Also when does this come out before or after the avengers?
The Avengers is out in late May, this film in late June, about a month later.
I was just watching the trailer in HD over on Youtube and one of the commentors mentioned something, that the film is actually similar in theme to the old Victorian "Penny Dreadful's", the 1p daily horror strips in papers.
Sort of Mr. Lincoln meets Varney the Vampire. Which makes it that little bit more awesome, retro wise.
