Lincoln Poster Header

History tells us that the last few months of Abraham Lincoln’s life were spent trying to end the Civil War and put a stop to slavery. The 16th President of the United States was successful on both fronts, but he was tragically assassinated by John Wilkes Booth. Today, we get to see a glimpse of Steven Spielberg‘s vision and see Daniel Day-Lewis reenact those last few months that changed the face of America.

Check out the trailer for Lincoln here below.

Even though that sweeping sound from John Williams’ sounds an awful a lot like War Horse, there is much to like about this trailer. For instance, the set pieces that are used in the film, they don’t look like glorified historic trinkets; they actually look like pieces of history pulled from that time.

Then there are the performances. Lincoln isn’t a full-on biopic, instead it focuses on those last few months of Lincoln’s life trying to bring an end to slavery and bring the war to a peaceful conclusion. So we see all the conflicts that this war has brought and how it has affected both sides.

Lincoln also stars Sally Field, David Strathairn, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, James Spader, Hal Holbrook, and Tommy Lee Jones. The film will open on November 9th in limited theaters, then it expands for a full release on November 16.

Here’s the full synopsis for Lincoln:

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.

Starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, David Strathairn, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, James Spader, Hal Holbrook and Tommy Lee Jones, “Lincoln” is produced by Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy, with a screenplay by Tony Kushner, based in part on the book “Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln” by Doris Kearns Goodwin.
