Watch New "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" Official Trailer! 


I can't wait for this movie! I enjoyed reading the book by Seth Grahame-Smith, and I enjoyed "Wanted" by Timur Bekmambetov who is also directing "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter."

And just watching the trailer brings back memories of the book, so that's a really good sign! For me at least! Produced by Tim Burton, "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" tells the tale of our beloved President, and how his problems with the Civil War mirror the drama surrounding the increasing number of dangerous vampires!

Benjamin Walker plays Lincoln, Dominic Cooper is Henry Sturgess, Mary Elizabeth Winstead is Mary Todd Lincoln, Rufus Sewell is Adam, and Anthony Mackie is William Johnson. The script is co-written by Grahame-Smith (another good sign) and Simon Kinberg (2009's "Sherlock Holmes" and the upcoming "This Means War").

Twentieth Century Fox is releasing "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" in 3D on June 22nd. I can't wait but I can skip the 3D part!

American Society of Cinematographers Hail "The Tree of Life!" 


The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) chose Emmanuel Lubezki's work on Terrence Malick's "The Tree of Life" as the best of 2011 and won the ASC Awards! This was the second time Lubezki won the award with 2006's "Children of Men" as his first. BUT, the cinematographer has not won an Oscar yet despite 5 nominations! But there may be hope. Wally Pfister won the ASC award last year for Christopher Nolan's "Inception" and took home the Oscar as well!

Here's the complete list of the winners of the American Society of Cinematographers Awards (for a complete list of winners/nominees of other award-giving bodies, visit our Awards Avenue coverage right here)

Feature Film: Emmanuel Lubezki, The Tree of Life
