The second poster for the upcoming Nelson Mandela biopic, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, has been released. The film starring Idris Elba as the South African leader highlight’s Mandela’s rise.

Naomie Harris co-stars as Winnie Mandela in a film that producers have said will have an “epic sweep,” from a script written by Gladiator, Shadowlands and Les Miserables writer, William Nicholson that will cover Mandela’s early life, coming of age, education and 27 years in prison.

The Weinstein Company debuted the first trailer at Cannes last month and we’re waiting for it to show up online soon.

The potential Oscar contender, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, will hit theaters on November 29.
