In preparation for Steven Spielberg’s release of his latest film “Lincoln,” the director and actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt are participating in a Google+ hangout today starting at 7 p.m. Eastern/4 p.m. Pacific.
[UPDATE] Watch the live stream below!
The film focuses on the last few months of Lincoln’s life as he grapples with the culmination of the Civil War and unification of the country. A 44-second teaser promoting the movie and hangout has already been released featuring a quote by Lincoln (portrayed by Daniel Day-Lewis) from the closing of his famous “Gettysburg Address”: “That we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
You don’t see much of Day-Lewis’ Lincoln character in the teaser apart from him observing an army camp at night. The trailer, which will also be released today, will help add more light to the film.
Users who want to ask questions to Spielberg or Gordon-Levitt should make their own video and tell Google. Otherwise, you can sit back and listen to the live discussion right here and get ready for “Lincoln” to premiere in theaters Nov. 9.
