Day Lewis and Spielberg to head Lincoln premiere

NOT long to go before the red carpet is rolled out at the Savoy Cinema for the A-list premiere of new movie Lincoln.

Cinema fans lucky enough to get a seat will have the chance to rub shoulders with the lead actor in attendance, Daniel Day Lewis.

The Wicklow-based actor could make history next month if he scoops another Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of the US President, making it his third.

He'll be joined at the bash this Sunday by his pal and renowned director Steven Spielberg.

The movie mogul is flying into Dublin especially for the event, which will see profits going towards the Wicklow Hospice Foundation.
