Steven Spielberg’s ‘Lincoln’ Gets a Release Date
As it states at the Lincoln birthplace site:
For over a century people from around the world have come to rural Central Kentucky to honor the humble beginnings of our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln. His early life on Kentucky’s frontier shaped his character and prepared him to lead the nation through Civil War. The country’s first memorial to Lincoln, built with donations from young and old, enshrines the symbolic birthplace cabin.
And, now, at last a movie — from a significant director, Steven Spielberg, comes the highly-anticipated Abraham Lincoln biopic, ‘Lincoln.’ Apparently Disney has set an “exclusive release” date of November 9, 2012. After playing L.A. and New York — in order to be qualified for Academy Award nominations — the film will go wide one week later, on November 16.
Produced by DreamWorks and directed by the revered Spielberg, ‘Lincoln’ stars Daniel Day-Lewis as the nation’s 16th president — the man responsible for helping to put an end to slavery and inspiring tolerance and acceptance across the nation.
‘Lincoln’ co-stars Sally Field as Lincoln’s troubled wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, Tommy Lee Jones who is always great in any role and the quixotic James Spader.
Based on the novel ‘Team of Rivals’ by presidential historian Doris Kerns Goodwin, this will defintiely be a “contenduh” for the Oscar.
Kinda makes you wanna make a trip, doesn’t it?
