Escape from Pretoria Trailer

"Your whole plan is doomed to failure…" Empire Mag. has debuted the first official trailer for a true story thriller titled Escape from Pretoria, which is opening first in the UK coming up this March. The film is about two white South Africans, imprisoned for working on behalf of the ANC. They attempt to escape from the notorious white man's Pretoria Prison, known as "Robben Island", the same place former President of South Africa Nelson Mandela was imprisoned before. Starring Daniel Radcliffe and Daniel Webber as the two leads, with a cast including Ian Hart, Nathan Page, Stephen Hunter, Mark Leonard Winter, Jeanette Cronin, David Wilson, and Ratidzo Mambo. Based on a true story, of course. This looks like a solid prison escape thriller, about insistent prisoners who want out as a way of fighting back. Have a look.

Here's the first UK trailer for Francis Annan's Escape from Pretoria, direct from Empire's YouTube:
