This is quite a time to be releasing a movie about Nelson Mandela. The venerable South African leader turned 95 on July 18 and has been the subject of worldwide attention in recent weeks as his health suffered and then, more recently, began to improve. Amid all that interest in the real Mandela comes this new trailer for the Mandela biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.
Idris Elba stars, alongside Skyfall‘s Naomie Harris as Winnie Mandela, in a movie that aims to look at the whole scope of Mandela’s life.
The British production will be in select U.S. theaters on Nov. 29, 2013.
