Idris Elba in Bastille Day
StudioCanal

Last year, there was hoopla over whether Idris Elba would become the first black James Bond. Whereas most of us were giving a resounding "Yassssssss," there were others who wanted to keep Bond white. 

Then those who were going "Yassssssss" were immediately like, "F‚ÄĒk a Bond movie; Idris needs his own action film."

Boom.

And here we have the trailer for Bastille Day. 

In the movie, Elba plays a CIA agent … and looks good doing it. And he runs. And he uses his accent. And he drives cars really fast … and he looks good doing it. I wrote that twice on purpose.
