Re: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter produced by Tim Burton in the work

I leave this thread for ten minutes and pretty soon there's penis pictures...

Anyway, just like happened with Captain America, the movie is getting a name change in foreign markets. Maybe it's understandable that in some countries, they want to make it "President" Lincoln for people who've never heard of the guy, but this is what throws me, completely generic vampire related names:

In Italy and Portugal, meanwhile, the title character is gone entirely. The film will be called "The Legend of the Vampire Hunter" and "Secret Diary of the Vampire Hunter," respectively, in those countries.
They've dropped the whole point of the movie! Are they trying to con audiences into thinking this is part of the Twilight franchise or something? Or maybe The Vampire Diaries is big overseas? (At least in that case, there's a legitimate Civil War connection; seeing Abe cleave Damon Salvatore's treasonous Confederate skull in two would be worth the price of admission by itself. )
