First Trailer for Idris Elba's Directorial Debut 'Yardie' with Aml Ameen

Yardie Trailer

“It’s time to let go… Choose the right path, son.” Get your first look at the directorial debut of English actor Idris Elba, titled Yardie. This film premiered at both the Sundance and Berlin Film Festivals, and should hit theaters later this year, even though there still isn’t any news on a US distribution deal. Elba’s Yardie, based on the novel by Victor Headley, is about a young Jamaican boy who moves to London in the 80s and gets involved in gang war in Hackney. Aml Ameen stars as D, and the cast includes Everaldo Creary, Stephen Graham, Mark Rhino Smith, Akin Gazi, Fraser James, Deepak Anand, Naomi Ackie, and Shantol Jackson. I wish I could say this is a great film and everyone should watch it when it comes out, but I just saw it at the Berlin Film Festival, and it’s no good. It has some seriously bad scenes and the direction is lackluster. I really wish it was better than it is. Take a look anyway, maybe others will still dig it. ›››
