One of the most anticipated films of 2012 is Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, starring the incredibly talented Daniel Day Lewis in the title role of Abraham Lincoln. There is not a great deal known about the film, even the synopsis is vague and only one photo has been released to date--showing Daniel Day Lewis as Abraham Lincoln, and what a striking resemblance he has to the late President. Award buzz is already happening and the film has not even been seen yet, nor has the full-length trailer. That is about to change.
Google Play and Dreamworks Pictures will debut the theatrical trailer for Lincoln on September 13, 2012, at 4:00pm (PST) during a Google+ Hangout. The best part, it includes a live conversation with Steven Spielberg and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who portrays Lincoln's son Robert Todd Lincoln in the film. This trailer launch is a first for a Google Hangout. A Google Hangout allows people to connect with one another in "face-to-face-to-face via group video chat." The Lincoln Google Hangout will be broadcast live on the ABC SuperSign in New York City's Times Square, as well.

Steven Spielberg directs two-time Academy Award® winner Daniel Day-Lewis in Lincoln, 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.
