The undead-slaying presidential tale based on the New York Times Best Selling novel by Seth Grahame-Smith gets elected to both formats this October!
In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox is preparing 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' Blu-ray/DVD combo pack and 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter - 3D' Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD combo pack for October 23.
A citizen by day and a hunter by night, this action-packed film with cutting-edge visual effects shows the Lincoln you know – with one additional quality of which you were unaware….until now.
'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' explores the secret life of Abraham Lincoln before he became President, and the untold story that shaped our nation. Visionary filmmakers Tim Burton ('Dark Shadows') and Timur Bekmambetov ('Wanted') bring a fresh and visceral voice to the bloodthirsty lore of the vampire, imagining Lincoln as history's greatest hunter of the undead.
The releases will feature 1080p video, DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 soundtracks, and supplements will include: The Great Calamity Graphic Novel; Audio Commentary with Writer Seth Grahame-Smith; The Making of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter; A Visual Feast: Timur Bekmambetov’s Visual Style; and “Powerless” Music Video by Linkin Park.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is set at $39.99 and the Blu-ray 3D is $49.99.
