Last week DreamWorks Pictures and Google Play announced that they will release the theatrical trailer for the highly-anticipated film Lincoln
during a Google+ hangout
with Steven Spielberg
and Joseph Gordon-Levitt on September 13th, 2012 at 7PM EST.
Meanwhile, the film unveils its very first sneak peek offering a first glimpse at Daniel Day-Lewis
as Abraham Lincoln in motion.
Well, you won’t see much of him, but you will hear him… or it is the soldier rather than Day-Lewis speaking. However, teaser gives us our first look at this dark film.
Lincoln also stars Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones, David Strathairn, Lee Pace, Jackie Earle Haley, James Spader, Hal Holbrook, John Hawkes, Michael Stuhlbarg, David Strathairn, Walton Goggins, Tim Blake Nelson, Bruce McGill, Jared Harris
and Gulliver McGrath
, and is scheduled to open in limited release this November 9th, after which it will expand in theaters everywhere on November 16th, 2012.
Steven Spielberg directs two-time Academy Award® winner Daniel Day-Lewis in “Lincoln,” a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President’s tumultuous final months in office. In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come.
Starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, David Strathairn, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, James Spader, Hal Holbrook and Tommy Lee Jones, “Lincoln” is produced by Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy, with a screenplay by Tony Kushner, based in part on the book “Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln” by Doris Kearns Goodwin.
