So is this the summer's nuts 'n gum, "Jonah Hex"-style mess or a stylish take on the vampire genre? Or both? Frankly, it looks like it's a bit of everything in the red band trailer for "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," a movie that we keep forgetting is coming out next month just a couple of weeks after "Prometheus." And it seems 20th Century Fox has had their attention mostly on Ridley Scott's baby as well, but with that film screening for press next week before it opens internationally, it looks like they can now put their attention on the Timur Bekmambetov-directed, Tim Burton-produced movie.

With summer nearly upon us, studios are heavily pushing their upcoming genre fare with gaudy orange/blue-gradient posters, but among the slew of studio material trying their hardest to stand out, the names Kilmer and Korine together seem the most exciting.

The summer movie season is only a few weeks away. Indeed, in some parts of the world, it's already underway. Due to the Euro 2012 football tournament, the rest of the world are getting several films, including "The Avengers" and "Prometheus" early, and many territories were unlucky enough to get "Battleship" in their multiplexes last week. But things kick off in the U.S. on May 4th with "The Avengers," with roughly one massive tentpole following every week after that.

This past weekend, two pricey fantasy epics hit movie screens in the form of Warner Bros.' swords-and-sandal sequel "Wrath Of The Titans" and Relativity's comic fairy tale "Mirror Mirror." And while their audiences were, in theory, different (with Tarsem's Snow White picture skewing much younger), neither fared as well as hoped, "Wrath of the Titans" ending up with barely half of the original film's opening weekend, around $35 million, while "Mirror Mirror" failed to clear the $20 million mark, despite the presence of Julia Roberts.

2012 could be best remembered as the year when Hollywood got cold feet and backed away from its newest stars-in-the-making. To wit: While the Internet and the movie-blog industry loves Tom Hardy, the Weinstein Company knows the signal to noise ratio just doesn't match and they bumped "The Wettest County" (a prohibition drama that Hardy stars in) in the release schedule until, after "The Dark Knight Rises" (Hardy is the main villain), hoping the immense popularity of that picture will only help the awareness of the limited release drama centering on three brothers who run an illegal moonshine operation.

We have to admit, on paper, "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" sounds a bit ridiculous as far as historical/genre mashups go. But the film has quietly been building buzz thanks to some edgy stills released over the past few weeks, and production's focus less on big name stars, and more on character actors to bring the story to life. While we'll have to see if Benjamin Walker is a name that will get audiences to buy a ticket this summer, this new trailer debuted at Time may be all they need to fill out multiplex screens.
