About Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Probably the pinnacle of high-concept movie-making, this mixes the story of America's favourite president with everybody's favourite creatures of the night: vampires. Abe (Benjamin Walker) witnessed his mother being killed by a vampire when he was a child, and develops a passion for fighting and killing the bloodsuckers. His mentor Henry Sturgess (Dominic Cooper) provides the names, and Abe and his axe do the rest. However, he also has to govern America and deal with Adam (Rufus Sewell), a vampire who wants to wage war on humanity. Helping Abe fight his corner are his wife (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and valet (Anthony Mackie). Expect lots of slow-motion bullet-time and smashing of things from the director of Wanted.
