watch it: “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”

As related to today’s QOTD:

This is a “trailer” for the new book Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith [Amazon U.S.] [Amazon Canada] [Amazon U.K.], which will be released soon. That’s interesting enough — trailers for books? neat — but it’s extra interesting because the Guardian is reporting that a movie is already in the works, with Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov producing (but likely neither of them will direct).

I don’t hold out much hope that the book will be worth a read, because Grahame-Smith also wrote Pride and Prejudice and Zombies [Amazon U.S.] [Amazon Canada] [Amazon U.K.], which is a fantastic concept that quickly runs out of steam in prose. I found the book so tedious that I couldn’t even finish it. I do expect that as movies (Zombies is also in preproduction) these ideas have the potential to be a lot more engaging.
