British actor Idris Elba has become one of the most sought after actors in recent years and has become extremely popular with moviegoers. Next up for Idris Elba is the movie Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, which sees him star with Naomie Harris and has just released a new trailer.
Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom sees Idris Elba in the role of Nelson Mandela, while Naomie Harris plays his wife Winnie Mandela. The film follows the life of Nelson Mandela, from his childhood in a rural village all the way up to his election as the South African president.
There have already been a lot of interesting reviews about Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, with most of them being mixed on the fringe of positive. It seems that the one big issue for most people, has been the fact that it just tries to fit too much into the film, when there is simply not the time.
As well as starring Idris Elba and Naomie Harris, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom also boasts Justin Chadwick in the directors chair. Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom opens on limited release in the US on November 29, before hitting the UK on January 3, 2014.
