The Weinstein Co. Celebrates Nelson Mandela's 95th Birthday With Full Trailer of His Biopic


The first full-length video of 'Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom' teases the revolutionary leader's struggles to end apartheid in South Africa.

Just in time for Nelson Mandela's 95th birthday today, The Weinstein Co. debuts first full-length trailer of "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom". Unlike the teaser trailer that merely offered a first listen to Idris Elba in his role as the anti-apartheid leader, the latest one features appearances from the lead actor and other supporting characters, and gives a peek at the story.

Set to K'naan's "Wavin Flag", the video teases young Mandela's attempts to put an end on repressive laws against black South Africans through peaceful means. Among scenes shown in it, the most memorable one is perhaps when Elba delivers Mandela's infamous words, "My Lord, it is not I, but the government that should plead guilty."

The trailer additionally gives a look at Mandela as a husband and a father who dreams of seeing his beautiful children and wife "walk free in their own land." Featured as his beautiful and tough wife Winnie is Naomie Harris, best known for starring in "Skyfall".

Set for a limited release on November 29 in the U.S., "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom" is based on autobiographical work written by Mandela himself. Mark Elderkin, Carl Beukes and Tony Kgoroge are some of other supporting actors in the pic.
