Idris Elba Punches a Lion

Much as Tomb Raider 2 will always and forever be known (well as much as anybody remembers Tomb Raider 2 at this point, anyway) as "the movie where Angelina Jolie punches a shark," so too shall the new movie Beast, be known as "the movie where Idris Elba punches a lion." I might also personally refer to it as "the movie where Idris Elba runs around in khakis a lot," but...

... that will just be for my own personal files. Anyway this movie is from director Baltasar Kormákur, who made one of my least favorite Jake Gyllenhaal movies -- that would be Everest, but I'll admit it's one of my least favorite Jake movies because they cut out the scene they filmed of Jake naked (we had paparazzi photos from the set) from the final film, and that's just an immediate docking of several grades from your product. But I remember the movie itself being crummy too. Vaguely. Anyway here's the beast trailer, which looks like a lot of late summer fun:

Beast is out on August 19th.
