Ahead of the curve: Weekly pop culture calendar

We know what you are thinking - why would anyone want to watch "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter"? Sounds like a cheesy B movie. But hear us out.

The film is based on the brilliant 2010 mashup novel of the same name by Seth Grahame-Smith. The New York Times best-seller is like a biography of Lincoln but with extra notes from his secret diaries that reveal his secret identity as a vampire killer.

The movie follows a similar premise, and such an insane-yet-intriguing idea would of course be produced by Tim Burton. Smith's other famous work is "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," which peppers Jane Austen's classic with the walking dead. If this does well, maybe we can expect "Zombies" to be adapted as well. "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" comes to theaters on June 22.
