First-Look Footage At Anthony Mackie In “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”

First-Look Footage At Anthony Mackie In "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter"

We’ve seen the first official poster for the film, as well as at least one still photo of the title character (played by Benjamin Walker) in action; but we really haven’t seen anything of Anthony Mackie who assumes BBF duties (or as he jokingly makes comparisons in the below video… it’s like 48 Hours; he’s the Eddie Murphy character) in the upcoming revisionist actioner Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

Today, we finally get our first real look of Mackie as Lincoln’s best friend, William Johnson, who assists Abe in taking axe to vampire skull in the movie directed by Timur Bekmambetov, scheduled to be released in theaters on June 22nd.

I’m sure a trailer is imminent; in the meantime, check out MTV’s behind-the-scenes footage of the film below:
