The full trailer won’t go up until Thursday, but if you’re hankering for a glimpse at Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, you can watch this 20-second teaser. It’s not much more than a few Civil War shots, a snippet of John Williams-y music, and what sounds and looks like actor David Oyelowo speaking a portion of President Lincoln’s famed Gettysberg Address back to 16th President of the United States (i.e. Daniel Day-Lewis).
We’ll have to wait, at least until the full trailer’s debut on Sept. 13, or the film’s Nov. 9 debut, to find out what brought an African-American Union soldier to speak so forthrightly to his commander-in-chief. For now, you can check out the teaser below:
