Imagenation Abu Dhabi, in association with Participant Media, has released the first teaser trailer for the upcoming biopic, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Idris Elba (from Pacific Rim) has taken on the sizeable role of Nelson Mandela in the film, and has already come under pressure months before the movie is set to be released; the pressure isn’t eased at all by the recent health issues of Mandela. Based on the teaser, Elba has managed to capture at least some aspects of the distinctive accent, although not 100% “natoorul.” The film, directed by Justin Chadwick, is set for release on 29th November 2013.
