Check out this great new interview Mary did with the site HeyUGuys during this past weekend’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter press junket where she talked about what drew her to the film, why she loved playing Mary Todd Lincoln and more.
Edit– Caps are now available in the gallery.
The site also published their first review. Here’s the short version of it.
But the film’s title tells the whole story and sets the stage for its over the top action and freight train like pace. It’s called Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter…Let’s have some damn fun. There are a lot of amusing nods to historical events and characters that anyone with a high school diploma will find entertaining. But it’s the overall feel of the film that I loved most. Beside’s Walkers spot on Abe, it’s a very dark and violent film. Initially I was sure the studio would want to sell as many tickets as possible to a film that had vampire in the title and slap a PG-13 rating on it. However, Fox, trusting a successful R-rated director in Timur, held nothing back and the film is better for it. It’s incredibly violent and features vampires in the correct and demonic light with which they should be seen. It’s not overly campy but it’s just enough to smirk at and you’ll find yourself saying “Really?” only a few times. The action is far too much fun and grabs you from the first axe swing till the last twirl. Abe’s axe is the new bending bullet.
There is another Abe Lincoln movie out later this year but I challenge it to be as exciting as this.
