'Lincoln' Teaser: Here's Your First Look at Footage from Steven Spielberg's Next Movie

'Lincoln' Teaser: Here's Your First Look at Footage from Steven Spielberg's Next Movie

Sep 10, 2012

It's already been announced that the first trailer for Steven Spielberg's Lincoln will debut on this Thursday, September 13, followed by a live Google+ hangout featuring Spielberg and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, but you can get a first look at a few seconds worth of footage in this teaser promoting the trailer premiere and Google+ event.

There's not much to go on here, save for a little piece of the score, some shots of fighting and a tantalizing tease of Daniel Day-Lewis as the 16th president -- all of it running while a voiceover reads the famous Gettysburg Address. Whose voice is that, we don't yet know, though it definitely does not sound like Day-Lewis. Possibly a soldier or Gordon-Levitt, who plays Lincoln's son in the film.

Check it out below, then circle back here on Thursday for the full trailer. Spielberg's Lincoln, which hits theaters on November 9, will follow the president during the last four months of his life as he sets out on a quest to unite the country and abolish slavery. In addition to Day-Lewis and Gordon-Levitt, it costars David Strathairn, Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones, Michael Stuhlbarg, Jackie Earle Haley, Walter Goggins and more.
