‘Lincoln’ Sneak Peek: Steven Spielberg’s Vision Of Presidential Greatness
Wednesday, September 12th, 2012 at 3:00 pm
This coming September 13th we will be getting our very first look at the theatrical trailer for Steven Spielberg‘s Lincoln. The film starring Daniel Day-Lewis as the titular character will focus on the last four months of Lincoln’s life as he tries to put an end to the Civil War and slavery. Google Play (which is now another outlet that will be vying for exclusive rights to releasing trailers) will be celebrating the release of this trailer with a Google+ Hangout with Spielberg and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
So before we can get into all of this excitement, DreamWorks and Disney has released a sneak peek of the trailer, which you can check out below.
We’ve seen Daniel Day-Lewis as President Lincoln through portraits and posters, but never seen his performance. This teaser, which contains snippets of The Gettysburg Address, doesn’t give us anything but some audio goodies. If anything, this teaser shows us that Daniel Day-Lewis will not sound like Daniel Day-Lewis.
Lincoln also stars Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones, Jackie Earle Haley, Lee Pace, John Hawkes, Walton Goggins, Hal Holbrook, Tim Blake Nelson and David Oyelowo. The film opens in theaters for a limited run on November 9th, then it expands for a wide release on November 16th. Come back here this Thursday for the first look at Lincoln.
