The first teaser trailer for director Steven Spielberg‘s Lincoln has been released. This promotional comes just days ahead of the first full trailer and live Google+ Q&A with Spielberg and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
In our first look at Daniel Day-Lewis in motion, we only see glimpses of him as the legendary President. There are only a few shots here and there, one with a man dressed in Union attire, turning and walking away from Lincoln. But regardless of its duration, this teaser is enough to turn our already high grasped attention into a desperate obsession for its release.
Check out the teaser trailer below:
