See Daniel Day-Lewis in Steven Spielberg’s ‘Lincoln’ Trailer


The trailer for Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln has landed, and the awards contender shows the American President’s doppelganger, Daniel Day-Lewis, commanding the screen. The film is based on Doris Kearns Goodwin’s Team of Rivals and takes a look at the life of one of the most revered political leaders — when he’s not busy killing vampires. Is it schmaltzy Spielberg? How many terrible wigs can you spot? Find out in the clip past the break. Spielberg aimed to feature the man that Lincoln was and not the “monument,” according to Slash Film. Sally Field, David Strathairn, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, James Spader, Hal Holbrook, and Tommy Lee Jones also star. The film opens November 9, with a wide release on November 16.
