'Lincoln' Trailer: Being Lincoln Is a Real Rough Time

September 14, 2012


Our stateliest awards bait is almost here: Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, starring Daniel Day-Lewis as the President, Sally Field as Mary Todd Lincoln, and Tommy Lee Jones as Tommy Lee Jones in Grandma's wig. In this full trailer for the film, first everyone yells at Lincoln, then Lincoln gets sick of it and starts yelling and finger-pointing back, then Tommy Lee Jones shows up and is like, "Hey, it's me. Tommy Lee Jones. Does this hair play?" But paired with a sweeping score, it all feels expectedly epic, harrowing, and triumphant. This thing is going to win so many small man statuettes.
