The Final ‘Beasts of No Nation’ Trailer Arrives

Netflix's Child War Drama

The streaming giant Netflix has released the final Beasts of No Nation trailer, the Cary Fukunaga‘s child war drama based on the book by Uzodinma Iweala and starring Golden Globe winner Idris Elba as the warlord that leads his army of child soldiers in the civil war of an unspecified West African country.

The final trailer for Netflix’s first original film focuses on the back story of the child solider Agu, looking at his life before being taken up by war. Newcomer Abraham Attah delivers the powerful performance of young fighter.

The film debuts on Netflix and in select theaters on October 16th. Watch below.

So glad to see Netflix producing original content like this, but a movie about child soldiers in Africa is going to be a hard, especially for a home audience.

Newcomer Abraham Attah

Beasts of No Nation is based on the highly-acclaimed novel by Nigerian author Uzodinma Iweala, bringing to life the gripping tale of Agu, a child soldier torn from his family to fight in the civil war of an African country. Newcomer Abraham Attah gives a stunning portrayal of Agu, while Elba dominates the screen in the role of Commandant, a warlord who takes in Agu and instructs him in the ways of war.
