Lincoln FilmA teaser trailer for the upcoming film, Lincoln, appeared today online, two days before the official trailer will be debuted during a Google+ hangout:

Lincoln is a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President’s tumultuous final months in office.

In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery.

With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come.

The film’s director, Steven Spielberg, along with actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who plays Robert Todd Lincoln in the movie, will premiere the full-length trailer on Thursday, making this the first movie to have its trailer debut via social media.
