The ‘Lincoln’ movie will premiere Nov. 16 in Richmond, although fans had hoped the city might be chosen for early release of the Steven Spielberg flick–seeing as many a bearded Richmond extra graced the set. 

The movie will have a limited release in theaters starting Nov. 9th, 2012 and then nationwide the following week, Nov. 16. Spielberg postponed the release date out of concern for the presidential election. 

In the meantime, enjoy the trailer and shots of the city. Are you in the trailer?
