Apropos of tonight's presidential debate, DreamWorks has released a new special look at their upcoming biopic Lincoln, starring Daniel Day-Lewis.
The historical drama focuses on the last four months of Abraham Lincoln's life and the political strategizing he undertook at the close of the Civil War to ensure that slavery would be forever outlawed. Lincoln also stars David Strathairn as Lincoln's loyal Secretary of State, William Seward; Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Gulliver McGrath as Lincolns sons, Robert and Tad; Sally Field as his wife Mary Todd Lincoln; and Tommy Lee Jones as Thaddeus Stevens, a radical member of Lincoln's own party.
The movie hits theaters in limited release on November 9 and opens nationwide on November 16. Check out the clip above!
