Movie Trailer for 'Invictus' Just Released

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Clint Eastwood's new film Invictus, which tells the “inspiring true story of how Nelson Mandela joined forces with the captain of South Africa’s rugby team, Francois Pienaar, to help unite their country.” Matt Damon plays Pienaar, and Morgan Freeman plays Mandela.

Newly elected President Mandela knows his nation remains racially and economically divided in the wake of apartheid.  Believing he can bring his people together through the universal language of sport, Mandela rallies South Africa’s underdog rugby team as they make an unlikely run to the 1995 World Cup Championship match.

The movie opens on December 11.

I recommend you read the book "Playing the Enemy" by John Carlin which provides real insight into Mandela and what happened.
