Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter Movie's Visual Effects

Director Timur Bekmambetov's imaginative and original visual world in Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter was created by a troupe of graphic artists who allowed actors Benjamin Walker and Anthony Mackie to perform a fight sequence on top of a speeding train which is on top of a burning bridge.

How did that work?

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter is the 20th Century Fox reimaging of the biography of the 16th U.S. President in a fictive world where his mother was killed by a vampire.  Played by the rising star Benjamin Walker, the President vows to rid America of vampires.  The film is produced by Tim Burton and Jim Lemley.

Rufus Sewell plays the Lord of the Vampires, Lincoln's great antagonist in the film.

The hallmark of Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter is the great use of fantastic action sequences.
