First trailer for “Lincoln”

The first trailer is out for “Lincoln,” a Steven Spielberg movie with a Tony Kushner script about President Lincoln (played by Daniel Day-Lewis) that also stars Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones, David Strathairn, Jared Harris, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, James Spader, Lee Pace, John Hawkes, Adam Driver and Hal Holbrook.

Based on the trailer, this…looks like medicine. Well-shot, beautifully constructed, artfully acted, soulless-seeming medicine to be prescribed in the event of dangerously low levels of prestige in movie theaters. That’s just my view from the trailer, of course. I’m sure Day-Lewis will be astonishing, because QED, and I’m sure the movie will really look wonderful, and I’m sure the rest of the cast will be great. This is a must-see because of the people involved. I’m not sure if it’s also a “I want to see that” kind of movie.
