Synopsis: As the Civil War nears its end, President Abraham Lincoln clashes with members of his cabinet over the issue of abolishing slavery
Release Date: November 16, 2012
Thoughts: Steven Spielberg is one of those directors who seem to churn out movies with the greatest of ease. Almost under the radar, he plans and plots his productions so the actual act of filming them is nearly secondary. The long in the works Lincoln is finally readying for its November release and it looks to be another winning notch in Spielberg’s well-worn cinematic belt. Daniel Day-Lewis looked great in the promo shots and looks/sounds better in the trailer. Being born on Lincoln’s birthday always made me feel a little closer to Honest Abe — after seeing him hunt vampires in the murky Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter I’m ready to experience his story told by a whole crew of master craftspeople. The Oscar gauntlet has been thrown down by Spielberg and Lincoln…can’t wait for November.
