Spielberg's 'Lincoln' Trailer Gets Epic Premiere


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
