Walker, Bekmambetov, Grahame-Smith Talk Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter


Shock Till You Drop recently visited Springfield, Illinois where 20th Century Fox held a special Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter press event.  

Part of our itinerary: A trip to Lincoln’s tomb in the Oak Ridge Cemetery and the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum where we feasted our eyes on one of Lincoln’s original, signature top hats and one of the gloves he wore when he was assassinated.  The trip also called for a preview of the ALVH trailer (debuting today and looks like a hyper-stylized blast) at the museum along with interviews with director Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted), star Benjamin Walker and writer Seth Grahame-Smith, who also penned the novel upon which the film is based.

Inside, you’ll find the first batch of sound bites from the trio as they discuss the June 22nd release also starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Dominic Cooper, Alan Tudyk, Anthony Mackie and Adam Rockoff.
