‘Lincoln’ Teaser Trailer: First Footage Focuses on Back of Honest Abe’s Head, Something About Google

Daniel Day-Lewis as Lincoln

President Abraham Lincoln. Google. It’s a natural fit. The first official bit of footage from Steven Spielberg‘s highly anticipated Lincoln has finally arrived, and it’s done its damnedest to make Lincoln and Google seem simpatico in ways no one has ever dreamed. At least there’s voiceover by David Oyelowo to give this glorified commercial some actual gravitas.

We won’t get a full trailer for the film until this Thursday at 7PM EST, but this remarkably slim teaser trailer is much more concerned in letting us know that said trailer premiere will be followed by a “Live Google Hangout” with Spielberg and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. That’s just a string of stuff I don’t understand, but perhaps you young’uns out there will get what it means and can participate. Check out some fresh looks at the back of Daniel Day-Lewis‘ head after the break. Presidential!

Lincoln will open on November 16th. [Cinema Blend]
