A dramatic, thrilling and much improved trailer for Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln debuted last night during the Presidential debate. The trailer has now gone on-line and we are most happy to share it with you today. I will firstly admit to feeling a little disappointed with the very first trailer which landed a few weeks back, and thankfully this new, action packed and intense trailer has rectified those early errors. Here we see Daniel Day Lewis is full swing as Abraham Lincoln, and it looks like he has given a towering performance, as always. The two minute trailer is epic, and filled with a lot more action than the first trailer, and builds to a very thrilling climax, check it out at the bottom of this post.
