New 'Lincoln' Trailer: Lincoln Still Really Sick of It

October 4, 2012


In the wake of last night's presidential debates, here's a new Lincoln trailer to remind everyone that being the U.S. President is a super rough, demoralizing job, so give the guy a break for standing out there looking fed up with it when he'd rather be out celebrating his marriage with some Red Lobster. Beginning with some varyingly-relevant shots of other famous historical people and scenes, this latest preview focuses mostly on Lincoln trying to end both slavery and the war but coming up against all kinds of belligerence from David Straithairn, Jackie Earle Haley, Gale from Breaking Bad, Tommy Lee Jones, and Tommy Lee Jones's ridiculous wig. And if that's not enough, he's got Mary Todd on his back, all, "GOD HELP US for trapping you in a marriage with an older Sally Field! I can't stay Gidget forever!" And it's like, "Christ, I'm just stressed at work! Do YOU want to trying being Lincoln?"
