Latest Lincoln Trailer Online
'Slavery sir? It's done.'

06 November 2012  |  Written by James White

Given that November 6 is the day that America hits the polls to vote in the presidential election, now seems as good a time as any for a new trailer for Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln. Take a look at the latest promo above.

There are several scenes we’ve already seen in at least one previous trailer, but this also includes some new moments of Lincoln (Daniel Day Lewis) and his argumentative cabinet figuring out how to get the 13th Amendment  to the US Constitution – outlawing slavery – through the system without derailing efforts to end the bloody Civil War.

But while politicians pushing through legislation sounds like the cure for insomnia, the dramatic nature of the real-life conflict, the pivotal aim of the amendment and the sheer talent on display here promise it’ll keep you engaged.

And just look at that cast, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, David Oyelowo, Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones, James Spader, John Hawkes, Michael Stuhlbarg, David Strathairn, Walton Goggins, Tim Blake Nelson, Bruce McGill, Jackie Earle Haley, Lee Pace and Jared Harris all aboard.

Lincoln will open in the US on November 16 and lands on our shores on January 25.

RE:
Hey guys, I saw this film a few hours ago. Go and see for wonderful acting, a great script, and fine filmmaking, but not if you want 100% historical truth. It's again a film that chooses to glorify a person who was far from perfect. Lincoln is shown as being 99% perfect. He makes one "bad" comment during the movie, and even that's lost if you're not fully paying attention. More
