Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln' Debuts First Touching Sneak Peek


Glimpses at Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln, David Oyelowo in a Union attire and a Civil War scene are among those featured in the short footage.

A few days before its full trailer gets released via Google Play, Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" unveils its very first sneak peek. The short footage offers a first glimpse at Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln in motion. His face, however, is not clearly visible as most of his scenes are shot from behind his back. There is also a quick look at David Oyelowo in a Union uniform. A glimpse at Civil War scene is also featured in the video.

"Lincoln" is 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.

The full trailer of the movie will be released on September 13 during a Google+ Hangout with Spielberg and actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who plays Robert Todd Lincoln. The live conversation, which will take place at 4 P.M. PT, will also be broadcast live on the ABC SuperSign from the heart of New York City's Times Square.

The drama is scheduled for limited release in the U.S. on November 9 before opening nationwide on November 16. Also lining up in the cast ensemble are Tommy Lee Jones, Jared Harris, Jackie Earle Haley, Sally Field, David Strathairn and Lee Pace among others.
