Official trailer released for New Orleans’ filmed ‘Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter’
NEW ORLEANS, LA (NBC33) — The official trailer for Tim Burton’s “Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter” is online and ready for viewing.
Much of the $70-million project was filmed in New Orleans back in the fall of 2011. The project is the film adaptation of the book of the same name by Seth Grahame-Smith. It’s a fictional biography that is assumed to recount from the secret diaries kept by the 16th President.
Sources tell NBC33 News that Baton Rouge was originally scouted for the project. However, New Orleans won the final bid.
Based on the trailer, the film has classic signatures from director Tim Burton. The dark, yet explosive scenes will surely keep us all on our toes when the film is released in theatres on June 22, 2012.
