*The first teaser trailer has been released for “Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom,” staring Idris Elba as the South African icon and Naomie Harris as his former wife, Winnie.
The Weinstein Co. screened footage of the film in Cannes where Harvey Weinstein promised it is not an ordinary biopic, reports Deadline.com. It tells the story of Nelson Mandela’s life, from his childhood in a rural village through to his inauguration as the first democratically elected President of South Africa.
Mandela was recently admitted to a Pretoria hospital and remains there in critical, but stable condition, the government said this week.
The Justin Chadwick-directed film goes out in limited release in the U.S. on Nov. 29. Below is the first teaser for the film. (It’s a UK version, so it’s tagged with a Jan. 3 date).
