Steven Spielberg's Lincoln Available for Pre-order

Posted January 10, 2013 04:20 PM by Webmaster

Walt Disney StudiosOne of the year's biggest films, Steven Spielberg's Lincoln (2012), is now available for pre-order. Starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, David Strathairn, James Spader, and Tommy Lee Jones, Lincoln will be available for purchase online and in stores across the nation on March 26th.

Exact technical specs, region coding status and supplemental features for this upcoming release are yet to be detailed.

Steven Spielberg's 19th-century political biopic stars Daniel Day-Lewis as America's 16th president Abraham Lincoln. The film focuses on the last few months of Lincoln's life, which not only saw the ending of slavery despite dogged opposition from many inside Lincoln's own cabinet, but also the Union victory in the American Civil War. The supporting cast includes Sally Field as Lincoln's wife Mary Todd Lincoln, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Lincoln's son Robert and Tommy Lee Jones as Radical Republican Congressional leader Thaddeus Stevens.

Cool! I've seen this twice now, easily my favorite of the 9 films nominated at the Oscars for Best Picture!

Not that the other films aren't good (I haven't seen Django Unchained, Silver Lining's Playbook or Life of Pi yet), but Lincoln is my favorite!

Daniel Day Lewis is phenomenal! Dare I say I thought Joaquin Phoenix gave a better performance in The Master? Maybe... both are two of the best all year!

Can't wait to pick this one up.

Great film with beautiful costumes, make-up, music, and cinematography. Should make for a wonderful transfer.

Oh, and spoiler alert, Lincoln dies at the end.

Cool; can't wait to see the bonus features for this. Hoping for a pristine transfer. Saw this twice in the theater; it's fantastic. If it takes home Best Actor and Adapted Screenplay, I'll be happy. Anything more is a bonus Oscar-wise.

I was blessed to be able to obtain an official Dreamworks-authenticated poster from the NYC Film Festival premiere of this. It is signed by Spielberg, DD Lewis, Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones, James Spader, Joe Gordon-Levitt, Jackie Earle Haley, Tim Blake Nelson, John Hawkes, Dane DeHaan, and David Oyelowo. Needless to say, I loved the film and this is a day one!

More interested in the eventual release of Munich, though DDL was great in this as always.

This was such a good movie. Daniel Day Lewis should take home the Oscar right now.

Question: Where's Skyfall?

AlanUK,

I'm sure something will be announced shortly. The US/Canada release is being handled by Disney, while Fox will be distributing it worldwide.

Will this be a director's cut, special edition, are just the theatrical release or possibly an ultimate edition? I want to see the bonus features (if any) that will be included. If bonus materials are included will it be about the making of the film, documentarians on the president and possibly the author of the book. I get the feeling they're rushing this to market just because of the oscar hype. I'm sure the video and audio will be spectacular. How about an isolated score track. I hope this film will win all 12 oscars it is just that good.

+1 @Belloso and Nathanp. DDL was such a perfect reincarnation of Lincoln in every way imaginable. Such a shame that the storyline they chose to pursue didn't live up to the pairing. While I would label it a respectable, somewhat solid movie, it was a still a major disappointment to me given Lewis' remarkable performance.

Day 1 purchase for me. I've read a lot of books on Lincoln and DDL was perfect in the role of Lincoln. If he doesn't win Best Actor it will be a crime.

This will be a blind buy for me, I really wanted to see it at the cinema. Hope we see a nice looking steelbook or digibook on top of the regular release.

Cheers!

Loved this movie (had some complaints about the ending, but nothing that ruined the movie). Great historical Drama that isn't so much about Lincoln as it is about the thirteenth amendment. Daniel Day Lewis is amazing and I wish I could see more of him in the role (I'd love a directors cut that covered more of his life)

Hi wdm81. Even in light of my comments about being disappointed in the movie, I could not agree with you more. The ending was really bad and unnecessary. (The quick pan in on the kid clutching at the rail was not only needless, but tasteless IMO). It was a fantastic historical drama about the innerworkings of a government trying to get an amendment passed. Very well done and I enjoyed it. But the movie was titled Lincoln. And DDL was fabulous in the role. For me, we simply didn't get enough story about the man himself (and again, for whom the movie was titled), for me to say the movie was brilliant. Sometimes making the artisitic choice to leave the audience wanting more is a great thing. In this instance, for me it was not.

Wdm81 - The original script by Kushner was 500 pages, which translates to roughly 8 hrs, 20 mins. Spielberg pared it down to the most intriguing & significant part of his life, which was getting the 13th Amendment passed. I don't know how much more material they actually shot, but it all would have revolved around that specific time in his life.
