Spielberg’s Lincoln Has an Official Release Date

LincolnToday, DreamWorks announced the release date fro Steven Spielberg’s new Abraham Lincoln Bio-Pic, “Lincoln.” The film will hit theaters on november 9th and expand wide on November 16th.


The film was scribed by Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning writer Tony Kushner. Lincoln‘ has a wonderful cast that includes Daniel Day Lewis, one of the best actors of his generation, as Abraham Lincoln. The also stars Sally Field as Mary Todd Lincoln.




This is earlier than last year’s Spielberg double hitters of War Horse and The Adventures of Tintin arrived in the states, a move perhaps exuding more confidence amidst the strong awards season. But like last year, I doubt we’ll see this one getting a premiere on the fall film festival circuit, as producers previously revealed they want to steer clear of the current presidential election.


The context of the film was taken from  the best-selling book “Team of Rivals,” by Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Doris Kearns Goodwin. The script will focus on the political collision of Lincoln and the powerful men of his cabinet on the road to abolition and the end of the Civil War. Don’t be surprised to see Daniel Day Lewis back on that Oscar state.
