A look at the first trailer for "12 Years A Slave"

12 Years A Slave Trailer
Happy Monday folks. And boy do I have a trailer for you.

Slavery is a tough subject. It is very powerful, raw material. "Django Unchained" proved that last year, but it looks like "12 Years A Slave" might be even better. This movie will tell the true story of Solomon Northrup, who was a New York freeman until he was deceived into becoming a slave. 

The film stars Chiwetel Ejilofor, a great character actor who is finally front and center in his own film. I have been waiting for a long time for this guy to become a lead, and I can't wait to watch him shine in this role. The rest of the cast includes Michael Fassbender, Benedict Cumberbatch, Brad Pitt and Paul Giamatti. A stellar cast. Take a look at the trailer.

Yep, be looking for this to make some Oscar noise later this year. I am predicting that already.

12 Years A Slave will hit theaters December 27th 2013
