New posters and a U.K. teaser trailer have been released for the biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.  The film stars Idris Elba as Nelson Mandela and co-stars Naomie Harris in as his wife Winnie the tale of “Mandela’s extraordinary life, from his childhood in a rural village through to his inauguration as the first democratically elected President of South Africa.”  I have absolutely no idea what this could possibly add to what we already know about Mandela despite the promises of the posters.  He’s a living saint, and all this trailer tells me is that Elba does a killer impression of the man.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer along with a couple of new posters.  Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom opens in the U.K. on January 3, 2014.

Here’s the official synopsis for Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom

This epic motion picture spans Mandela’s extraordinary life, from his childhood in a rural village through to his inauguration as the first democratically elected President of South Africa.  MANDELA is the thrilling story of an ordinary man who rose to the challenge of his times and triumphed – an intimate portrait of the making of a modern icon.

    The movie should end with a scene depicting necklacing.

    Um excuse me Mr.Goldberg but did you say what could it possibly add? I hope you say the same for the next marilyn monroe or princess diane movie. If those two can have a new book or movie every other year then so can Mandela.

    I hope the movie shows the full history of Mandela and not a sanitized version. For all the good he did and for what he fought against, people forgot some of the things he did. He did lead a bombing campaign but that always seems to get forgotten. I just hope the film shows both sides of the story.
