That’s right, it’s time for an all-new episode of The Flickcast! Finally, right? We had some issues last week but we think we’ve got ’em sorted out now. Well, at least the ones having to do with the podcast anyway. What are you gonna do, right?
On this week’s episode Chris and Joe jump into the new Fall TV season and discuss some of the shows they’re looking forward to seeing (and some they’re not). The shows you should probably check out include Blindspot, Minority Report, Supergirl, Ash vs. Evil Dead, Con Man, The Man In The High Castle and The Muppets. Shows you should probably avoid include Quantico, Life In Pieces, Heroes Reborn and The Bastard Executioner. There’s also quite a bit of talk about how great the show Longmire is. In fact …
Picks this week are unanimous in that both Chris and Joe pick the 4th season of Longmire, which recently arrived on Netflix. How’s that for consensus?

I don’t think anyone expects Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter to be good. Or decent. Or anything more than this summer’s Snakes on a Plane. Which, to some degree, it is. I liked Snakes on a Plane because it delivered precisely what the title promised.
The movie opens with the young Lincoln defending a freed slave from being taken back to the South and otherwise cruel treatment at the hand of vicious Jack Barts (Marton Csokas). That night, Barts sneaks into the Lincoln household and promptly kills his mother.

After a heavy night at the bar, Lincoln makes his move, shooting Barts in the eye and getting quite the surprise when he discovers that Barts is a vampire.

This may come as news to some of you. In addition to being President during one of the most tumultuous times in US history, Abraham Lincoln was secretly also a vampire hunter.
Well, at least that’s how history goes in the upcoming film Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Produced by Tim Burton and directed by Timur Bekmambetov, the film is an adaptation of the Seth Grahame-Smith book about Lincoln and his quest to destroy the undead after his mother is killed by bloodsucking vampires.
We’ve got the first trailer for the film to share with you today. To be honest, we weren’t expecting much from this but it’s nice to be pleasantly surprised once in awhile. The pic, at least from this trailer, actually looks pretty good. You will, of course, have to judge for yourselves.
Check out the trailer after the break. Look for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which stars Benjamin Walker, Rufus Sewell, and Dominic Cooper to hit theaters on June 22.
