    'Lincoln' Marches On

    Lincoln, Disney’s much buzzed-about Oscar contender, fared well in its expansion from 11 theaters into 1,775 locations, grossing $21.0 million over the Friday-to-Sunday period. Lincoln opened slightly higher than fellow Oscar front-runner Argo, which kicked off its run with $19.8 million last month (and now has $92.0 million total).

    Thanks to strong reviews and an “A” CinemaScore grade from audiences, 64 percent of which were 50 or older, the $65 million Steven Spielberg-directed film should hold up just as well — especially because older patrons typically take their time in coming out to the theater, and the upcoming holidays frees up many working adults’ schedules to go to the movies. Spielberg’s last film, War Horse, which was less well-received, galloped all the way to $79.9 million over the holidays after a $7.5 million opening weekend. With awards season right around the corner, Lincoln could make it to $100 million with ease.

    Re: 'Lincoln' Marches On

    When I was at the movies yesterday there were large numbers of people in line to see Lincoln. Very encouraging. Think I will wait a week or two since I have an aversion to packed theaters but I am looking forward to seeing it. Interesting that EW describes Lincoln as a "Disney" movie which isn't completely accurate. Dreamworks makes the movie with several financing partners, Disney distributes the movie through their Touchstone division. Disney has no say so in what movies Spielberg and company make, the Disney contract is to just distribute Dreamworks movies that are produced. Disney only distributes the Dreamworks live action films. Dreamworks Animation is completely separate and not part of the Disney distribution deal.

    Re: 'Lincoln' Marches On

    I just saw this comment on a Yahoo Article about Daniel Day-Lewis as Lincoln and how Oscar worthy his performance is:

    "Daniel Day-Lewis deserves an Oscar just for breathing."

    Very true but it made me giggle....

    He is great in this movie. Really the best part of this terribly long and slow movie.
