Talk about your straightforward titles.

Sure enough, in this new teaser trailer for the upcoming movie Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, we get a glimpse of our 16th president on a mission to track down a bunch of bloodsuckers, namely those who killed his mom.

You know, when he's not busy running the country and dealing with things like the Civil War, of course.

Based on the 2010 mash-up novel of the same name by Seth Grahame-Smith, the movie stars Benjamin Walker in the lead role.

And from what we see here, the guy definitely has an ax to grind. Literally.

While we won't know for sure until the film hits theaters on June 22 if director Timur Bekmambetov can actually pull off this unique mixing of genres (hi, Cowboys & Aliens!), the clip has certainly piqued our interest.

Maybe not as much as those other movies featuring a certain sparkly vampire, but piqued nonetheless.

But what say you? Could this flick benefit from a little R.Pattz?
