“It only takes one man to change the world.”

Idris Elba flexes his acting chops as South African hero Nelson Mandela in the UK teaser for Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. In the short, but powerful trailer, the Pacific Rim actor stars walks a long field as smiling children surround him. Skyfall actress Naomi Harris also stars as Winnie Mandela in the Justin Chadwick-directed film. Movie critics predict that the biopic could garner a host of awards nominations in 2014.

The film is set for a November 2013 US release before hitting the UK at the top of 2014. Watch the trailer below.
