A new trailer for "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom" has made its way out online for viewing pleasure via Yahoo! Movies. Set to an original song by U2, it gives sneak peek at more dramatic scenes from the upcoming biopic, including the sentencing of Nelson Mandela, played by Idris Elba, his time in prison and his wife's attempt to release him.
Two new clips are also released for the movie, with one of them focusing on the title character leading his people who campaign for freedom entering a train for Europeans only. The other snippet shows him as a lawyer in a trial where a black woman is accused of stealing by her former employer.
Based on South African President Nelson Mandela's autobiography of the same name, the biopic chronicles his early life, coming of age, education and 27 years in prison before becoming President and working to rebuild the country's once segregated society.
Justin Chadwick directs the pic with the likes of Naomie Harris, Tony Kgoroge and Terry Pheto joining the cast in supporting roles. The Weinstein Company will distribute it in theaters across the nation for a November 29 release.
