As a kid, I read my grandfather’s copy of Carl Sandburg’s two volume biography of Lincoln, and since then I’ve been hooked on the 16th President of the United States. I know for a fact I’m not the only one excited about seeing Daniel Day-Lewis in the title role of Stephen Spielberg’s movie ‘Lincoln’, as the trailer for the film has almost 600,000 views since it was posted this morning. When I saw it today, it literally took my breathe away. Not only does Daniel Day-Lewis look like Lincoln, from all I’ve read about him through the years, he has the President’s mannerisms nailed. The movie has everything going for it with an amazing story, cast, and Spielberg guiding the project. Take a look at the trailer and see if you agree it’s like watching history come alive.
I’ll be in line opening day, November 9.
