Talk about tapping a demographic. With the film already up over $170 million at home helping push the worldwide total over $220 million, it’s safe to say that Steven Spielberg‘s “Lincoln” is a box office smash, and a critical one as well. And yet, the movie has faded from the Oscar conversation, with Ben Affleck‘s “Argo” racing into the frontrunner position. But that doesn’t mean the campaigning ends. After a segment on “60 Minutes” last fall, Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day-Lewis have returned to the show again, for yet another look at the film.
Once again, it taps into the making of the movie and reverence everyone has had for the subject. For those looking for another in depth profile of the movie, it’s certainly a treat, though one wonders if “60 Minutes” might have been bothered to tap another of the other eight nominated Best Picture films for a profile. Anyway, in case you missed it last night, here’s the segment in full below along with some extra material CBS put up on their website. [Awards Daily]
