Director Steve McQueen is a filmmaker we’ve championed ever since we started our site back in 2008. McQueen’s first feature Hunger landed on our list of best films that year, and his follow up Shame topped our our list of best films of 2011. His latest pic 12 Years A Slave was not only the winner of the Toronto International Film Festival People’s Choice Award, but one of the critical darlings of the fall festival circuit. John Oursler recently reviewed the film calling it, “a heart-shattering masterpiece.” Fox Searchlight is taking full advantage of the positive hype and has released a brand new clip which I’ve embedded below. Enjoy! 12 Years A Slave opens in limited release on October 18th and will be released wide on November 1st.
