Not the first photo.

Not even the first one to get greenlit.

Still can't wait to see the movie, though.
 
2012-08-07 07:57:45 PM
Where the hell's the trailer for this damn movie.
 
2012-08-07 07:58:17 PM
It wouldn't at all surprise me if the movie gets an Oscar nomination for makeup. The likeness is uncanny.
 
2012-08-07 08:05:14 PM
Yeah, imma see this one
 
2012-08-07 08:11:57 PM
My dad the Civil War buff is already planning on dragging the boyfriend and I to see this, but the joke's on him, because we want to see it as badly as he does. I love Daniel Day-Lewis, and when he gets into a character, he gets into a character. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if along with that Oscar nomination for makeup, he gets one for Best Actor.
 
2012-08-07 08:12:41 PM
I bet there aren't even vampires in this one.
 
2012-08-07 08:15:25 PM
November 16th? I better get to reading "Team of Rivals".

I'd always read that Lincoln had a shrill, high-pitched voice. Will be interesting to see how Lewis plays it.

I expect this film to do for the top hat industry what "There Will Be Blood" did for the milkshake industry.
 
2012-08-07 08:22:43 PM
He has a look on his face like, "This play sucks. An hour left? Somebody shoot me."

I would not be surprised if he arranged to be shot in the head during the premiere
 
2012-08-07 08:27:07 PM
So what storyline are we going with in this movie? I'm assuming by the aging and full beard it's probably 1864-65?

\not that I like Lincoln per se, I just know DDL is going to do it 110% good, whatever it is

I believe the article said the movie is going to be set in the last 11 months of his life, so 1864-1865 is right on the money. I hope that we get to see DDL reading the Gettysburg Address, maybe even his 2nd inaugural address, which is IMO, the greatest speech ever given by an American President.

The movie is guaranteed to sweep almost every Oscar category it gets nominated for. Lewis is already a shoo-in for best actor. Oscar noms don't really have all that much to do with performance.

Coco LaFemme: I hope that we get to see DDL reading the Gettysburg Address


Well if it *is* in fact mid-1864 on, we'll miss it since the address was late 1863, unless it's a flashback, which wouldn't be that hard to string together, I'd imagine.

That's not funny, the sweet mother of Abraham Lincoln died from 'milk sickness'

The book is well worth reading. Really, it's the best biography of Lincoln I've read.

It's been on my shelf for a year - a gift - and I haven't touched it yet. I will as soon as I finish my current read.

DDL + Spielberg = good movie....how can that not equate?

Jackie Earl Haley as Alexander Stephens, the guy who voted against secession and yet was named VP of the Confederacy? Met with Lincoln at the Hampton Roads Conference to try and arrange a peace? Even voted back into Congress after the war and then as governor of Georgia? I really, really hope he has more than two lines because that dude was fascinating.

Daniel Day has been known to get into his roles a little to much, I hope he doesn't ask someone to shoot him the head from behind.

JEH is in it? Right on. He is an actor that I've not seen enough of. He's been so good in the few roles I've seen him in - he has grown into such a righteous character actor. I'd like this to be a breakthrough role for him, akin to Bryan Cranston's "Breaking Bad" (opening leading roles to him, that is).

If I saw that in a photo album or book, I wouldn't even do a double take. It's just a picture of Lincoln.

JEH, Daniel Day Lewis, and Joseph Gordan-Levitt? Throw in Gary Oldman and it pretty much has every amazing and intense actor there is right now.

I may have to pick up a biography of this character... he sounds amazingly, wonderfully, complicated.

Considering it's Spielberg, it'll almost certainly be the voice the public thinks Lincoln had, nothing like the voice he actually had.

If he tries to imitate Sam Waterston's Lincoln, that'll be good enough for me.

Lincoln was a weird looking guy. Every feature defies averages. Lewis may bring the character of Lincoln to life brilliantly but good luck finding anybody who really looks like Lincoln.

Spielberg is an insensitive bastard. We just lived through a theater shooting, and he's putting out a movie about someone who was shot in a theater.

Too soon, a-hole.
