'Lincoln' Trailer is Here: Watch Daniel Day-Lewis Get Presidential [VIDEO]

Can't wait for the movie 'Lincoln', directed by Steven Spielberg, starring Daniel Day-Lewis and coming November 9? Neither can we. But our long national struggle just got a little easier with the release of the movie's first full-length trailer Thursday.

[More from Mashable: ‘Lincoln’ Trailer Will Debut in Google+ Hangout With Steven Spielberg]

The trailer was the first to debut in an unusual new setting: a Google+ Hangout.

The first thing you'll notice is that Spielberg and Day-Lewis have opted for a full measure of historical accuracy on Lincoln's voice. Despite any lingering impression you might have of the man in the stovepipe hat and beard booming out the Gettysburg address, contemporary accounts agree that the 16th President actually had a high and reedy speaking tone.

Day-Lewis, renowned as a method actor who picks his roles carefully and then inhabits them, has evidently taken note.

We could do without the overly stirring music, frequent fades-to-black, and other cliches of the movie trailer. But everything else about the clip screams early Oscar favorite.

What's your take on the trailer? Let us know in the comments.
