Idris Elba in "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom"

The first trailer for Justin Chadwick's "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom" has landed, starring Idris Elba in the title role as the former South African president and anti-apartheid revolutionary. Naomie Harris ("Skyfall") also stars as Mandela's wife of 39 years, Winnie. 

The Weinstein Company snapped up the title back in February. An Oscar-friendly release date is set for November 29.

The film is based on Mandela's autobiography of the same title, adapted by Oscar-nominated scribe William Nicholson ("Les Miserables," "Gladiator"). Director Chadwick has previously helmed "The First Grader" and "The Other Boleyn Girl."

Meanwhile, a rival biopic is also set to hit theaters this fall: "Winnie Mandela," starring Jennifer Hudson in the title role, with Terrence Howard playing Nelson Mandela.
