'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' Is 'Mind-Blowing,' Says Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Recommended Posts

In MTV News' [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2012/01/17/abraham-lincoln-vampire-hunter-set-visit/"]recent visit to the set[/url] of "[url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/465067/moviemain.jhtml"]Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter[/url]," we learned that the movie will be anything but a traditional look back at the life of our 16th president. Most biopics about Lincoln don't involve Honest Abe utilizing his own [url="http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1677290/benjamin-walker-abraham-lincoln-vampire-hunter.jhtml"]custom form of axe-centered martial arts[/url].

"It's a very unique take," [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/261725/personmain.jhtml"]Mary Elizabeth Winstead[/url] told MTV News at the [url="http://sundance.mtv.com/"]Sundance Film Festival[/url], in what may be the biggest understatement in movies this year.


We caught up with Winstead, who was in Park City for her new movie "Smashed," to talk about playing the woman behind the presidential undead killer, Mary Todd Lincoln. Unfortunately for the actress, her role as Mary Todd doesn't involve much axe-throwing.

"I'm kind of on the sidelines, but I'm very suspicious of my husband's [actions] and what's going on in his life," she said. "I know that he's hiding something from me. You sort of see me piecing things together."

"Vampire Hunter" comes out of the twisted minds of author Seth Grahame-Smith and the film's director Timur Bekmabetov. Having not seen the finished product yet, Winstead couldn't even begin to explain what we'll all see when the movie opens in June.

"I honestly have no idea what to expect, even though I'm in the movie," she said. "It's really hard to promote in a way because I haven't seen it, but I know it's going to be just mind-blowing. It's not something I can really visualize myself, because it's so unique to him visually."

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
