Invictus gets a trailer.

While the idea of Morgan Freeman playing Nelson Mandela seems like a painfully obvious choice with irresistible appeal, this still feels like an underdog sports movie where the team realizes that they aren't just playing for themselves. Clint Eastwood has been on an insanely strong winning streak since 2003 (even The Changling was a strikingly engaging B-movie melodrama), so I can't imagine this one being any less than entertaining. Still, for a movie that is supposed to be the Warner Bros Oscar front-runner, this one appears to be coasting on the reputation of those involved. It goes wide on December 11th.
