‘Mandela’ Trailer Offers Glimpse At Idris Elba’s Biggest Role To Date

Biopic shows actor's dramatic take on South African activist and former president Nelson Mandela.

The official U.K. teaser trailer for “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” has arrived, and it showcases leading man Idris Elba’s take on South African revolutionary and activist Nelson Mandela. The clip consists of a sparse score and contemplative voice-over from Elba’s Mandela, accompanied by the visual of an airborne tracking shot following Elba while he walks through a field in South Africa.

“I have walked a long walk to freedom,” narrates Elba as Mandela. “It has been a lonely road and it is not over yet. No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin. People learn to hate. They can be taught to love. For love comes more naturally to the human heart.”
