Idris Elba Rules an Army in New Trailer For BEASTS OF NO NATION
I'm guessing director Cary Fukunaga is probably glad he didn't return for the critically-panned second season of True Detective. After finishing work on the exceptional first season (he directed every episode), he filmed Beasts of No Nation, a new movie for Netflix that seems likely to put the streaming service in contention for some Academy Awards for the first time.
Idris Elba stars as an African warlord who lords over an army of child fighters, and the film is making the festival rounds before debuting in limited theaters and on Netflix on October 16th. Check out the trailer and a new poster below:
When civil war tears his family apart, a young West African boy is forced to join a unit of mercenary fighters and transform into a child soldier.
