Spielberg unveils first official full-length Lincoln trailer

Last week, we were treated to a quick teaser trailer for director Steven Spielberg's highly anticipated presidential biopic but a second version wasn't far behind. The theatrical preview dropped online today as Spielberg and co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt unveiled the first official full-length trailer during a Google Chat.

Starring multiple-Oscar winning actor Daniel Day Lewis as Honest Abe, the film is based on historian Doris Kearns Goodwin's book about the U.S. President and his Cabinet, "Team of Rivals," which deals with Lincoln's time in office and the obstacles he faced. Spielberg went on to describe the 16th President in the Google Chat as "a monumental president and we treat him as a man, not a monument."

Lincoln, co-starring Sally Fields, Tommy Lee Jones, Lee Pace, David Oyelowo, John Hawkes, James Spader, Walter Goggins, Jackie Earle Haley, David Strathairn and Jared Harris, hits theatres on November 9.
