If you watched the debate tonight and longed for a more electric presidential authority to beam through your television, DreamWorks was happy to oblige.  The studio released a new extended TV spot for Lincoln, Steven Spielberg‘s upcoming Abraham Lincoln biopic, to air directly after the presidential debate.  The spot opens like a campaign ad, interrupting black-and-white photos of political rallies and military triumph with inspirational sloganry.  (“For every dream, for every belief, for every freedom, there are those who unite us all.”)  But you will probably figure out this is pitching a movie by the time a Civil War still photo morphs into Civil War video footage.  There is a good deal of new footage not seen in the first trailer, and plenty more Daniel Day-Lewis nobly shouting if you want to better judge his Lincoln impression after the jump.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt, David Oyelowo, Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones, James Spader, John Hawkes, Michael Stuhlbarg, David Strathairn, Walton Goggins, Tim Blake Nelson, Bruce McGill, Jackie Earle Haley, Lee Pace and Jared Harris also star.  Lincoln opens on November 16.

Official synopsis:

Steven Spielberg directs two-time Academy Award® 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.
