July 13, 2013 04:44:49 GMT


"Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom" has unleashed a teaser trailer which features Idris Elba as the South African revolutionary and activist Nelson Mandela.

Even so, it offers a slight taste of Elba's performance as Mandela through a voiceover. "I have walked a long walk to freedom," the actor says in a convincing accent. "It has been a lonely road and it is not over yet. No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin. People learn to hate. They can be taught to love. For love comes more naturally to the human heart."

For the last six days, "Ender's Game" creator Orson Scott Card has been hit with angry outcry from the pro-LGBT group Geeks Out due to his opposition to gay marriage.

To put an end to the community's plan to boycott the Gavin Scott-directed film when released November 1, Lionsgate Entertainment officials make a statement as cited by Deadline.

"As proud longtime supporters of the LGBT community, champions of films ranging from 'Gods and Monsters' to 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' and a company that is proud to have recognized same-sex unions and domestic partnerships within its employee benefits policies for many years, we obviously do not agree with the personal views of Orson Scott Card and those of the National Organization for Marriage," it reads.
