I have always been a sucker for U.S. History and especially for anything to do with Abraham Lincoln. He was a figure in history that could have been second to no one. The story of his life is indeed an interesting one and I just hope that Steven Spielberg‘s take on the life of Lincoln does him justice. Of course, Spielberg pretty much turns everything he touches into gold, so I am not worried about that, and after seeing how this trailer blew me away, I am now even more stoked for Lincoln the movie. On top of this amazing trailer, you have a star studded cast with many of my favorite actors.
