On November 9th, we’ll finally get to see the Abraham Lincoln film that Steven Spielberg has been wanting to make for years. Today we got our first peek at the film.. a very short peek mind you, but a peek none the less. We’ll get to see the full trailer on the 13th when they release it along with a live Google hang out thing with Spielberg and Joseph Gordon Levitt.
Along with Daniel Day Lewis, the film also stars Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones, James Spader, John Hawkes, Michael Stuhlbarg, David Strathairn, Walton Goggins, Tim Blake Nelson, Bruce McGill, Jackie Earle Haley, Lee Pace, and Jared Harris.
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.
