It’s a battle of the Daniels at the box office this weekend.

British hunk Daniel Craig and two-time Academy Award winner Daniel Day-Lewis each star in two of the year’s biggest films, taking on the role of history’s — whether fictional or not — most beloved icons.

So who are these contenders?

In one corner, Craig reprises the role of famous English spy James Bond in the film series’ 23rd installment, Skyfall. Also starring Judi Dench as the famous M, the film revolves around Bond tracking down a threat to the M16 — and destroying it at all costs.

The movie also sees the debut of Ben Whishaw as Q, M16’s quartermaster, and Bond girls Bérénice Marlohe and Naomie Harris.

Meanwhile, Day-Lewis takes on the role of America’s 16th president in Lincoln. Directed by Steven Spielberg, the movie follows the final four months of Abraham Lincoln’s life before he was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth.

Though Lincoln opens this Friday to select theaters, the movie is already a critical darling and looks to be a major contender at this year’s Oscars, debuting  with an overall 92 percent freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Which movie will you go see this weekend? Sound off below.
