Idris Elba Trends On Twitter After ‘Beast’ Movie Trailer


Twitter users react to Idris Elba fighting a lion with his bare hands in a new trailer.

Idris Elba is widely known for his acting roles in movies like Daddy’s Little Girls, The Suicide Squad, Obsessed, No Good Deed, and countless others. He has also been featured on TV shows like Thread and Luther. Today, the 49-year-old is making his return to the big screen.

The actor should star in the film The beast, which hits theaters on August 19. Its premise is based on a widowed man and his children. Together the family took a trip to South Africa – where he first met his wife – to visit a game reserve run by a family friend and wildlife biologist.

What’s supposed to be a healing-centric journey quickly turns into ultimate survival once an untamed, man-hunting lion begins stalking them. The big cat is ready to attack anyone he can, and it’s up to Idris, who plays Dr. Nate Samuels, to protect everyone.

The thrilling preview was released yesterday (June 10) and social media users reacted to the action-packed and suspenseful trailer. Some are anticipating the film’s release date and can’t wait to see Idris fight his way to freedom. On the other hand, others question Hollywood’s tactics, saying the film seems too unrealistic.
