Twitter users are reacting to Idris Elba fighting a lion with his bare hands in a new movie trailer.
The actor is set to star in the movie Beast, which will be released in theaters on August 19. Its premise is based on a widowed man and his children. Together, the family took a trip to South Africa– which is where he first met his wife– to visit a game reserve which is managed by a family friend and wildlife biologist.
What is meant to be a trip centered around healing quickly turns into the ultimate survival once an untamed, man-hunting lion begins stalking them. The large cat is out to attack anyone it can, and it’s up to Idris, who is playing Dr. Nate Samuels, to keep everyone safe.

Idris Elba was fighting level 5 Kaijus, a tandem of The Rock & Jason Statham, fighting a lion is light work

Tom Cruise can hang on the side of a plane with his fingers, and people swoon. Fast forward to Idris Elba punching a lion. Somehow that's the most unrealistic thing they have seen. ok.
