I’m so impressed with Daniel Day-Lewis as an actor. The man is known for his total transformations into the person he is portraying. As you can see by this newly released movie poster below, and the previous image released, Day-Lewis has done it again with Abraham Lincoln.
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. The DreamWorks Pictures/Twentieth Century Fox film, in association with Participant Media, is being in U.S. theaters by Walt Disney Pictures with limited release on November 9, 2012 and wider release on November 16, 2012.
