The first poster for director Clint Eastwood’s “Invictus” (formerly titled The Human Factor), starring Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman has been released.
The film tells the inspiring true story of how Nelson Mandela joined forces with the captain of South Africa’s rugby team 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 Championship match.
The film hits theaters on December 11 in limited release.
