This Lincoln Trailer gives me goosebumps for many reasons. Abraham Lincoln is my favorite president to study, what a remarkable man he was. Daniel Day-Lewis in my opinion is the greatest actor in the world, and Steven Spielberg is one of the top fifteen directors who has ever lived. Put it all together and you get what looks to be a promising film in, ‘Lincoln.’
What an extraordinary early look at Daniel Day-Lewis as Lincoln. When it comes to Bio-Pics I have always said that capturing the mannerisms and speech pattern is more important then the comparative look of anyone who plays the real person. But in the case of Lincoln, Daniel Day-Lewis really is the spitting image of one of America’s greatest Presidents.
The honest Abe film is due out in November and the trailer was just released an hour ago. The film is adapted from Doris Kearns Goodwin’s seminal “Team Of Rivals,” by “Munich” screenwriter Tony Kushner. It will focus on the last four months of Abraham Lincoln’s life.
Along with Daniel Day-Lewis the film co- stars Sally Field, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gulliver McGrath, Secretary of State William Seward (David Strathairn) and rival Thaddeus Stevens (Tommy Lee Jones). The cast also includes Jackie Earle Haley, Jared Harris, Lee Pace, James Spader, John Hawkes, Bruce McGill, Adam Driver, Walton Goggins, Michael Stuhlbarg, Tim Blake Nelson, David Oyelowo and Hal Holbrook. Can’t wait!
