Idris Elba Trains Child Soldiers in Trailer for 'Beasts of No Nation'

Netflix's Beasts of No Nation premiered at Venice the other day, to some very good reviews, although its awards chances are slightly iffier. There seems to be some question as to how rough of a sit it might be, both for general audiences and Academy members. That's not surprising- how could it be when the topic is African child soldiers, right? Yet, I would bet on Elba getting some recognition for acting here- he's supposed to be fantastic and frightening as the commander in charge.
