Watch: Full-Length Trailer for Cary Fukunaga's 'Beasts of No Nation'

September 4, 2015

Beasts of No Nation

"I will always protect you because you are my son…" Netflix is ready to rumble. The digital distributor has debuted a new trailer for Cary Fukunaga's Beasts of No Nation, their first ever original feature film release. The film is premiering at the Venice and Telluride Film Festivals this week, so be on the lookout for early reviews and feedback. In the meantime, this full-length trailer gets into the very intense story about a boy named Agu, played by newcomer Abraham Attah, who gets recruited into a unit of guerilla fighters led by Idris Elba. Early word is that this is a very visceral, powerful thriller that really delves into the mind of what makes these kids into fighters. I'm looking forward to seeing this, with plans to catch it in Telluride.

Here's the latest full-length trailer for Cary Fukunaga's Beasts of No Nation, found on YouTube:

Beasts of No Nation Poster

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.

Look! Netflix got all growed up! Producing and releasing it's own movies like the big kids! Looks pretty powerful. Depressing as hell, but powerful. Idris Elba looks great. Also, he should be Bond. The man's got the acting chops and charisma.

nah, he's too street to play bond

Ryan on Sep 4, 2015


Bond is overrated role anyway ...

you're an idiot

NewsGuest on Sep 7, 2015


Oh, come on, can't you do better than this? Why so base and angry?

shiboleth on Sep 7, 2015


I hate idiots

NewsGuest on Sep 7, 2015


Which means that you don't know much about people. Your bad ...

shiboleth on Sep 7, 2015


That literally made zero sense...I guess my hatred for you isn't

NewsGuest on Sep 7, 2015


You're so shallow with hatred ...

shiboleth on Sep 7, 2015


Maybe if the world wasn't full of idiots I could lead a happy me out by offing yourself

NewsGuest on Sep 7, 2015


Oh come on, your attempt to offend is really sad. And, well, your quest really does not have any chance. Since you can't stop idiotizing just about everything, there's no way out. Don't suffocate yourself with all that idiotic stuff. And, give some chance to discuss the subject. The one you missed noticing a long time ago ...

Give me fiiiive! Bore me more ...

Never can figure out people wanting him to play Bond, such a random role to pick for him that traditionally doesn't take a lot of acting chops to pull off. Why not clamor for him to get an original great role to play?

cuckoozey on Sep 5, 2015


Yep. Bond is too old-fashioned. He can do much better than it

Netflix is going to become HBO before HBO becomes Netflix We had a meeting at our job about what is going on with them.... Also this looks god..I hope idris Elba gets an Oscar nod

Trey on Sep 4, 2015


And the Best Actor in a Leading Role goes to...

DAVIDPD on Sep 4, 2015


You've seen this movie?

NewsGuest on Sep 7, 2015


It's a good title. And a scary story. I hope it delivers more than shallow morality story ...

shiboleth on Sep 5, 2015


yeah...if people are going to suffer in this world we better be entertained properly when we sit comfortably in a theater watching their story.

NewsGuest on Sep 7, 2015


Fair enough. And wrong enough. Who said anything about being entertained? Not my cup of tea. And besides, what about you, who are you fighting for in all that?

shiboleth on Sep 7, 2015


A story of trepidation, corruption and damaging brokenness!

India Music Station on Sep 5, 2015


Looks mental this. I think most countries would love to have child soldiers, but luckily the moral outrage would be too strong.

Carpola on Sep 7, 2015


Are you fucking mad!!!

LBR on Sep 8, 2015


WW1 and WW2 had loads of children in uniform, do you think a government really cares who dies? They don't have to get down and do anything. Did you upvote yourself?

Carpola on Sep 9, 2015


Is this like a sequel to Straight out of Compton?

NewsGuest on Sep 7, 2015


Seems pretty boring to me
