UPDATE: The teaser trailer is now below.

Remember when trailers merely appeared on TV screens and in front of movies at the theater? Those days are long gone. Now trailers get premieres of their own. It should thus come as no surprise that the trailer for Steven Spielberg's hotly-anticipated "Lincoln" will debut at an epic scale, being live-broadcast in Times Square through Google+ Hangout on September 13 at 4pm PT. Spielberg and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who plays Robert Todd Lincoln across from Daniel Day Lewis' Abraham Lincoln) will also have a live conversation as part of the event. Want to participate and ask them questions? Submit a short video on your YouTube channel with the #LincolnHangout tag and explain who you are, why you are interested in the film and what your question is. More details here.

Google+ Hangout allows people to connect face-to-face via a group video chat. This is the first time a trailer will be released using the technology.

"Lincoln" arrives November 16.

    I never would have thought of Daniel Day Lewis as Lincoln. But, my god, he's perfect!

    I want to see this on a double bill with DJANGO UNCHAINED.

    Wrong movie... This is not Lincoln! Oops

    A black man delivering Jefferson's hypocritical words. Disgraceful. If Spielberg wants to be bold let him show Lincoln declaring that he didn't believe in equality of the races. That he "would see the superior position assigned to the white man."
    I'll bet you ANY amount of money that won't show up in his little whitewash.

    So wait, Jaysmack: are you an angry white man or an angry black man? I seriously can't tell.

    -----Lincoln? ----AGAIN?

    STILL, we wonder if Spileberg will get into that
    KEY issue of Lincoln defying the Globalist USURERs
    of his day?

    --------Probably NOT.

    Yeah! Wait, what the...?

    Daniel Day Lewis as Abraham Lincoln. This one I will definitely watch.

    It's not Spielberg fault he dropped out, it was taking to long and neeson thought he was to old. And do u seriously think neeson would play a better Lincoln? Ddl is the best possible choice

    I truly was looking forward to seeing Liam Neeson doing this. Too bad he dropped out cuz Spielberg dragged his heels. Now I have to sustain my displeasure while I watch this film because it is THE FILM that I want to see. I hope I'll just let lewis carry me through it without imagining how Neeson would have done it.
