Lincoln Trailer: Steven Spielberg’s Civil War

The Lincoln trailer has finally been emancipated, and yup, this pretty much looks like you'd expect Steven Spielberg's Abraham Lincoln movie to look! Daniel Day-Lewis as Abe is backlit in those Janusz Kaminski floodlights as he furrows his brow, debates the fate of a nation, and meets with a passel of the best characters actors alive. David Strathairn! John Hawkes! Jared Harris! Jackie Earle Haley! And so on. Still, there are two small surprises in here that you may be unprepared for, so read on if you need to steel yourself: Adam Driver from Girls is afforded a pivotal line! And also, Tommy Lee Jones's hair. Obviously, much more to come on this one.
