Giveaway Time! Win The Book 'Director's Cut : The Art Of Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter'!

Photobucket

Any day where you get an e-mail from a major company asking if you want to host a giveaway pertaining to a big time upcoming theatrical release is a pretty damn good day, if you're asking me.  Today, is one of those days!

Abraham Lincoln : Vampire Hunter hits theaters this Friday from 20th Century Fox, and will be followed on July 10th by a 128 page book called Director's Cut : The Art Of Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, which from what I gather is a storyboard and production art filled diary of the conceptualization and making of the film.  Why is it being touted as a 'Director's Cut'?  Because the book contains exclusive looks at the film director Timur Bekmambetov originally had in mind, which didn't entirely make its way onto the screen.  So this is essentially his cut of the film, in picture filled book form.  Cool?  Yea, I'd say so!

If you want to enter to win a copy of the book, all you've gotta do is leave me a comment below with your e-mail address and a little sentence or two about why you are excited to see Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, if you are indeed excited to see it.  If you're not, well, then you probably shouldn't be entering this giveaway anyway.  So be honest like Abe, and don't just enter so you can win a free book and then sell it as soon as you get it!

The entry period runs through next Monday, June 25th, and is open to all residents of the US & Canada, 18 and over.  Good luck!

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter hits theaters this Friday, June 22nd, and you can learn more about the film over on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.  You can also download a little free video game over in the iTunes App Store, which should tide you over until the theatrical release!

First off, Bekmambetov is an interesting director with a great visual style. Second, the idea of combining actual history with horror just seems like a lot of fun. This is definitely one I am looking forward too.

I'm excited to see it because after reading the book, I'd always wondered what a movie based off the book would be like. After seeing the trailer, I think It'll be good. I've had high hopes for this film forever now!

I'm interested in seeing what they do with the movie and my daughter's BF has the biggest crush on Honest Abe. The Original one! LOL So, I'll be taking the girls to see this and I'm excited to see her BF go crazy over Ol'Abe!

The idea intrigued me and the trailer absolutely sold me. Yeah, Johnny Cash had something to do with it, but I think the look of the movie kicks ass and can't wait to see it.

I am hartwell602@gmail.com and am excited about this movie because of the original storyline of how vampires used slave laws to keep in blood. I've been to the theatre of Lincolns assassination and love early American history, so I respect writers that do likewise. (I've heard he did a lot of prep)

From what I can tell, the movie us going to be WAY more badass than the book. And I like badass. Simple enough. :)

Crazy Ivan said...

I want to see this movie and I want to see it be a success and I want to see it realized as the work of genius that the book was, not just for my own benefit, but to show mister too-good-for-literary-mash-ups Steve Niles that he ought not judge someone else's work hardhly without even seeing it first (especially when he and Seth share a mot of the same fan base).

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Asylum's ABRAHAM LINCOLN VS. ZOMBIES. With the Asylum mockbuster being as good as it was, my expectations are set even higher for Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.

If you're only going to see 3 movies with historic US presidents vs supernatural forces... Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter should be one of them. ['FDR: American Badass!' being the third.]

Oddly enough, all 3 of these movies have more historical basis then the programming on the history channel... so damn it... this isn't just entertaining... it's educational.

I'm excited to see this film for a few reasons - I've been a fan of Bekmambetov since I saw Night Watch back in 2005. I also had the chance to see Ben Walker in Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson on Broadway, and a good friend of mine worked closely with him on that production as a dresser. We're all looking to see him do well as his career progresses.

As a History teacher and lover of everything horror, this project is a dream come true for me. This one stands out to me over the other "Classics of fiction mixed with contemporary elements" that we have seen hit the bookshelves because it involves a REAL LIFE NATIONAL HERO, one that I teach my students about almost every year in school. That alone has me pumped for it... plus the involvement of Timur Bekmambetov seals the deal for me because I absolutely loved Nightwatch & Daywatch. I would love to learn more about his input into bringing the original Grahame-Smith book to the big screen.

I read the book, which was a unique take on the Lincoln mythos, and can't wait to see it translated to the big screen. And my girlfriend, who hates the movies that I like, is excited for it too. So if she is excited for this, it must be good.

Andrew Beck said...

I am interested in seeing the film because it stars Benjamin Walker who I saw in "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson" and I would like to see how he tackles the role of Lincoln. I also think the whole idea of Lincoln being a vampire hunter is hilarious and wonderful, so I'm quite taken and amused by the concept. abeck01@snet.net

I want to see Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter because, well, it's called Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. The fact that movie with that title exists pleases me greatly, plus it's a major theatrical release. Who would have though that would even happen?
