AMC and Yahoo! Hosting Live Q&A With Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day Lewis For ‘Lincoln’

These are the kind of events that make me so happy to be a film fan. On Wednesday, October 10, Yahoo! and AMC theaters will be partnering together to bring a live question and answer session with Steven Spielberg and actor Daniel Day Lewis, where they’ll talk about their upcoming film, ‘Lincoln’. Spielberg is my favorite filmmaker, and I always love listening to him talk about his movies, and this has been one of my most highly anticipated movies for quite some time, going as far back as when Liam Neeson was originally attached to the role. I love Spielberg’s history epics, and the fact that has gotten Daniel Day Lewis to star as the sixteenth President is nothing short of incredible, so it’s safe to say that I can’t wait for this to be out. I’m definitely excited to get a chance to listen to them talk about the movie before its release, and I really wish I could be one of the lucky few in New York City next Wednesday to be there in person for it.

The event will begin at 7 p.m., eastern time, and will be streaming live on Yahoo! movies for those not in attendance in New York, or the nine other cities across the nation. Are you excited for ‘Lincoln’? Will you be tuning into this live Q&A? Let me know in the comments below, and hit the jump for the full press release. ‘Lincoln’ will be released on November 16, 2012.
