The first official still confirmed just how uncanny Day-Lewis looks as Abraham Lincoln, and a new poster for the film, which is due out this November, matches, if not surpasses, those expectations.

“Lincoln” will not take the typical approach to a biopic, but will instead focus on the final months of the president’s life. You can read the official synopsis below.
Steven Spielberg directs two-time Academy Award® winner Daniel Day-Lewis in “Lincoln,” a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President’s tumultuous final 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.
“Lincoln” opens in limited release on November 9 and goes wide November 16.
