I might be rushing things just a little bit because we still have a few weeks left in February, but come to think of it, June is not that far away especially with the rather impressive lineup of movies we have to tide ourselves over until the end of 2012, supposedly the end of the world.
For the record, I doubt that this will be one of those movies that will blow your socks off, but I look forward to it anyway because it looks like it's going to be a lot of fun for two reasons. Firstly there's the obvious; The creative liberties taken with the iconic United States president Abraham Lincoln, whom even in real life had a reputation as a badass. Secondly because I immensely enjoyed the new Sherlock Holmes movies by Guy Ritchie, and the action in Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter looks to be similar.
Well, that's the impression I got from the trailer, anyway. We've all seen Wanted , so it's pretty safe to assume director Timur Bekmambetov knows his stuff.
