Emancipate a Blu-ray Copy of "Lincoln" From Us


Five months and two weeks ago, Steven Spielberg brought forth into our cinemas Lincoln, a biopic of our 16th president as played by Daniel Day-Lewis. And when I say played by Daniel Day-Lewis, what I really mean is that Day-Lewis borrowed a time machine and went back in time to steal Lincoln's identity, body, mind, and mannerisms to give us one of the most disturbingly realistic portrayals of Abraham Lincoln ever. For all of that time traveling effort, Day-Lewis won himself a Best Actor Oscar (though it's entirely possible he kept going back in time and altering the past until he achieved that outcome, but that's another conversation altogether). The film is packed with some great performances by the likes of Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and if you haven't seen it yet, or you have and you liked it, this is your chance to own it.

We're giving away two Blu-ray and DVD combo packs of Lincoln, and if you want to win one, just keep reading.

Inspired by the true-life events confronting Abraham Lincoln and his monumental moral and political challenge to amend the United States Constitution to permanently abolish slavery, Lincoln is a rich and compelling historical and human drama that has been hailed as one of the best film of the year. In-depth bonus features on the Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack takes viewers behind-the-scenes of director Spielberg’s life-long fascination with Lincoln and the 12 years it took to bring the story of one of history’s and mankind’s greatest triumphs to the screen.

From DreamWorks Pictures and Twentieth Century Fox, in association with Participant Media, Lincoln is directed by Steven Spielberg, produced by Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy, with a screenplay by Tony Kushner, based in part on the book “Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln” by Doris Kearns Goodwin.
