Previous weekend's box-office champ, Lionsgate's "The Possession" fell to No. 3 with $5.8 million. So far, the scary flick has made $41.2 million in three weeks.

But the big news at the box-office this past weekend was "The Master," the Paul Thomas Anderson's flick that may or may not be about Scientology founder, L. Ron Hubbard. Starring Phillip Seymour Hoffman as the master and Joaquin Phoenix as the servant, "The Master" made $729,745 at the box-office which transferred roughly about $145,949 per theater.

Here's the New "Lincoln" Trailer, or "I See Oscars!" 
Yes, it has Oscars written all over it, at least based on the trailer. It has great Oscar pedigree starting with Daniel Day-Lewis as Lincoln, Tommy Lee Jones as Thaddeus Stevens, and Sally Field as Mary Todd Lincoln. Not to mention Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Robert Todd Lincoln, Jared Harris as Ulysses S. Grant, James Spader as WN Bilbo, John Hawkes as Robert Latham, and David Straithairn as Secretary of State William Seward. It's based, in part, on the book by Doris Kearns Goodwin and adapted by Tony Kushner. Oh yeah, and it's directed by a little-known director named Steven Spielberg. We'll see if this has Spielberg's magic when "Lincoln" opens on November 16.

For now, let's take a look at the new trailer:



Here's the synopsis from Yahoo:

Synopsis
Steven Spielberg helms his long-in-the-making biopic of Abraham Lincoln for DreamWorks and Touchstone Pictures. Daniel Day-Lewis portrays the former head of state in the Tony Kushner-penned adaptation of Doris Kearns Goodwin's book, TEAM OF RIVALS, which chronicles the President's time in office between 1861 and 1865 as he dealt with personal demons and politics during the Civil War.
