Trailer of the Hour: Beasts of No Nation (10/16)

Netflix has made some fascinating deals recently. Last year they released a documentary produced by Leonardo DiCaprio called Virunga, which was about conservationists striving against poachers in the Congo. It was nominated for the Documentary Oscar, and deservedly so; it’s riveting from beginning to end. Netflix also has deals for a Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon sequel (!), four Adam Sandler movies (…), and a new Pee-Wee Herman movie (!!). The most exciting of all of these might be Beasts of No Nation, directed by Cary Fukunaga, who directed every episode of the first season of True Detective– that’s the season that didn’t become a sad joke, by the way, in case you haven’t watched either. This trailer is incredible. The emotion is palpable, Idris Elba looks terrifying in his role, and it’s perfectly paced. It’s only one short scene, but if the rest of the movie has half the craft, it’ll be worth watching.
