DreamWorks has unveiled the Lincoln poster featuring Daniel Day-Lewis as President Abraham Lincoln. Directed by Steven Spielberg, this Lincoln biopic examines the 16th President's last few months in office. "In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come" - DreamWorks.

Also starring Sally Field, David Strathairn, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, James Spader, Hal Holbrook and Tommy Lee Jones, Lincoln was adapted for the screen by Tony Kushner from the book Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln by Doris Kearns Goodwin. Set for release in November, Lincoln looks to be DreamWorks' Oscar entry this year.
