WATCH: ‘Beasts of No Nation’ Trailer


Beasts Of No Nation, the gripping story of Agu, a child soldier torn from his family to fight in the civil war of an African country, stars Golden Globe® winner Idris Elba (“Luther,” Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom).

Written and directed by Emmy® Award winner Cary Fukunaga (Sin Nombe, “True Detective”), the film is based on the highly acclaimed novel of the same name by Nigerian author Uzodinma Iweala.

Newcomer Abraham Attah plays Agu, and Elba is compelling as Commandant, a warlord who takes in Agu and instructs him in the ways of war.

Beasts Of No Nation debuts on Netflix and in select U.S. markets on October 16.
