Film Trailers: 12 YEARS A SLAVE
First off, WOW! This film might end up being the best of all the film coming out this Fall. The story of a free black man in New York, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), who is sold into slavery. The film is going to be harsh and show a side of America that should have never happened. A destructive, disgusting side that will always be a terrible, hardened disease in American history. Ejiofor is going to be amazing in this role and Michael Fassbender appears to be at his most devilish. Directed by the stylish, controversial Steve McQueen, who directed the visually astute and intense Hunger and Shame. What a cast too! Ejiofor, Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Benedict Cumberbatch, Alfre Woodward, Paul Giamatti, Sarah Paulson, Paul Dano, Michael K. Williams, Scoot McNairy, Garret Dillahunt, Taran Killam and Quvenzhane Wallis. This is definitely one to watch out for this fall.
