'Lincoln' trailer premiere -- Google + hangout

The theatrical trailer for Steven Spielberg's highly anticipated Lincoln will debut  at 7 p.m. Eastern Time on Sept. 13  during a Google + Hangout with the director and actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who plays Robert Todd Lincoln.

Dreamworks Pictures and Google Play announced today that the trailer for the film, which stars Daniel Day-Lewis as the 16th President of the United States, will be the first to launch during a Google + Hangout, which will be broadcast live on the ABC SuperSign in New York City's Times Square.

The event, which allows people to connect face-to-face-to-face via group video chat, will also feature a live conversation with Spielberg and Gordon-Levitt.  The film is slated for a Nov. 16 release.

Fans interested in participating are asked to upload a short video to their own YouTube channel with the #LincolnHangout tag explaining who they are, why they are interested in Lincoln and what they would like to ask Spielberg and Gordon-Levitt about the film.  (The link above explains more about submissions.)
