Lincoln: watch the full-length trailer for Steven Spielberg's biopic starring Daniel Day-Lewis

Daniel Day-Lewis? Playing Abraham Lincoln...? In a Steven Spielberg movie?! I smell Oscar!

Yes, it’s the first full trailer for the upcoming biopic of the 16th President of the United States, charting his struggle to abolish slavery and unite America as the Civil War approaches its end.

As far as it's possible to tell from two minutes of footage, Daniel Day-Lewis looks to be a likeable, quietly inspirational Lincoln, and delivers some of those key lines in a measured and believable manner.

Along with Day-Lewis and Spielberg, Lincoln boasts two other Oscar winners in Sally Field, as the President's second wife Mary, and Tommy Lee Jones as Republican leader Thaddeus Stevens.

The only thing missing is the vampires - presumably they'll make an appearance in the next trailer...
