Beasts of No Nation

"Agu, go on! Agu!" Netflix has debuted the first teaser trailer for Cary Fukunaga's Beasts of No Nation, the latest feature from a talented filmmaker. When civil war tears his family apart, a young West African boy is forced to join a unit of mercenary fighters and transform into a child soldier. The film stars Abraham Attah as Agu, the boy, along with Idris Elba as Commandant in a powerful role. The film looks brutal, and tough, but still beautiful like all of the films Fukunaga has made so far. I'm very intrigued to see how this plays out. If the film is as good as it looks, then Netflix is going to ruffle some feathers when they release it.

Here's the first teaser trailer for Cary Fukunaga's Beasts of No Nation, direct from Netflix's YouTube:

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.

It is such a pleasure to watch Idris Elba act. The man is a force of nature on screens small or big.

I think it's very sad that fukunaga is not doing IT anymore, it would be very great with Poulter as pennywise because true detective was very intense. He has allot of potential to become a great director...

Chills, holy moly.

After watching Sin Nombre, I've become a huge fan of Cary Fukunaga's work. He is the reason for my watching True Detective, and I'm so glad I did. He so deserved the Emmy for that. This trailer gave me chills. October can't come soon enough for me.
