'Lincoln' director Steven Spielberg and actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt unveiled the first full look at the highly-anticipated biopic via Google+ Hangout session Thursday, just two days after a teaser trailer appeared online.
Partially based on Doris Kearns Goodwin's, "Team of Rivals," the film is chock full of recognizable faces. Sally Field plays Lincoln's wife, Mary Todd, Tommy Lee Jones plays Thaddeus Stevens and Gordon-Levitt plays Lincoln's son Robert Todd. "Mad Men's" Jared Harris will portray Ulysses S. Grant.
From the trailer, it looks like "Lincoln" will be classic Spielberg -- epic in scope, with high production values and sweeping battle scenes.
Here is the official synopsis:
The film opens in limited release November 9 and everywhere on November 16.
