4 years ago|529 views
Idris Elba trains child soldiers in the first full trailer for Netflix’s original film “Beasts of No Nation.” In the movie, a young West African boy named Agu is forced to join a unit of mercenary fighters when civil war tears his family apart. Elba plays an African warlord known as the Commandant who attempts to transform Agu into a ruthless killer. Emmy winner Cary Fukunaga, who most recently directed and executive produced the first season of HBO’s “True Detective,” helmed the harrowing drama adapted from Uzodinma Iweala’s 2005 novel. The film world premiered to rave reviews at the Venice Film Festival on Wednesday and hits select theaters and Netflix on October 16.
