Directed by four-time Oscar winner Clint Eastwood ( Million Dollar Baby, Unforgiven) and releasing in UK cinemas on 5 February, Invictus tells the inspiring true story of how Nelson Mandela (played by Morgan Freeman) joined forces with the captain of South Africa's rugby team, Francois Pienaar (Matt Damon), to help unite their country.
Newly elected President Mandela knows his nation remains racially and economically divided in the wake of apartheid. Believing he can bring his people together through the universal language of sport, Mandela rallies South Africa's underdog rugby team as they make an unlikely run to the 1995 World Cup final (click on the image below to watch the trailer).
