Daniel-Day Lewis as Abe Lincoln

http://www.dailyblam.com/news/2011/1...80%99s-lincoln



Quote:
Lincoln is directed by Stephen Spielberg and stars two-time Academy Award winning actor Daniel Day Lewis (Gangs of New York) as president Abraham Lincoln. The film will chronicle Abe's efforts to abolish slavery and end the civil war. Recent reports say that Daniel Day Lewis has not broken his Lincoln accent since filming commenced and is so engrossed in his character his “real name doesn’t even appear on the call sheet.”

Joseph Gordon Levitt (Inception) will portray Lincoln's eldest son Robert Todd Lincoln, who was the only one of Abe's children to live past their teen years. Tommy Lee Jones (No Country For Old Men) is being tapped to play Thaddeus Stevens, a Republican leader and congressman from Pennsylvania who was vital in helping Abe's efforts to rid slavery. Sally Field is set to play Abe's wife Mary Todd. Jared Harris has signed on to play Union general Ulysses S. Grant. Other actors on board the project in minor roles include David Oyelowo, Hal Holbrook, James Spader, John Hawkes, Tim Blake Nelson, Bruce McGill, David Costabile, Byron Jennings, Dakin Matthews, Boris McGiver, Gloria Reuben, Jeremy Strong, David Warshofsky and Joseph Cross.

Lincoln began filming this fall in Virginia for a targeted release in late 2012 under Disney's Touchstone label via DreamWorks Pictures.

Having lived in springfield, ill and spent many afternoons at Lincolns New Salem near petersburg illinois and currently living very near a town where Lincoln famously debated Douglas, the Lincoln museum twice... i've basically been numbed to the entire idea of the man, it gets old living around it.

But, this movie is going to be great and i hope it makes me a little more proud to have seen many of his homes, offices, walked in his footsteps etc.

Lewis is going to kill it.

What are you in the mood for? Fast-paced action? Go with Argo. Lincoln is good, but its pace is slow.

Both are great, though.

I saw it a couple of weeks ago on the Disney cruise ship. It was a good movie, but it was very slow paced (not exactly an action flick). And it's actually misnamed; it's really not that much about Lincoln. It's about the months surrounding the passage of the 13th Amendment. Powerful stuff, to be sure, but I was expecting Lincoln's life story--childhood, formative years, the young Lincoln as he got into first law and then politics. The film starts with him already re-elected, already having signed the Emancipation Proclamation, the Civil War is almost over, and the film is basically about how he wants to push through the 13th Amendment even though his supporters tell him not to try it. (The overwhelming belief was that even the Northerners only wanted the war to end, and would not support the Amendment.) Then again, if it were called "Freedom", it would probably make little money.

Daniel Day-Lewis is great, of course, as he always is. He's definitely winning an Oscar. He portrays Lincoln in his last months as weary, slow-moving, almost telegraphing his impending death... and yet, with his occasional anecdotal speeches, displays the persuasive and subversive charm Lincoln had. (And with a few well-timed outburts, displays his passion and power.)

I am very much looking forward to seeing this film when it makes its way to our discount theater.

I think a Washington pic should be in the making.

That sucks man. Kevin James movies are the most overpromoted pieces of shit. That stupid zoo movie he did had billboards up for months.

And **** all you people who say Lincoln is too slow moving. God forbid Hollywood comes out with a movie that doesn't involve comic book characters and explosions. Lincoln is a fantastic movie but a lot of you will put off seeing it because there's no transformers in it.

By my count, three people in this thread have seen it (you, myself and JD). Both JD and I said that it was slow, not that it's too slow. I think it's just undeniable that the pace of Lincoln is slow. Maybe that's why it's 2.5 hours long, but isn't really an epic. There's a lot of dialogue, negotiating, and speeches.

But yeah, I think Transformers as Union soldiers would have been cool to see.

How was Tommy Lee Jones in this flick? I thought he had the perfect opportunity to ruin this.

Mrs. OTW58 and I were going to see it last night, but decided not to.

We typically won't bother seeing a movie unless it's being shown in one of the 21+ theaters with assigned seating. We only go 3-4 times a year, and I'm spoiled by having an assigned seat, showing up 10 minutes early instead of an hour to get a good seat, no teenagers talking/texting through the film, having access to booze, etc.

Figured opening weekend we wouldn't have a problem.

Instead, all of the 21+ theaters were showing the ****ing Twilight movie.
