One of my favorite films of last year was Steven Spielberg’s ‘Lincoln‘, which stars Daniel Day-Lewis in his Academy Award winning performance as the sixteenth Presiden of the United States. I always enjoy Spielberg’s historical epics, and ‘Lincoln’ was no different. The film, based on the novel, ‘Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln’, which explored the framing of the thirteenth amendment, and the last few months of his life. It’s a truly moving excellent film that explores a part of the history of the United States that isn’t always touched on.
The film features an impressive cast that includes Tommy Lee Jones, Sally Field, Joseph Gordon Levitt, and James Spader, all who give some of their finest performances to date. I’ve been looking forward to getting a chance to re-watch this film, so I’m excited to see that Walt Disney Studios will be releasing the film on March 26, 2013, on blu-ray and DVD. There will be a four disc Ultimate Collector’s edition, two disc blu-ray edition, and a single one disc DVD version. Hit the jump to see the differences between the different releases, as well as a trailer for this two time Academy Award winning film.
Many actors through the years have had the chance to portray one of America’s most famous Presidents. But on Wednesday Disney released the one sheet for their upcoming movie “Lincoln” which will star Daniel Day-Lewis as the 16th President of the United States.
A Steven Spielberg film, there is an impressive supporting cast around Day-Lewis as Sally Field will play Mary Todd Lincoln, and the film will also feature Joseph Gordon Levitt as their son Robert Todd Lincoln and Tommy Lee Jones.
The film will focus on President Lincoln’s tumultuous final months in office and is scheduled for a November release.
