The final trailer has been released ahead of this week’s Netflix premiere of the gut-wrenching film Beasts of No Nation. Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, the movie is an all too real take on a group of young guerrilla fighters set in West Africa. An adaption of Uzodinma Iweala’s 2005 novel, the film follows a young child soldier named Agu (Abraham Attah), as he is forced to fight in a horrifying civil war and avenge the death of his family. Under the orders of the Commandant (Idris Elba), the story shows what happens when your closest family becomes a group of fellow soldiers.

Watch the terrifying trailer above before the Netflix premiere on October 16. Beasts of No Nation will also be dropping in select cinemas around the world.

If you’re getting geared up for a weekend in front of the box, then be sure to take a peek at the Netflix and Chill button.
