DJANGO UNCHAINED may have ruined slavery based movies for everyone, but director Steve McQueen (SHAME) is hoping people don’t forget how dramatic and emotional a true story can be. The first trailer for the Oscar hopeful, 12 YEARS A SLAVE has arrived and it’s tough to get too much out of this trailer. Much like the case with SHAME, I think 12 YEARS A SLAVE is a film that’s going to rely heavily on its performances and the directing of McQueen. Check out the first trailer below and see if this has a legitimate shot at getting some Oscar glory.
12 YEARS A SLAVE stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Dano, Garret Dillahunt, Paul Giamatti, Scoot McNairy, Lupita Nyong’o, Adepero Oduye, Sarah Paulson, Michael Kenneth Williams and Alfre Woodard. The Steve McQueen directed film hits theaters in a limited release on October 18th.
