First Teaser Trailer for ‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’ Starring Idris Elba


There isn’t much in this first look at Justin Chadwick’s Mandela biopic, but what there is is pretty inspiring. The first teaser trailer for Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom has dropped, and while we don’t get a close up look at Idris Elba playing the titular role, my interest for the film is piqued. The Weinstein Company is distributing the film, and there seems to be a lot of love in the industry for Elba, so I think most of us have this one on our Oscar radars. The film opens in the heart of awards season, on November 29.
