posted. (We think the first one is quite dramatic; less sure about the most recent one.)

The author uses a recently discovered document titled The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, given to him by a vampire named Henry Sturges, to write this updated biography of our 16th President. "[H]enceforth my life shall be one of rigorous study and devotion," Lincoln writes. "I shall become a master of mind and body. And this mastery shall have but one purpose …"

Grahame-Smith adapted his book for the film, which is directed by Timur Bekmambetov. Benjamin Walker stars as Lincoln with Mary Elizabeth Winstead as his wife Mary. The film also features Dominic Cooper as Henry Sturges and Rufus Sewell as Adam, Lincoln's vampire nemesis. It opens in theaters June 22nd, 2012.
