Idris Elba is becoming the Samuel L. Jackson of starring movie appearances.

Hey, a big-studio movie that isn't a sequel, remake, or otherwise already existing IP*?

The people who complain about those things should line up for this thing now!

Actually it does look pretty good

*Not that I'm aware of at least

Too bad he did not have a box he could have tossed out the back of the truck.

My first reaction is "Hey, they're doing The Ghost and the Darkness" again. Sure.

Then I realize it's just Jaws with a big cat. So, "Claws", I guess.

Regardless, looks like stupid fun. I'm in.

Hah, what I was thinking! Was wondering if they were ever in same movie. Probably one of those Marvel ones.

Really? It looks kinda like a repeat of a million of other cheap movies.

But, you have a good point, it's at least a new piece of work.

I'd watch it because he's in it. But I'll wait for it to stream somewhere online.

I feel like Idris Elba can do better.  I'll refrain my final judgment until after I see it, but I do believe the movie may have been written by a robot.
 
2022-05-25 2:59:28 PM  
Yet another slasher movie where a black guy probably dies first? Yaaaaaawn

Idris Elba punching a lion? Interest peaking.

From visceral, experiential filmmaker Baltasar Kormákur, the director of Everest and Universal Pictures' 2 Guns and Contraband,...

Umm ... hmm. Gimmee a second here...

...produced by Will Packer, the blockbuster producer of Girls Trip, the Ride Along franchise, and ten movies that have opened No. 1 at the U.S. box office, including Night School, No Good Deed and Think Like a Man,...

Yeah. Hold on. Let's just sit down for a moment.

...written by Ryan Engle (Rampage, Non-Stop)...

OK that's it. I'm out. You people go see whatever you want.

They must have just given him a nice expensive toy. The joy kids and animals get from the box is directly proportional to the effort/expense of the item that the box contained.

Idris Elba did the voice of Shere Khan in a recent Mowgli film.

Therefore we can see a tiger punch a lion?

Depends on if it's 80% trapped in a car or whether it's just one scene in the car.

"whispers" It's Jurassic Park with a lion.

/though in a refreshing change, I would put money down that the Caucasian guy buys it before Idris.

Yep, I'm local.  They're a bit raggedy these days, but it's fun to show out of towners who don't know about them.

There's one white dude and he's the one with the gun.  A simple probability analysis proves he dies in the middle at the moment you might think he may actually survive and/or be useful.

Came here for this, leaving amusedly.

Also - it's "Cujo," but as an action movie with a hungry lion instead of a horror movie with a rabid St. Bernard, featuring Heimdall & Hardcore Henry. Got it.

Yep. "Cujo" meets "The Ghost and the Darkness," without the cachet of Val Kilmer.

They needed Idris Elba because for almost any other actor on earth, we'd be pulling for the lion.

All of you people with "It's Jaws with a lion . .. ", "Cujo with a lion . . .", "Jurrasic Park . . ."

-- it's so obviously a new take on "Clifford the Big Red Dog Has a Bad Day".

Wow...that really is Sharlto Copley.

Guess we can temporarily cross his name off the 'Whatever Happened To...?' list.
 
2022-05-25 9:47:38 PM  
The pitch for this movie must have been
"Jaws, but with a lion."
"Too expensive. Training lions to swim will take forever."
"Cujo, but with a lion."
"I like where you're going with this..."
"Jurassic Park, but with a lion."
"This is why I pay you the big bucks. Well I don't actually pay you big bucks but if I did this would be why."
"Ghost and the Darkness, but with a lion."
"Yes! Plus since it's only one lion we can save on costs!"
