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–k a Bond movie; Idris needs his own action film.”
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.
In conclusion, “Yassssssss, Bond who?” The movie hits theaters April 22.
