The first photo from the set of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
has been released, and what it lacks in action, it more than makes up for in rich character development. Also, I’m beginning to question the production values of this project, as the U.S. flags featured so prominently don’t even have the requisite 50 stars. Sure, it’s a small oversight, but the little things add up. I hope it was an oversight, and the producers weren’t omitting stars to save money, because that would be VERY unpatriotic.
When he’s not busy commanding the Union Army, freeing slaves, or slaying the undead
, Abraham Lincoln
(played by Benjamin Walker
) enjoys getting on a nice wooden stage so that stately white men may stare at the back of his head for time indeterminate. Don’t believe me? Believe this:
Beyond that, there isn’t much to distinguish this set pic from a photograph of a gathering of Civil War re-creationists. They could have given us a Mary Todd upskirt shot.
