Director Cary Fukunaga’s absence from True Detective is still being felt in the show’s somewhat infamous second season, but fans of the director’s work in the first season of the show have a new Fukunaga joint to look forward to – the Netflix original movie Beasts of No Nation, starring Idris Elba.
Now, Beasts of No Nation has its first official trailer, giving viewers their first look at the film, which is about a child forced to fight in a West African civil war. Elba is the villainous warlord doing the forcing, and the movie is actually getting a limited theatrical release on the same day as its Netflix premiere.
That’s on October 16th, but in the meantime you can watch the first teaser trailer for Beasts of No Nation below. And for more from Netflix, just fire up whatever device your Netflix account is currently connected to, or just check out the media provider’s official site here.
