Trailer Debut: Lincoln (now with catchphrase!)

A second trailer for Steven Spielberg’s inevitable Oscar-sweeper Lincoln debuted during last week’s Presidential debate, contrasting the muted rhetoric of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney with America’s most beloved leader showing off swagger of Jay-Z proportions.

Here, we see plenty of footage that implies this biopic won’t be as soggy as Spielberg’s other similarly-themed epics (Amistad, War Horse), and might even have some fire in its belly.

That point is made by star Daniel Day-Lewis, proudly declaring at the end of the clip after an impassioned speech about abolishing slavery, “I am the President of the United States of America, clothed in immense power!”

Look out, “I drink your milkshake.” DDL might have a new catchphrase.
