Must Watch: Steve McQueen's '12 Years a Slave' Theatrical Trailer
"If you want to survive, do and say as little as possible." Fox Searchlight has debuted the theatrical trailer for Steve McQueen's new film 12 Years a Slave, starring Chiwetel Ejiofor as Solomon Northup, a free black man from upstate New York who is abducted and sold into slavery. This is a tremendously powerful first trailer, with some beautiful moments and I couldn't be more excited for this. It looks phenomenal. The ensemble cast really shines, including Michael Fassbender, Dwight Henry, Benedict Cumberbatch, Sarah Paulson, Paul Giamatti and even Brad Pitt. If you love Oscar level films, do not miss this trailer.
Here's the first theatrical trailer for Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave, in high def from Apple:
Steve McQueen's Twelve Years a Slave stars Chiwetel Ejiofor (of Serenity, Kinky Boots, Children of Men, American Gangster, Salt) as Solomon Northup, a man living in New York during the mid-1800s who is kidnapped and sold into slavery in the deep south. The film has an incredible ensemble cast to go along, featuring Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Beasts nominee Quvenzhané Wallis, Dwight Henry, Paul Giamatti, Benedict Cumberbatch, Sarah Paulson, Michael K. Williams and Marcus Lyle Brown. Fox Searchlight has the film scheduled for limited release on October 18th, 2013 early in the awards season. Thoughts now?
