The man was a lover and a fighter — probably more so than you realize
The official trailer for "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom" has hit the web, and its pace is far different than the upcoming film's previously released teaser.
The full-length trailer depicts Mandela ("Pacific Rim's" Idris Elba) as a wanted man, an outlaw and even, a playboy. In the two minute, 31-second video, Mandela meets his wife (Naomie Harris), the nation's first black social worker, preaches peace and non-violence, but oversees plenty of actual violence as well.
The film promises explosives alongside explosive political moments. The Weinstein Company movie opens Jan. 3 in the U.K. and South Africa.
