All right Maniacs this one bends the genre we cover, a lot. However, many of you have been sending in notifications of Lincoln’s teaser, photos, and the trailer to the office. With that much demand we have decided to post the trailer for those that wish to talk about it.
The film does look incredible and it is directed by one of our favorite directors.
Here is the official word on Lincoln from Disney and Dreamworks: “Steven Spielberg directs two-time Academy Award winner Daniel Day-Lewis in Lincoln, a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President’s tumultuous final months in office. In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come”.
The film stars: Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, David Strathairn, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, James Spader, Hal Holbrook and Tommy Lee Jones.
It is directed by Steven Spielberg, produced by Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy, and is based on the book “Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln” by Doris Kearns Goodwin.
It will of course feature a score by John Williams.
The film is not yet rated.
