'Lincoln' Debuts Stirring New Trailer and Louis C.K. Portrays Abe in Viral 'SNL' Skit

Lincoln is set to hit theaters this weekend, in limited release, before expanding nationwide next Friday as it continues its march through awards season.

Most of the domestic trailers have centered on a few clips of dialogue from lead actor Daniel Day-Lewis along with some of the supporting cast. A stirring new international trailer gives us our best look yet at the Steven Spielberg directed film.

The film is scheduled to close out the AFI Film Festival this Thursday.

Meanwhile, this past weekend saw comedian Louis C.K. host Saturday Night Live for the first time in his career. One of the skits, written by cast member Seth Myers, saw him taking on a very Louis C.K. approach to Abraham Lincoln. Check out the clip below.
