The official trailer for Daniel Radcliffe's new movie, Escape From Pretoria, has been released and South Africans are not very happy.
The film is based on the real-life story of Tim Jenkin, an anti-apartheid activist who was incarcerated at Pretoria Maximum Security Prison in the 1970s.
Radcliffe stars as Jenkin who made a daring prison escape using wooden keys he carved for a series of doors inside the jail.
The political prisoner was sentenced to 12 years in prison for handing out leaflets supporting the then banned ANC.
The film will premiere next year, but it's already getting some flak online.
Some Twitter users feel that Radcliffe fails to deliver on the South African accent, with some comparing it to a 'Corne and Twakkie' impersonation.
Parts of the movie were shot in Australia and the film does not seem to feature any South African stars - another major gripe raised by critics.
Below are some of the responses shared on social media this week:
I love Daniel Radcliffe. I like that South African stories are being told. But FFS
