Lincoln trailer, an Academy Awards warm up
It's been rumored for so long now, a lot of people thought it wouldn't happen. And it's been almost two years since Daniel Day-Lewis replaced Liam Neeson as our nation's 16th President, in a film of course. That film is Lincoln, and is being directed by little-known director, Steven Spielberg. Check out the trailer below and my thoughts after.
Everyone involved is at the top of their game. Day-Lewis is going to be his usual, incredible self. Tommy Lee Jones, Sally Field, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jackie Earle Haley and Jared Harris round out the supporting cast. I like the tone, production design and acting in the first trailer. Spielberg is going to tell an incredible story and will have all the help he needs. I like what I see so far, and let's hope the movie continues what we see here.
