Pathe UK has released two character posters for Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, which opens in the UK January 3.

The film follows Nelson Mandela’s extraordinary life journey
from his childhood in a rural village through to his inauguration as the first democratically elected President of South Africa.

With Idris Elba as the former South African President and Naomie Harris as Winnie Mandela, the film stands to be a contender in the 2014 Oscar race.

The images of both actors are especially captivating, with the political activists posing in regal fashion amid an abstract background.
