Steven Spielberg’s ‘Lincoln’ lands key November release date

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln” has staked its first claim on the still-developing Oscar season … and in doing so, has made a serious enemy in James Bond. Let the games begin.

Disney has revealed that “Lincoln” – with Daniel Day-Lewis playing our nation’s 16th President — will open on Nov. 9 in limited release, expanding wide the following week on Nov. 16.

Spielberg was busy shooting the historical drama last winter (while also actively campaigning for his own “The Adventures of Tintin” and “War Horse”) in Richmond, Virginia. The plum release date puts “Lincoln” ahead of what’s sure to be a busy December, and also gets the anticipated drama in theaters in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. Excellent strategizing on Disney’s part.

Sony, however, might disagree. By opening in limited release on Nov. 9, “Lincoln” will open opposite “Skyfall,” the latest James Bond movie with Daniel Craig in the signature tuxedo and Aston Martin. The studios could argue that both films are going after different audiences, though that’s not entirely accurate. With “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2” eating up screens, adults will be looking for any form of alternate programming. Now they’ll have two serious dramas competing for attention.
