Lincoln

Briefly: Disney, who is distributing this DreamWorks production, has set Steven Spielberg's new Lincoln historical drama for release this fall. Lincoln will first get an "exclusive release", I suppose meaning limited, starting November 9th (same day as Skyfall), before expanding wide on November 16th. Another quick platform release just like Spielberg's War Horse last year. Lincoln is the epic new historical biopic from Spielberg, with a screenplay by Tony Kushner, about the sixteenth President of the United States guiding the North to victory during the Civil War. Daniel Day-Lewis stars, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Sally Field, Jackie Earle Haley, Tommy Lee Jones, Lee Pace and David Strathairn. We'll keep any eye out for the trailer.

I really hope that there is a teaser or full trailer in front of Rises.

Oh man this is going to be so good. I can't wait to see how brutal the battle scenes will be. And I bet Daniel Day-Lewis will blow our minds.

This became my favorite movie when I first heard about it last year. It is going to be phenomenal.

Can't wait. Say what you want about Spielberg, but he's a master director and his historical films are excellent.

Spielberg has lost his game in recent years. But Daniel Day-Lewis is the ultimate method actor and always delivers his A-game to every project.

So did Day Lewis just barge into the white house and follow the president around as part of his whackadoo method training? I imagine him being able to do that, such is his tallness and intensity, he would just shout at the secret service agents and they would fall over. Or maybe he went and partied with Slick Willy for a few days, dude has porn stars around apparently. Or maybe he just had Jimmy Carter bore him to sleep every night (this is the most likely one).
