Lincoln dated into awards season » Blog ArchiveDisney Dates Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln' Into Awards-Season Fray -

The Abraham Lincoln
movie starring Daniel Day-Lewis as
Honest Abe will get an exclusive
release November 9, 2012, and
expand wide November 16, Disney
just announced. That puts it squarely
in the midst of Oscar season. The
Steven Spielberg-directed Lincoln is a
DreamWorks production; Fox and
Participant Media are partners in the
film and Fox will handle international distribution. It had
previously not had a release date, but now will make for some
pretty extreme counterprogramming with another anticipated pic:
Summit’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 also opens
wide November 16. Four years in the making, Lincoln is from a
screenplay by Tony Kushner based on the bestselling book Team
Of Rivals by Doris Kerns Goodwin. It revolves around the Lincoln
and the powerful men of his cabinet on the road to abolition and
the end of the Civil War. Sally Field, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tommy
Lee Jones and James Spader co-star.
