New clips have become available for 12 Years a Slave, Steve McQueen’s new epic film that has been getting rave reviews at film festivals around the world. There is even talk of Oscar buzz over the film as well.

As previously reported, British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor leads an all-star cast that also includes Alfre Woodard, Brad Pitt, Paul Giamatti, Michael Kenneth Williams, Quvenzhané Wallis and introducing Lupita Nyong’o.

12 Years a Slave  tells the story of Solomon Northup, a free Black man from New York who worked as a carpenter and violinist before he was kidnapped and sold into slavery in Louisiana. For 12 years, he was enslaved before he was able to get the whereabouts to his family. The film is based on Northup’s best-selling memoir of the same name.
