UPDATE: In addition to this morning's first-look footage at the film, a pair of new posters have surfaced, showing BOTH Idris Elba as Nelson Mandela AND Naomie Harris as Winnie Mandela. All previous posters featured Idris as Nelson only.

UPDATE: In addition to this morning's first-look footage at the film, a pair of new posters have surfaced, showing BOTH Idris Elba as Nelson Mandela AND Naomie Harris as Winnie Mandela. All previous posters featured Idris as Nelson only.

So I suppose this is our first official look at Harris as Winnie. The full posters are below.

After being teased with 3 different posters, but not a single clip, or a trailer for the film, here's your first look at some footage from the film, although it's also just a tease, giving us a distant look at Idris Elba as Nelson Mandela.

MandelaLong Walk to Freedom, directed by Justin Chadwick, highlights Mandela's early life, education and 27 years in prison. 

The Weinstein Company will open it on November 29 - likely as one of its Oscar contenders. 

The first full trailer (not this teaser) was unveiled at Cannes last month, and I expect it to show up online soon. We hope.

It's a film that we've curiously seen very of, as it's all been kept under-wraps.

Naomie Harris co-stars as Winnie Mandela in a film that producers have said will have an "epic sweep," from a script written by GladiatorShadowlands and Les Miserables writer, William Nicholson.

South African stars Tony Kgoroge, Riaad Moosa, Zolani Mkiva, Jamie Bartlett, Lindiwe Matshikiza, Deon Lotz and Terry Pheto, round out the cast.

Here's the newly-released UK teaser (the 4 posters underneath). I'll reserve commentary until I see more:
