First Poster For Spielberg’s Lincoln
The first poster for Lincoln, Steven Spielberg’s biopic which stars Daniel Day-Lewis, has arrived, and it shows off the double Oscar-winning star’s remarkable transition into the titular president.
Known as a committed method actor, it will come as no surprise to most that, with the aid of extensive makeup and costuming, Daniel Day-Lewis more than looks the part.
We previously reported on the first official image of Lewis in his Abraham Lincoln gear, but the first poster shows the star off in an even more impressive fashion.
Oscars are already being predicted for the film, particularly in the male leading actor category, though this is far from surprising for a film that contains an actor of such prestige in a legendary biographical role.
Lincoln, which also stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tommy Lee Jones and Sally Field, is scheduled for a UK release 25 January next year. You can see the poster below (click to enlarge).
