Beasts of No Nation

After Nic Pizzolato's hate-watched True Detective Season 2 solo effort crapped HBO's bed, his estranged season one collaborator Cary Joji Fukunaga (Sin Nombre) gets a chance to rub his nose in it with this highly- anticipated Netflix production. The film offers a meaty, awards-baiting role to Idris Elba, who officially reached "Good in Everything" status after transcending the debacles of No Good Deed and The Gunman. Here, he plays a warlord who enlists child soldiers to fight in the civil war of an unnamed African country. Opening in select cities; premieres on Netflix October 16.
