New 'Mandela' Trailer: Idris Elba Launches a Revolution (Video)
The latest look at The Weinstein Co.'s upcoming biopic shows the anti-apartheid leader urging people to rise up against the government, and the campaign to free him from prison.
A new trailer for The Weinstein Co.'s upcoming biopic on Nelson Mandela, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, has debuted online.
The new look at the film about the anti-apartheid leader takes a more narrative approach than the first, opening with Idris Elba's Mandela greeting his wife (Naomie Harris) and childre, and saying that he wants his kids to be able to walk free in their own land.
Mandela is then shown urging people to rise up against the government in South Africa, addressing a gathering by saying, "We are the people of this nation but we don't have rights. There comes a time when there remains two choices: submit or fight!"
The crowd is then shown chanting, "fight" and marching through the streets.
The new clip features some of the first trailer's same scenes of Mandela's arrest and imprisonment, but the new look at the film also shows scenes of the campaign to free him and ends on an uplifting note as an older Mandela and his wife lead a march with the South African leader saying, "Love comes more naturally to the human heart."
The clip is soundtracked by a new U2 song, "Ordinary Love," which was written for the film.
TWC is set to roll out Mandela, directed by Justin Chadwick, in limited release in the U.S. on Nov. 29.
