Tim Burton Gets in the Spirit

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter won’t hit screens until June 22nd, but the President’s 203rd birthday was just too good an opportunity to promote the film about this little-known aspect of his past. On Friday, Fox held an event at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, IL. On hand were the book’s author, Seth Grahame-Smith, the movie’s star, Benjamin Walker, and director, Timur Bekmambetov.

Producer Tim Burton was busy with other things, but sent the following video.

As a result of the publicity, the book is again in the top 100 on Amazon’s sales rankings (it’s currently at #79). Tie-ins will be released in April.
