Poster For Spielberg's Lincoln Boasts A Profile For The Ages
With a profile more famous than probably any other Americans, Abraham Lincoln doesn't have to do much to distinguish himself from a crowd. Steven Spielberg, director of the upcoming biopic Lincoln, knows this perfectly well, and with Daniel Day-Lewis looking to give another transformative performance as our 16th President, he's put the entire focus on that famous craggy visage in the movie's first poster, which you can see below.
It's kind of a little terrifying, as if Abraham Lincoln somehow time-traveled to the era of high-res photography, posed for this photo, then vanished back into history. Who knows how well the impression will hold up once we see the character in action, but history has taught us not to doubt Day-Lewis and his unnerving ability to slip into a role.
With a supporting cast that includes Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jared Harris, David Strathairn, John Hawkes and many others, plus a script from playwriting legend Tony Kushner (with Paul Webb), Lincoln has ticked pretty much every box for Oscar season success. We'll see if it lives up to all that potential when it finally comes to theaters on November 9.
