Many of you weren't too impressed with the first trailer, based on the comments you left; well, how about this one, which aired during tonight's presidential debate?

It's another Steven Spielberg historical epic drama - this time centered on Abraham Lincoln; specifically, the 16th President's tumultuous final months in office, with the nation divided by war and change on the horizon, as he pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery.

Daniel Day Lewis stars as the title character, and he's joined by Sally FieldTommy Lee Jones, and several other revered acting talents, like David Oyelowo and Gloria Reuben.

The film opens November 9th

Given the subject matter, expect to see lots of black actors in peripheral roles.

Watch the new, earnest trailer below:

    Now THIS looks very tantalizing! I can't wait for this to hit... another good looking slave movie. That reminds me. I'll need y'alls help so sing along in the key of "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town". Alright, here we go--> "You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, I'm telling you why, slave movies are coming to town. I'm making my list, I'm checking it twice, gonna find out if "Lincoln" is nice... Slave movies are coming to town. Twelve Years A Slave is coming, A black man's baking this cake. He knows what he is doing, SO IT'S GOOD FOR GOODNESS SAKE. You better watch out, you better not cry, "Django" is out, I'm telling you why... Slave movies are coming to town. I'm making my list, I'm checking it twice, "Kerry's" on there, she's naughty - NOT NICE... Slave movies are coming to town. You better watch out, "Spielberg" don’t play, you better not pout when “Lewis'” on display… Slave movies are coming to town. I'm making my list, ain't checking twice, already know "Lee Daniel's" big vice… SLAVE MOVIES ARE COMING TO TOWN! The End.
