As expected, the fifth and final film of the 'Twilight' series opened huge. In fact, 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2' had the second biggest opening of the franchise and when you consider how huge these things tend to open, that's a big accomplishment. However, this was not just a victorious weekend for Twi-hards -- just about every film in the top ten had something to cheer about.
Although it doesn't open in wide release until next week, Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln' has already started gaining traction as a major Oscar contender, with Daniel Day-Lewis' performance as the sixteenth President of the United States being one of the most talked about roles of the year. However, Day-Lewis is supported by one of the deepest character actor benches in recent memory and two new clips from the film give us a taste of the film's supporting cast.
If its portrait of him is accurate, then Abraham Lincoln would have loved Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln.' The film is exactly like the man at its center: thoughtful and talkative, equally adept at spinning tales and navigating the murky waters of backroom politics. It suggests that well before Ronald Reagan, our 16th President was truly our nation's Great Communicator.
If you're still in the political mood after last night, we have a few presidential treats for you in the form of three clips from Steven Speilberg's 'Lincoln.' Steven Spielberg's latest is opening in limited release this week, but you can preview Daniel Day-Lewis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones' acting chops right now!
'Lincoln' star Daniel Day-Lewis is intense as an actor, we know that. He likes to get in character and stay in character. The rumor was that he stayed in character as Abraham Lincoln for a full year prior to the start of production. And this latest story proves he stayed in character all the way through filming. Even when texting his fellow actors.
Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln' is a biopic we've had our eyes on for some time now. That first trailer was breathtaking and looked like Spielberg in big epic mode, and Daniel Day-Lewis looks startlingly good as one of our nation's most beloved presidents. The film screened in New York tonight, so what are the critics saying on Twitter?
