'Lincoln' is a tease ... for now

We've all seen Daniel Day-Lewis' incredible transformation into President Abraham Lincoln, and now a new clip is teasing us with just a bit more.

And by "a bit," we mean a slight 44 seconds.

The Steven Spielberg-directed epic chronicles the end of the Civil War and Lincoln's struggle with his cabinet to bring an end to slavery. The trailer gives just the faintest hint of that plot, but it's really intended to whet your appetites for the full reveal later this week.

On Thursday, Google+ will host a hangout with Spielberg and Joseph Gordon-Levitt at 7 p.m. ET to watch the trailer in full.

The movie, which also stars Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones and David Oyelowo, opens in limited release November 9 before going wide November 16.

    It is improbable.

    Tommy Lee Jones loves baby vampires-he hangs around them all the time.

    I'm going to guess that Tommy Lee Jones will decide to "establish a 5 mile perimeter" outside Ford Theatre after Lincoln is shot. Too predictable.

    Tommy Lee Jones should be a lot of help against those pesky vampires

    Sally Field? I had forgotten about her since "Brothers & Sisters".
