Watch: 2 Clips Plus New Images From 'Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom'

With little in the way of critical buzz to build on, “Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom” serves up a bit of a marketing conundrum for The Weinstein Company. So far, it seems they’ve decided to solve that problem with U2 songs and numerous clips, and today comes more scenes and images from the movie.

If you’re worrying about the spoilers (though we’re not sure this is the kind of movie that can be “spoiled”) or the whole movie being given away first, just remember that this flick is over two-and-a-half-hours long, so there’s plenty more where these came from. Anyway, below you’ll see Idris Elba in the lead role, playing Nelson Mandela quite well as he struggles to secure equals rights for blacks in Apartheid divided South Africa. Our only issue thus far? The old age makeup looks…not good…

“Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom” opens on November 29th.
