‘Lincoln’ gets first official trailer, Daniel Day Lewis already nominated for Best Actor

Posted: September 14, 2012 in Movies

Sometimes you’re just born to do something.  Some people are born to be police officers, firefighters, accountants, or cashiers at McDonalds.  Daniel Day Lewis was probably born to play Abraham Lincoln.

The first trailer to Steven Spielberg’s biopic Lincoln was release earlier today amidst very little fanfare.  It’s actually kindof surprising how little attention this trailer received due to the actor who’s in it and the director who’s helming the film.  You almost can’t recognize Lewis as he completely immersed himself into the role and really transformed himself into the 16th president of the United States of America.  There were even rumors back when the movie was filming that Lewis would stay in character 24/7 as to not let go of his performance.  After seeing the trailer, I can probably say that’s about accurate.

Lincoln will garner a lot of attention come awards season early 2013 and to no one’s surprise.  The film has supporting actors that should garner that type of attention, like Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see this get at least 6 or more nominations at the Academy Awards next year.

Lincoln is out in theaters on November 16.
