After being screened at the USS Abraham Lincoln, "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" held its premiere in New York on Monday night, June 18. Taking place at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square, the special screening event was supported by the film's leading cast members, including Benjamin Walker and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
Walker who plays Abe in the thriller looked sleek in a traditional two-piece black suit, while Winstead opted to go with a classy look. Letting loose her long brown hair, the Mary Todd Lincoln depicter kept it conservative in a long-sleeved golden dress that she paired with nude-colored platform heels.
Other cast members spotted on the red carpet were Anthony Mackie and Rufus Sewell. Mackie stole the attention with his light blue tux that he paired with matching pants and black leather shoes, while Sewell, who donned a black suit, brought along a female companion who donned a white midi dress.
Producer Tim Burton was also seen attending the event. Rocking an all-black ensemble, the "Dark Shadows" helmer arrived solo at the special screening. Erin Wasson, Robin McLeavy, Alex Lombard and rock band Tyler Bryant & the Shakedown were among the celebrity guests during the night.
In "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter", Abe is not only described as an iconic politician, but also as a man who dedicates his life to destroy the vampires with his trusty axe after his mother was killed by those vampires. The fabled figure continues to hunt the immortal beings all the way through his presidency.
Directed by Timur Bekmambetov, the mashup history movie will make its way out onto theaters across the U.S. on June 22.
