In anticipation of the upcoming theatrical release of Twentieth Century Fox’s 3D action adventure ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER, director Timur Bekmambetov has created a special music trailer featuring multi-platinum alternative rock band Linkin Park.
Bekmambetov recently filmed the band performing the song “POWERLESS” from their forthcoming album, LIVING THINGS, in Berlin, Germany for this exclusive clip. Linkin Park’s “POWERLESS” is featured in the end credits of ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER.
“Linkin Park are extraordinary musical artists who combine genres to create their own sound. It only seems fitting for us to collaborate with them on this unique film. It was a privilege to work with them on this music trailer,” commented Bekmambetov.
Added Linkin Park’s Joe Hahn, “Timur showed us the film and we loved it and felt we had a song that would be a great fit with his movie. We were delighted that Timur came to Berlin to shoot us performing it so he could mash it up with film footage in a really unique way.”
ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER will release only in cinemas on August 2, 2012. The song “POWERLESS” will close Linkin Park’s upcoming album, LIVING THINGS, which is co-produced by Rick Rubin and Mike Shinoda and will be released on June 22, 2012 on Warner Bros. Records.
