Saving Lincoln Draws Inspiration From Civil War Photos in New Film Poster

Posted by Karen Benardello On January - 23 - 2013 0 Comment

The upcoming film biography ‘Saving Lincoln,’ which is set to hit theaters on February 15, is drawing inspiration from actual Civil War photos in its new poster. Director Salvador Litvak utilizes the new filmmaking technique, CineCollage, which incorporates pictures from the Library of Congress onto green screen backdrops in every scene.

‘Saving Lincoln’ is based on the true story of Abraham Lincoln, played by Tom Amandes, and his self-appointed bodyguard, U.S. Marshal War Hill Lamon, portrayed by Lea Coco. The Marshal is a banjo-playing Southerner who foiled repeated attempts on the American President’s life, and kept him functioning during the darkest hours of the Civil War. The film also stars ‘The Artist’s Penelope Ann Miller as Mary Todd Lincoln, Bruce Davison as William Seward, Creed Bratton as Senator Charles Sumner and Saidah Arikka Ekulona as Elizabeth Keckley.

The filmmakers of ‘Saving Lincoln’ have started a Kickstarter campaign to help bring the movie to theaters and onto home entertainment. For more information to donating to ‘Saving Lincoln’s campaign, visit the film’s official page.
