During the tonight’s first presidential debate extended preview for Steven Spielberg
was added by Dreamworks-Disney.
The studios were no doubt looking to capitalize on the turnout by throwing out a new promotional clip to the masses.
This full 2-minutes spot titled ‘Unite’ highlights that no president has had it easy, and when it came to abolishing slavery, Lincoln faced a rising battle all the way.
It opens like a campaign ad, and includes black-and-white photos of political rallies and military triumph with inspirational phrase: ‘For every dream, for every belief, for every freedom, there are those who unite us all.’
Of course, Daniel Day-Lewis
plays our 16th president, David Strathairn
and Tommy Lee Jones
also appear, along with Joseph Gordon-Levitt
who wasn’t seen in the previous trailer much.
The cast also includes Sally Field, Jackie Earle Haley, Lee Pace, John Hawkes, Walton Goggins, Hal Holbrook, Tim Blake Nelson
and David Oyelowo
and has a screenplay by Oscar nominee Tony Kushner
based on many books about Lincoln’s life.
The Lincoln will debut in limited theaters starting on November 9th, 2012, expanding wide on the 16th.
