While we barely get to even see Daniel Day-Lewis‘ face as our 16th President, we’ve got the very first footage of Steven Spielberg‘s highly-anticipated Lincoln today. Last week DreamWorks Pictures and Google Play announced they were teaming to deliver the first theatrical trailer for the period drama this Thursday at 7PM EST during a Google+ Hangout.
Now they’ve let loose a short glimpse of the film, featuring Abraham Lincoln‘s famous Gettysburg address overlaid on some teaser-filled footage. Check it out below and return later this week for the full-length thing — which will hopefully be vampire-less.
The main cast is made up of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tommy Lee Jones, David Strathairn and John Hawkes in the film that will be focusing on Lincoln’s pivotal role at the end of the Civil War. With a script by Tony Kushner, Lincoln also includes James Spader, Lee Pace, Jackie Earle Haley, Sally Field, Michael Stuhlbarg, Hal Holbrook, Walton Goggins, Bruce McGill, Tim Blake Nelson, David Oyelowo, Joseph Cross and David Costabile.
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.
Lincoln hits theaters on November 9th, 2012.
