DreamWorks Pictures will be premiering the trailer for Lincoln, the upcoming dramatic film based on the 16th US President's final months in office, during a Google+ Hangout. The September 13, 2012 event will include a live conversation with actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt ('Robert Todd Lincoln') and director Steven Spielberg. (The trailer launch will be the first time a film's trailer has debuted during a Google+ Hangout.)

In order to be considered for participation in the Google+ Hangout with Spielberg and Gordon-Levitt, fans must upload a short video to YouTube (with the #LincolnHangout tag) offering up an explanation as to why they want to be involved in the event. The video must also include what question they'd like to ask the Lincoln director and actor. For more details, visit www.lincolnmoviehangout.com.

DreamWorks is releasing Lincoln on November 9, 2012.

The official synopsis: "Steven Spielberg directs two-time Academy AwardŽ winner Daniel Day-Lewis in Lincoln, a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President's tumultuous final months in office. In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come."
