‘Lincoln’ Gets Its First Teaser Trailer [Video]

Daniel Day-Lewis has already proven that he looks like President Abraham Lincoln, but can he master the 16th President’s mannerisms? History buffs, cinema appreciators, and Spielberg fanboys got their first look at the Oscar winner portraying Honest Abe today in a new trailer for the movie Lincoln.

Well, it’s a teaser trailer that clocks in at just over 40 seconds. Cinema Blend reports that a full trailer will be released this Thursday at 7:00 pm EST on Google Plus when Steven Spielberg and Joseph Gordon-Levitt host a video hangout session on the social networking site.

The invite may be hard to come by, however.
