The Weinstein Company has released first trailer for director Justin Chadwick’s (The Other Boleyn Girl) biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. The film stars Idris Elba and chronicles the life of Nelson Mandela from his childhood in a rural village to his election as president of South Africa. Elba is unsurprisingly fantastic, and the pic actually looks to take on a pretty large scope when tackling Mandela’s story. As far as biopics go, Long Walk to Freedom looks quite impressive.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Naomie Harris. Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom opens on November 29th.
