’12 Years a Slave Trailer’: Michael Fassbender and Steve McQueen Team Up Once Again

The first trailer for 12 Years a Slave has arrived and let’s just say, this movie looks amazing.

Chiwetel Ejiofor, who has been at the top of many people’s list for Black Panther (speaking of, have you checked out our Justice League Casting Couch?), stars as Solomon Northrup. Based on his own memoirs of the same name, the film follows Northrup’s journey from being a freed man living in New York to being tricked by a fake job offer and sold into slavery.

If that’s not the crappiest thing that could happen to a person, I don’t know what is.

Joining Ejiofor is a star-studded cast including Brad Pitt, Alfre Woodard, Michael K. Williams (Chalky White in Boardwalk Empire), Paul Giamatti, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Dano, and Michael Fassbender.

12 Years a Slave marks the third time Michael Fassbender and director Steve McQueen have worked together. McQueen has been nominated and won many awards for his previous work but with this cast combined with a premiere date of December 26th, it appears as McQueen and company might be gunning for the big prize come Oscar time.
