Final Trailer for 'Beasts of No Nation' - Go See This Film in Theaters
"All of you that have never been listened to before… you now have something that stands for you!" Netflix has debuted one final trailer for Cary Fukunaga's masterpiece Beasts of No Nation, a helluva film that is going to make a mark when it hits theaters this weekend. I love this film (read my review from the Telluride Film Festival), it's phenomenally well-made and features incredible performances, and a brutal but honest story that we don't often hear about. I recently interviewed Fukunaga and talked at length about the film (stay tuned for that) but in the meantime, this is a great trailer if you're still not convinced. And when you do see this, go to the theaters - it's worth it for the sound design alone. Abraham Attah & Idris Elba star.
Here's the final official trailer for Cary Fukunaga's Beasts of No Nation, direct from Netflix's YouTube:
The video above is a short Q&A with the cast & director of Beasts of No Nation from the London Film Fest.
Adapted from Uzodinma Iweala's novel, the story follows "Agu, a young boy in an unnamed West African nation, is recruited into a unit of guerrilla fighters as civil war engulfs his country. Haunted by his father's own death at the hands of militants, Agu is vulnerable to the dangerous yet paternal nature of his new commander. While the war rages on, Agu becomes increasingly divorced from the life he had known before the conflict started—a life of school friends, church services, and time with his family still intact." Beasts of No Nation is written & directed by filmmaker Cary Fukunaga, who has made quite an impact directing Sin Nombre, Jane Eyre and "True Detective". Netflix will release Beasts of No Nation starting October 16th.
