Here is a trailer for “12 Years a Slave.” Directed by Steve McQueen, the film opens in theaters nation-wide October 18th.

“12 Years a Slave” is the true story of a man’s fight for a return to the freedom that he once held.

Facing cruelty at the hands of a cruel slave owner (Michael Fassbender) as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon’s chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Brad Pitt) forever alters his life.
