This looks more silly than anything else. I might buy Abraham Lincoln as a vampire hunter, but running up walls? I didn’t know that parkour was a thing in the 19th century. What I get from this trailer is that this isn’t the period piece it should be but a modern action movie in period drag. It could be a lot more interesting than that.
And what’s this?
Are you a patriot or a vampire? That is simply slanderous, suggesting that a vampire could not also be a patriot.
The international trailer, perhaps not unexpectedly, omits the patriot question:
And it adds a voiceover by Dominic Cooper that makes the film a lot more appealing to me. It tells me that perhaps Lincoln will be an actual human character, not a videogame avatar, and that there maybe something like a story here.
Or maybe that’s just wishful thinking.
Which trailer do you like better?
