Watch: Full 'Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom' Trailer with Idris Elba
"Something has to change." In the midst of Comic-Con, The Weinstein Company has decided to debut the full-length trailer for Justin Chadwick's Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, starring Idris Elba as the iconic South African humanitarian/liberator Nelson Mandela. Just last week they unveiled a teaser trailer which didn't feature much besides a voiceover with Elba in Mandela's acccent, but now we get to explore the character and complete story and it certainly looks powerful. In addition to Elba, the cast includes Naomie Harris as Winnie Mandela. But I think it's Idris who may at least get a nomination out of this. Take a look.
