The first trailer for Cary Fukunaga’s upcoming Beasts of No Nation is an emotional, intense look into the life of an African child soldier that ends with Idris Elba’s character forcing the little boy to make a choice: kill the man in front of him who possibly killed his family — or let him escape with his life.
Beasts of No Nation is a Netflix original film based on Uzodinma Iweala’s 2005 novel of the same name, and will be one of the first Netflix original films along with Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, The Ridiculous Six, and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend. It’s set to begin streaming Oct. 16, and will debut in select Landmark theaters in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington D.C., Atlanta, Indianapolis, Detroit, Chicago, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, St. Louis, Houston, Dallas, Denver, Seattle, San Francisco, and San Diego that same day. The film will debut at the Venice Film Festival and also screen at the Toronto International Film Festival. See the trailer above.
