Hitting right in time for Oscar season is Clint Eastwood's latest directorial effort, and it's sure to drum up some nominations. Invictus tells the true story of Nelson Mandela's first term as South African President, when he tasked the South African rugby team to not only compete for the World Cup, but to win it in order to unite the apartheid-torn country.
Invictus has been getting a lot of buzz lately, and for good reason. Eastwood seems to have made another impressive film destined to compete at the Academy Awards, showing off the enormous talents of both Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon. The trailer is inspiring to say the least:
