New trailer for Endgame (starring Chiwetel Ejiofor). According to the IMDB, the film will have a limited release in the U.S. on Nov. 6 and a TV premiere (?) on Oct. 25.

It's a political drama about the negotiations that led to Nelson Mandela's release from prison in 1990. Chiwetel plays Thabo Mbeki, an exiled militant who later went on to become president of South Africa. William Hurt, Jonny Lee Miller, Derek Jacobi and Mark Strong also star.

Pedants of the world unite. Mbeki stopped being South African president last year; Jacob Zuma however is.
Argh, that's what happens when I turn to search engines for info. Thanks for the correction, I edited the post.
That looks quite promising. I'm guessing this'll be straight-to-video for the rest of the world, if it's airing on TV first? I'll be sure to keep an eye out for it.
This is getting a theatrical release? I thought it was airing on Masterpiece next week. It'll probably up be on the PBS the following week. Wikipedia says it aired in the UK back in May.
Actually, the Masterpiece page might be a better link.
Ugh, I read the link title as "Ender's Game".
According to the Masterpiece site linked by Invisible Green above:
"Endgame will be available for online viewing October 26 - November 8, 2009, Eastern Time"
