Extended Preview for Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln' From the Debate
"Are we fitted to the times we're born into?" During the first 2012 presidential debate, Disney/DreamWorks unveiled a new extended TV preview for Steven Spielberg's Lincoln. The spot runs a full 2-minutes and is titled "Unite". Daniel Day-Lewis plays our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln, in this epic story that tells of his last four months. The first full trailer debuted last month and marketing is now ramping up, including this TV spot showing up right in the thick of election season. David Strathairn and Tommy Lee Jones also appear, along with Joseph Gordon-Levitt who wasn't seen in the trailer much. This was the footage I was waiting to see, it looks epic and emotional and monumental in every sense of the name Lincoln. Enjoy!
