    Is that the new movie with Nicolas Cage as a vampire?

    I think that was a hoax claiming that a photograph from Bristol, TN or VA bore a resemblance to Cage, so he must be a vampire.

    Right, but I thought the hoax came about because of the movie.

    Well, since Nicholas Cage doesn't appear in the credits for the film, I'd say that's a highly unlikely explanation for the source of that hoax.

    I didn't see the movie, let alone the credits. That's why I asked the question.

    there's no need to get snippy.

    Of course, now you're going to tell me you didn't intend your post to read that way.

    A quick google search tells me the only vampire movie with Nick Cage was Vampire Kiss back in '88.

    So .., he's just defending his non-undeadness for some other movie ...

    Actually I checked Wikipedia and IMDB.

    I'm sorry if Jenee thought I was being snippy, I was honestly just addressing the topic at hand. :shrug:

    It's based off a book of the same name, which was [-]an attempt to cash in on[/-] inspired by the success of "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies." (Which, BTW, is an improvement over the original because I didn't fall asleep on the first page.)

    The book is actually a fun read.It's not meant to be taken seriously and Rick could stand to pull the stick out.

    Yeah, it was a real photo dated 1870 of a man that looked very like Mr. Cage. Some guy noticed the resemblance and tried to sell it on Ebay for an asking price of ONE MILLEEEEEEENNNN DOLLARS! Ebay told him to cut the shit and took the photo down.

    Had nothing to do with this movie, or evidently any other movie. Cage thought it was funny and talked about it on the talk show circuit - anything to get some buzz. :)

    I'm good friends with Bristol's historian and have worked with him on some historical matters. He's an elderly gentleman who can tell you about just about anything that ever happened there. Knowing him, he could probably ID the man in that photo.

    I dread the day when he passes because a wealth of knowledge will be lost.

    My wife and I went to see "This Means War" for our anniversary (which my wife liked which is all that counts) and they showed the previews for this movie.

    It looks remarkably good with the actor playing Lincoln looking the part and axeing his way through vampires with great enthusiasm. Add in the Civil War battles and I would not doubt that it does well.

    He's just a producer in a list of producers, that don't mean nothin.
    :shrug:

    By that criteria "Batman and Robin", was "by Tim Burton".
    :rolleyes:

    Based on a true story? Because Hollywood often takes great liberties with that phrase.

    This would probably be an average liberty taken.

    I thought Tim Burton had nothing to do with Batman and Robin.

    Contrariwise, Tim Burton has everything to do with Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
