Idris Elba Leads Child Soldiers In ‘Beasts of No Nation’ Trailer

Beasts of No Nation, the new film from Netflix (studios?), stars Idris Elba as a coldblooded leader of child soldiers in Africa. The film is stirring some controversy, and some theater chains are boycotting because Netflix has opted to release it on their streaming service the same day it hits multiplexes.

Here is the trailer for Beasts of No Nation:

The film will first debut at the TIFF, and here is the synopsis from the Festival:

Based on the highly acclaimed novel, director Cary Fukunaga’s Beasts of No Nation brings to life the gripping tale of Agu (newcomer Abraham Attah), a child soldier torn from his family to fight in the civil war of an African country. Idris Elba dominates the screen in the role of Commandant, a warlord who takes in Agu and instructs him in the ways of war.

Beasts of No Nation will generate intrigue from fans of True Detective who think his influence is sorely absent in the muddled, uneven second season. It will also be interesting to see, if this film does generate Awards buzz, how its release on Netflix is handled.

Beasts of No Nation hits theaters and Netflix November 16.
