Lincoln - Official Movie Trailer

I have high hopes for Lincoln, the Steven Spielberg movie that is set to open in November.  The official trailer has just been released and it certainly has "the look."  A few people are already complaining about "the voice" in which Lincoln speaks in the film, but contemporaries of Lincoln are known to have spoken of his rather high pitched voice and soft delivery, so I don't believe this is any kind of misstep on the part of Spielberg or actor Daniel Day-Lewis.  They know what they are doing.




I see that Tommy Lee Jones has a role in the movie, definitely a good thing, but I have to admit that I'm a little uneasy seeing Sally Field walking around as what appears to be Mary Todd Lincoln.  I hope I'm wrong about that and that she pulls it off but...

  3. Debbie, I agree that Daniel Day-Lewis is a brilliant actor, one of the very best working today, for sure. I'm really hoping I'm not getting my hopes up to high on this one...that can be bad.

  4. Susan, does Korea get American movies fairly quickly? When I lived in the UK, they sometimes opened in London a week or two before going national in the States. That wasn't common in Paris, but they got American movies there pretty quickly, too.
