First official picture of Day-Lewis as iconic President

August 8th, 2012 by bash Comments

Here is your first official look at Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg’s historial epic, due out this November.

The image, from Entertainment Weekly, shows Day-Lewis capturing the likeness of the 16th US president, in only a way he can.

“Lincoln had a very, very complicated – and at the same time, extremely clear — inner life,” Spielberg said.

“He thought things out. He talked things out. He argued both sides of every issue. And he was very careful in making any decision. As a matter of fact, his opponents and his enemies criticized him often for being impossibly slow to a decision.”

Lincoln is scheduled for release on November 9.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
