The first teaser trailer for director Cary Fukunaga’s (True Detective) heavy and scary drama, Beasts Of No Nation, was incredibly tense while not giving away too much at all. Now comes the full length trailer for the Netflix movie, and there is a good chance you will forget to breathe while watching it.
Idris Elba has been critically acclaimed for what is said to be a towering performance as Commandant, a soldier recruiting youngsters to fight in his army in civil war torn Africa. The young actor Abraham Attah, who plays the key character in the story Agu, is also said to give an incredible performance. He has also spoke of how frightening Elba was in his ferocious performance.
The Netflix distributed film has caused controversy because it will be released on Netflix the same day in the US as it hits cinemas, on 16th October, and due to this many cinemas have boycotted the film.
Cary Fukunaga writes and directs the adaptation of the novel Beasts of No Nation, written by Uzodinma Iweala. Idris Elba leads the cast, which also includes Ama Abebrese and newcomer Abraham Attah.
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.
