First Teaser for Spielberg’s “Lincoln”; (UPDATED) Full Trailer Live, See It Here!

The first footage of Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln is here. Yet another sort of teaser for a full-length trailer, this clip is only a portion of the full trailer that will be released later in the week, following a Q&A on Google+ with director Steven Spielberg and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who is cast to play Robert Todd Lincoln, son of Abraham Lincoln). We can only see brief glimpses of Day-Lewis as Lincoln in the teaser and none of them are straight on views. It’s also difficult to tell if Day-Lewis is providing the voice-over or if it’s the other character featured toward the end. The voice-over quotes the Gettysburg Address but the other actor’s lips appear to be moving. A longer preview of some of the battle scenes promises to be just as exciting. Hopefully they will be just as memorable as the scenes in Saving Private Ryan.

UPDATE:

This is the full trailer!
