After teasing Lincoln lovers with a trailer teaser earlier this week, DreamWorks made good on its promise to release the first full trailer for Steven Spielberg's significantly less vampiric Lincoln biopic.

Based on the biography Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin and starring Daniel Day-Lewis as America's 16th President, Lincoln focuses on Honest Abe's 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.

Also starring Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones, David Strathairn, Lee Pace, Jackie Earle Haley, James Spader, Hal Holbrook, and Gulliver McGrath, Lincoln is set to open nationwide on November 16th.
