WATCH: New Trailer for 'Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,' Featuring New Original Song by U2

A new trailer has arrived for “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,” featuring a brand new U2 song, “Ordinary Love.” The film, which stars Idris Elba in the title role of South Africa’s former president and anti-apartheid revolutionary, played to middling reviews upon its TIFF premiere, though praise for Elba continues to be high.

Directed by Justin Chadwick (“The Other Boleyn Girl”) and adapted by scribe William Nicholson (“Les Miserables”) from Mandela’s autobiography, it also stars Naomie Harris as Winnie Mandela.

The film hits theaters November 29, via the Weinstein Company. Our TOH! review out of the New Orleans Film Festival is here. The first trailer is here.
