Long Walk To Freedom (Nelson Mandela Biographical Movie starring Idris Elba) - Trailer

"Shall we begin?" Idris Elba as Nelson Mandela asks in the first trailer for "Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom." As it turns out, marketing for the Weinstein Company release already began last week, when an international teaser for the Oscar hopeful debuted online.

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.
.
That clip showed precious little in the way of Elba, though it did feature his uncanny vocal impersonation of the South African leader; the "Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom" trailer that debuted on Thursday provides interested parties a whole lot more in the way of Elba and the film's story. 
.
Based on an original screenplay by William Nicholson and directed by Justin Chadwick, "Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom" focuses on Mandela's younger days. "Public Enemy No. 1," "Hunted By Police," "Feared By The Government" read title cards in the beginning of the clip, before words like "Liberator" and "Revolutionary" flash across the screen. ("The Social Network" trailer still has an influence on modern movie marketing, it seems.) 
.
For his part, Elba looks strong. He's been mentioned as a possible Best Actor contender, and this trailer does nothing to deter that excitement. Watch the first "Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom" trailer above.

The film is out in USA on Nov. 29 2013.

I am so excited i got nothing to say. Cat catch my tongue :) - yall know we love us some Idris (yessirrrrr), and how better to honour a great man Mandela now when he is alive at 95 before God calls him home - Bring that Oscar to your homeland - London/Sierre Leone/Ghana, let us start priding ourselves now.  Win that Oscar for you, for us all but in honour of Mandela too.
