The first trailer for Justin Chadwick’s biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom gave a nice introduction to the look and tone of the film, but this new version shows off the transformation of star Idris Elba (Luther) into Nelson Mandela throughout various stages of his life.  While his accent is a bit distracting (regardless of how accurate it is), Elba’s powerful presence definitely comes across and that’s more than enough to carry the picture.

Also starring Naomie Harris, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom opens in limited release on November 29th.  Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.
