LATEST poster of Idris Elba as Nelson Mandela!!

Oh boy! Just based on the poster alone, this looks it's gon' be good!

The Hollywood reporter just released this exclusive movie poster and provided a bit more detail on the movie:

Directed by Justin Chadwick, the film follows the freedom fighter's journey from childhood to his election as president of South Africa. The pic, which The Weinstein Co. is distributing in North America, is based on Mandela's autobiography of the same name.
Mandela will have a limited release in the U.S. on Nov. 29, putting it in place for awards consideration.
The film, shot in South Africa, started principal photography at the end of May 2012 in KwaZulu-Natal and went on to shoot for 16 weeks in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Mandela’s home province, the Eastern Cape.
Interesting. What do you guys think of this casting choice? Do you think Idris will nail this role...accent and all?
