Final Trailer: “Beasts of No Nation”

A major experiment kicks off this week as acclaimed filmmaker Cary Fukunaga’s child war drama “Beasts Of No Nation” is set to premiere not only in limited release cinemas but on Netflix’s streaming service this coming Friday October 16th.

Reviews from the festival circuit paint the film as a very bleak and intense picture about a child soldier who is recruited for battle by a brutal warlord (Idris Elba). The film is very much a prestige picture, the big question is if Academy members will hold the film’s streaming release plans against it.
