Here's yet another clip from Steve McQueen's 12 Years A Slave, which opens in limited release this Friday, after a much-celebrated, albeit brief trip through the film festival circuit.

In this new short clip, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Solomon Northup is confronted by Sarah Paulson's stone-cold Mistress Epps, as she reminds him of who (or maybe I should say, what) he is.

Fox Searchlight will open 12 Years A Slave theatrically on October 18, in a limited roll-out and will then expand nationwide in successive weeks. 

The drama boasts an impressive cast of actors, including: Chiwetel Ejiofor (as Solomon Northup), Michael FassbenderLupita Nyong'oPaul DanoBenedict CumberbatchRuth Negga, Adepero OduyeAlfre WoodardScoot McNairyGarret DillahuntBrad PittMichael K. WilliamsPaul GiamattiSarah Paulson and others. 

For our past coverage on the film, read Frances Bodomo's review HERE; Jai interviewed Lupita Nyong'o HERE and Alfre Woodard HERE; I interviewed Steve McQueen HERE; and most recently, Vanessa interviewed Kelsey Scott (who plays Northop's wife) HERE.

    All this time, I thought that was an afro-puff on the side of her head, any who. Although the Butler made it's way to my neck of the woods, I doubt this one will. If it does, I have yet to decide If I will partake in the viewing, but I am 100% certain my parents will.

    Exactly....or when they ask folks like Barack Obama to show us his papers. Still a #R$er at the end of the day unfortunately.
