First Full Trailer For Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom Starring Idris Elba And Naomie Harris



The Weinstein Company has released the first full trailer for director Justin Chadwick’s biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.  The film stars Idris Elba as the title character and centers around Mandela’s journey from his childhood in a rural village through his inauguration as the first democratically elected president of South Africa.

I’m a big fan of Idris Elba’s work and hopefully between this role and recently released Pacific Rim the man will get his due.  The pic covers a considerable part of Mandela’s life and we will get to see Elba show off his range.  Hopefully, the make-up department can deliver and we don’t get stuck with happened to Leo in J. Edgar.

The supporting cast includes Naomie Harris, Tony Kgoroge, Riaad Moosa, Zolani Mkiva and Jamie Bartlett.



MANDELA: LONG WALK TO FREEDOM is based on South African President Nelson Mandela’s autobiography of the same name, which chronicles his early life, coming of age, education and 27 years in prison before becoming President and working to rebuild the country’s once segregated society.
