These new clips look great. Nothing we weren’t expecting to see, perhaps, but great nonetheless. They boast a certain degree of tongue-in-cheek humor and over-the-top time-warping action scenes which fans of vintage action-fantasy-horror should definitely appreciate. I was skeptical about this Tim Burton collaboration from the start, but every piece of promotional material I’ve studied makes me think its less tasteless and more legendary than I ever anticipated a movie with this ridiculous premise could be.
The clips from the forthcoming movie appear to focus on Lincoln (Benjamin Walker) in hard-man fighting mode, kicking the ass of vampires Anthony Mackie and Rufus Sewell. The last clip sees Dominic Cooper in with a quiff and sunglasses, exposing Lincoln’s weaknesses and strengths. Inspiring stuff of cheesy guff? If you really enjoyed these clips, you might not want to go further and watch this pretty horrific Linkin Park scored music trailer:
What do you think of the new clips and music trailer? The clips roused my vintage vampire-slashing interest, but I found the music score a little distasteful, frankly. It just pushed the movie so far beyond artistically accomplished flippant finesse and too far into trashy for me. Thoughts?
