Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom – Full Trailer

The big blockbuster season is over and while the superhero’s take a holiday and the robots and aliens have buried the beef, its time for the serious Oscar contenders to shine.

Today we have the first full trailer for Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom starring one of our favourite actors and London boy Idris Elba as Nelson Mandela.

The film shows A chronicle of Nelson Mandela’s life journey from his childhood in a rural village through to his inauguration as the first democratically elected president of South Africa.

Check out the trailer below. We think it could be Elba’s ticket to picking up a gold statue (that’s an Oscar by the way)

And sorry to ruin the end but he gets out of jail!

The film also stars Naomi Harris and is released in Cinemas in January
