Watch: Final Trailer For Cary Joji Fukunaga's 'Beasts Of No Nation' Brings Forth Horror Of War

The awards season experiment begins this week with “Beasts Of No Nation.” After premiering at the Telluride Film Festival, and hitting TIFF, Netflix’s Oscar hope will open in limited release and hit their platform at the same time this Friday. Will the Academy recognize a movie that they can watch on their phone? Will Cary Joji Fukunaga‘s movie be too intense for the older crew of the voting branch? It’ll be interesting to watch it play out.

But before any of that conversation can really start happening, the movie has to land, and a new trailer has arrived to get everyone prepared for what’s coming. Idris Elba stars in the picture, based on the book by Uzodinma Iweala, that is told through the eyes of a child soldier, who is recruited for battle by a brutal warlord. It looks nothing short of intense and harrowing, and it’s definitely one of the must-see movies this fall.
