    We've seen nothing but what seems to be Spielberg magically finding Abraham Lincoln alive somewhere...But seriously. DDL is Honest Fucking Abe. Whoever says he doesn't look like him is blind.

    An acting nomination for Daniel Day-Lewis seems inevitable. I think he'd find it hard to mess it up.

    This definitely tops my list of most anticipated films of the year. An actor and director of unparalleled prowess collaborating on a film about one of the greatest men from American history.

    Have seen both of the trailers, and so far it looks absolutley astonishing! I hope it is as good and extrodinary as it seems, and gets the Oscar nominations (Wins!) it deserves. (Best picture, Best actor, Best director, Best adapted screenplay)
