Idris Elba really should think about acting professionally- he’s really very good.
The latest trailer has arrived for Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom and it gives us our first real look at the scale and scope of a film that has been drawing acclaim at the Toronto Film Festival.
Both Idris Elba and Naomie Harris’ performances have received praise in a film that attempts to condense 50 remarkable years in the life of one of the 20th Century’s most important figures into 152 minutes. It’s an enormous challenge.
However, Pirates of The Caribbean 3 was 168 minutes long and Captain Jack Sparrow did not lead a divided country away from civil war towards reconciliation. We think that’s the plot of Pirates 5.
There’s already Oscar buzz about Long Walk To Freedom, but with some stunning films expected to be competing this year, it will be a crowded field.
Check out the trailer below to see how the film might fare.
Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom is released 3rd January 2014.
