Politics, for all intents and purposes, is pretty boring. Unless Michael Bay decides to become a senator and make an explosive phillibuster or two, things are pretty much cut and dry in that realm.

Oscar bait magnet Lincoln has chosen the right time to release though, and with the American political racing starting to heat up, this could be a film with some relevance that will attract the crowds. Because what the world needs right now, is more master debaters.

Sure, there’s a few familiar lines and scenes in this trailer, but overall  it’s basically a whole new set of footage, wrapped around new scenes and moments that showcase Sally Fields as Mary Todd Lincoln and Tommy Lee Jones as Thaddeus Stevens, with some stirring visuals and music. Kinda makes you wish that more politicians would take a few cues from it, don’t it?

Lincoln also stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Stuhlbarg, Jackie Earle-Haley, Jared Harris, Lee Pace, James Spader, Walton Goggins, John Hawkes and David Strathairn and is out next year January.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
