Right in time for the first first presidential debate, a new trailer for Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln was released last night.
The highly anticipated film focuses on the nation’s 16th president, played by Daniel Day-Lewis, as he fights for the abolition of slavery. The film also stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tommy Lee Jones. Lincoln is due out in theaters Nov. 16.
Featuring a score of intense strings and Lincoln’s own rhetoric, this latest trailer leads off by displaying stills of several pivotal scenes from U.S. history to introduce Abraham Lincoln’s struggle to “cure” the country of slavery.
Take a look at the trailer below.
