We’ve got quite a Lincoln double feature next year. One involves Daniel Day-Lewis likely getting a Best Actor award. The other involves our president hacking and slashing vampires. IGN has the poster debuts for producer Tim Burton and director Timur Bekmambetov‘s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, one for night and the other for day. They feature Benjamin Walker as our figure, with a cast also including Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Alan Tudyk, Anthony Mackie and Dominic Cooper. Based on Seth Grahame-Smith‘s novel the film hits theaters June 22, 2012.
The other big poster debut was for Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games. The studio hid 100 separate pieces of the below poster around the net and had users collect them by searching with the Twitter hashtag #HungerGames100. It looks like user @johnshoward solved it first. Check it out below for the film hitting theaters March 23rd, 2012 and starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and many more.
Below, I’ll just quickly wrap up the other posters since it is far from our first looks at the films. We have a John Carter IMAX poster thanks to Fandango from Andrew Stanton‘s upcoming blockbuster, hitting theaters this March. Following that we have a new poster (via BD) for the excellent-looking animation ParaNorman, from the group behind Coraline. It will arrive in theaters this August.
Then there is a new teaser poster (via CS) for Fox’s low-budget superhero pic Chronicle, which we got a neat tease of a few months ago. Lastly, we have two banners for The Avengers which looks exactly like everything else that has been released. You already know everything there is to know about this movie, so I’ll stop here. See them below via IGN.
