Greg Cannom does fx for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

First published in 2010, ready for theatrical release this June

While munching on tasty Valentine’s Day, Lindor chocolate truffles and applying for a few makeup jobs online, I ran across the recently released trailer,  Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012). The movie is based on the popular book of the same name by Seth Grahame-Smith which was first published only 2 years ago.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter was produced by Tim Burton and directed by Timur Bekmambetov  (he directed Wanted, Day Watch and Night Watch, all favs of mine) and staring Benjamin Walker, Rufus Sewell and Dominic Cooper.

But on to the important stuff, like who did the makeup for this film.  Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has a huge makeup department, including the incomparable Greg Cannom.  While I am very interested in seeing the work of this great crew of artist, (whom I have listed below) the trailer isn’t very promising, I actually laughed at the end of it. The featurette is much more interesting than the trailer. I have embedded both below for your viewing pleasure.

Maybe I will try to contact some of the makeup artist to find out what we can expect? Wish me luck!
