Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Taking itself lightly enough to be gleefully ludicrous, but also taking itself seriously enough to be thrillingly elaborate. Tim Burton produces, Nightwatch / Wanted's Timur Bekmambetov directs, Benjamin Walker (aka Meryl Streep's son-in-law) stars as Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Just for fun, Benjamin Walker screen debuted in Bill Condon's Kinsey, playing the 19-year-old version of the titular character who grows up to be the sex researcher played by Liam Neeson. True story.
