Spielberg’s Lincoln Film Set for November

Based on the hugely popular book, Team of Rivals, Steven Spielberg’s upcoming film Lincoln had its first full-length trailer released this week:

Any time a movie’s lead role is played by Daniel Day Lewis, there’s tons of potential.

I read Team of Rivals and thought it was very good, especially the parts about Lincoln and the Republicans before the war.  Doris Kearns Goodwin has been a lib since before her days covering LBJ back in the ’60s, and we know Spielberg’s an Obamabot.

However, the film is set for release on November 16, after the election, and I hope Spielberg didn’t try to make a “relevant” historical movie by inundating it with modern sensibilities and carefully slipping in references to modern concerns.  I don’t need to see 21st Century winks in a movie about a time 150 years ago.  Doris Kearns Goodwin was very good at not making her book political like that.  Some of the lib stuff came out here and there, but only in a few premises she had and interpretations she made.

Regardless, I’ll be seeing this movie opening weekend.  I already anticipate that it will be better than that most recent Lincoln-related film.
