A new trailer for the upcoming biopic about former president Lincoln has been released by Paramount Pictures, but it has yet to be released to the public.
The trailer, titled ‘The Lincoln Experience,’ stars Samuel L. Jackson as President Abraham Lincoln and Kate Hudson as his first wife, Abigail.
It opens on March 17.
“The Lincoln experience” is the second of three biopic films set for release this year, according to the WhiteHouse.gov website.
They will be followed by the upcoming film “The First Family.”
President-elect Donald Trump will make his first official visit to Capitol Hill on Jan. 20, where he will be joined by members of the National Parks Service and U.S. Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.).
In the trailer, Jackson plays Lincoln in the Oval Office, which has been converted into a conference room and offices.
The president-elect is accompanied by his wife, Elizabeth (Hudson), and their son, Lincoln Jr., who is also in the room.
He is accompanied in the trailer by his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who is shown wearing a black robe, and his wife Ivanka Trump.
“We’re thrilled that Samuel Jackson is on board to star in this exciting new project,” said Adam McKay, President and CEO of Paramount Pictures.
“This is a must-see movie for Lincoln fans around the world.”
He added that the movie’s title, “The Lincoln Experience,” is a nod to President Lincoln’s life, which is often depicted in the movies and books.
“He was a man who, in his own words, loved the land of Lincoln and the people of the United States, and who dedicated his life to preserving the country’s greatness,” McKay said.
“There’s something about the words ‘The land of’ and ‘lincoln’ that speaks to Lincoln’s enduring character,” he added.
The film, which opens March 17, was produced by Simon Brody and Scott Rudin and is financed by the Lincoln Trust Fund.
The film’s producers, Paramount Pictures and Lincoln Films, were joined by the U.N. General Assembly and the Lincoln Memorial Museum.
It will be released by Universal Pictures in the U:H 2018 World Cinema Awards on Sunday, Jan. 21.
