Idris Elba will no doubt be the centre of serious awards talk for anyone who’s seen the trailer for Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom. A change of pace for the star after ‘bots vs monsters melee Pacific Rim, the film sees him play Nelson Mandela, charting the South African politician’s rise to anti-Apartheid figurehead. Naomie Harris co-stars as his wife Winnie Mandela, and Justin Chadwick (The Other Boleyn Girl) directs.
