LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Lincoln" is marching to more movie theaters.

Disney, which distributed the DreamWorks film, is making additional prints of director Steven Spielberg's historical saga starring Daniel Day-Lewis to meet an unexpected demand that left some moviegoers in Alaska out in the cold.

Dave Hollis, Disney's head of distribution, says the additional prints should be available by mid-December.

The film opened in wide release Nov. 9, but it has been unavailable at some smaller venues, such as the Gross Alaska theaters in Juneau and Ketchikan.

The extra prints are coming a little too late to get into the December lineup at the Alaska theaters. But a theater official says early January showings of "Lincoln" should be popular ahead of Academy Awards season.
