Spielberg Takes on History.
As promised, the first full-length trailer for Academy Award-winning director Steven Spielberg's new historical biopic, Lincoln, was released online last night. Based on Pullitzer Prize-winning biographer and historian Doris Kearns Goodwin's book Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln, and adapted for the screen by Tony Kushner (Munich), Lincoln focuses on the last days of President Abraham Lincoln's (Daniel Day-Lewis) life, chronicling the many clashes he had with his cabinet members over the abolition of slavery and the Civil War. Historical accuracy, gorgeous sets, an incredible cast and Spielberg at the helm, this one has "Oscar" written all over it.more oscar-buzz trailers
