In a marketing tie-in so perfect you may think the movie itself was specifically created to coincide with such an event, we’ve got a new trailer for Lincoln following tonight’s presidential debate. While Mitt Romney and President Obama battled on the stage in two minute increments, its time for Daniel Day-Lewis‘ turn.
Here we have a look at Steven Spielberg‘s biopic that adds quite a bit more pasion than our initial theatrical trailer. Kicking off with a bit of history, we then segue into more promising footage in this story of our 16th President. Check it out below for the film starring Sally Field, David Strathairn, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, James Spader, Hal Holbrook and Tommy Lee Jones.
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 opens everywhere on November 16th.
