IHC Movie Reviews: Lincoln (2012)

Lincoln, the Steven Spielberg helmed film chronicling the last four months of our sixteenth president’s life is in theatres now, and it’s getting quite the praise.

Check out the first trailer for Spielberg’s ‘Lincoln’

This looks like it might be pretty incredible. It looks like it’s got an A-list cast from top to bottom with some great acting and directing. This has Oscar bait written all over it.

First official poster for Steven Spielberg’s ‘Lincoln’
And the official synopsis:
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.

First look at Daniel Day Lewis in full costume and make-up as Abraham Lincoln
A long time ago, we saw some set pictures of Daniel Day Lewis as Lincoln in Steven Spielberg’s upcoming Lincoln biopic, but here he is in full regalia and make-up and lighting. 
TEAR DOWN THIS WALL. 
Oh wait, that was the wrong guy. Whatever.

First look at Daniel Day Lewis sporting his new Abraham Lincoln beard
While Spielberg’s Lincoln has been shooting since October, most of the filming in Richmond so far has been done indoors, but here’s a look at Daniel Day Lewis taking a lunch break, sporting his brand new Lincoln beard. Even out of costume, it’s pretty easy to imagine Lewis as Lincoln with the coat and top hat.
