    Well, the book wasn't all that great in the first place.

    Yeah, I read about 50 pages and gave up.
    Trailer does look a bit on the shitty side

    I don't know what you guys are talking about. It's called Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. If you're expecting something other than complete schlock, you're at the wrong movie anyway. I think this looks like an epic amount of fun, so long as they don't take themselves too seriously. Like that Timur Bekmambetov is directing it. I enjoy his visual style.

    I truly hope this is a massively fun over the top bad movie.

    Hopefully it's atleast as good as Bubba Ho Tep.

    The problem is that by the looks of this trailer, that's exactly what they're doing. Might as well call it Underworld: Abe Lincoln.

    This still sounds like a premise that a ten year old came up with.

    I really enjoyed the book. They did a good job of keeping it cheesy while still incorporating a somewhat legit sounding alternate history.

    Sadly, the movie looks like it's taking itself seriously. I dunno. I'll wait for more footage, but I was all in on this after reading the book, but now I'm thinking Netflix.

    I'm just happy its a Tim Burton joint with out Johnny Depp. Maybe it will be "Batman" good.

    Exactly. I was hoping for something with a much more campy feel. I was expecting it to be fun and light, not serious and dark.

    Based on the random shot of modern day DC I'm guessing they're still going keep the flash backish style of the book.

    That is probably my favorite B movie.

    Saw it last night, what Neon Taster said months ago was pretty spot on. It's a fun shitty movie. The 3D was actually well done and despite having a lot of dark scenes it was still watchable unlike some other 3d movies where it looked too dark. The action scenes are pretty ridiculous, in a good way.

    A matinee is worth it, a night time showing, that's debatable.

    Yay Neon Taster! :)

    Sounds about right, though. I might catch a matinee of this just for the shlocky fun.
