"Twelve Years A Slave" is already one of the most talked about movies of 2013, and it doesn't even arrive in theaters for another month. That's what a debut like the one Steve McQueen's film enjoyed at the Toronto International Film Festival will do for a feature. Based on the acclaimed memoir, "12 Years A Slave" focuses on Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free New Yorker who gets drugged and kidnapped into slavery in 1841. Michael Fassbender, Sarah Paulson, Lupita Nyong'o, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Dano, Paul Giamatti and Brad Pitt all co-star in the film, which is set for release on Oct. 18. Courtesy of Fox Searchlight, HuffPost Entertainment is pleased to debut five new photos from the film, featuring Ejiofor, Fassbender and Paulson.
