The hunt for flesh blood is over

To celebrate the release of ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER on the 20th June, Twentieth Century Fox went on the hunt for ‘fresh blood’ in the art community.

The online Art Competition ‘Fresh Blood Hunt’ was an opportunity for budding creative talent to design an art piece inspired by the film for the chance to win a 17” Mac Book Pro and have their design painted by visionary street artist, Jim Rockwell (Endoftheline), as a mural on Great Eastern Street, East London.

The competition began on Friday 18th May and budding artists had until the 30th May to enter. After the competition closed, people had from 1st – 9th June to visit the site and vote for their favourite piece of art from 12 shortlisted entries.

The winning artwork was created by seventeen year old Emily Jane Neal from North Devon.

Emily said, “My inspiration for my piece was mainly about how Abraham Lincoln was the President of the USA. That is why I included the American flag and a well-known picture of him with his iconic hat on - so that anyone who saw my design would know that the film is about him.

Visionary filmmakers Tim Burton (producer) and Timur Bekmambetov (director) present an original take on the United States’ 16th president and bring a fresh voice to the bloodthirsty lore of the vampire.

When Abraham Lincoln's mother is killed by a supernatural creature, it fuels his passion to avenge her death. Statesmen by day, hunter by night, President Lincoln sets out to crush vampires and their slave-owning helpers.

Based on the book by Seth Grahame-Smith, the film stars Benjamin Walker as Lincoln and co-stars Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Rufus Sewell.
Ripping into cinemas across the UK and Ireland on Wednesday June 20, 2012.
