From Steven Spielberg, "Lincoln" stars a bevy of A-listers -- Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, David Strathairn, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, James Spader, Hal Holbrook and Tommy Lee Jones -- and follows honest Abe's final months in office, trying to unite a divided country and abolish slavery.
"Tony Kushner wrote the script -- it's a really smart script," Gordon-Levitt told Moviefone at the Toronto Film Festival last week. "It's not just a feel-good bio pic. I mean it feels great, I think it feels better because it actually delves into something. It's not just patriotism and icon worship. It really examines him as a human being and all of his imperfections and both his virtues and his flaws."
Gordon-Levitt later added that the film "is such a brave take. Steven Spielberg, he's the biggest filmmaker in the world. There would be a lot pressure on him to make a more watered-down version of the story and I think it's so brave of him to have really done something provocative and interesting."
"Whatever you're about to see in trailer form, is just a slight texture," Spielberg said on Google Hangout, which is where the trailer first debuted.
You can watch the trailer above. "Lincoln" will hit theaters on November 9.
