Intense 12 Years A Slave TV spot lands online: watch now

A new, nerve-shredding TV spot for Steve McQueen's 12 Years A Slave has landed online.

Though we're given glimpses of Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt as brutal slave drivers, the focus is mostly on Chiwetel Ejiofor's Solomon, a black man forced into slave labour.

Frankly, it looks fantastic. The TV spot effectively cranks up the tension over just 49 seconds, and we can't wait to see what McQueen does with this, unbelievably just his third feature film.

Check out the TV spot below…

12 Years A Slave opens in cinemas on 24 January 2014.
