Not every movie needs a splashy marketing campaign or media blitz in order to entice audiences to the theater when a simple tagline or premise is often more than enough to do the trick. In the case of Beast though fans are genuinely disappointed in themselves for how much they want to see Idris Elba fight a lion.
Essentially a B tier action thriller with A-list talent the actor stars as a recent widower who jets off to South Africa with his children to visit a game reserve staffed by Sharlto Copleys longtime friend marking his return to the country where he met his late spouse. However things quickly spiral out of control leaving the family and their guide at the mercy of a hungry apex predator.Nobodys going into Beast expecting high art but even at that folks have been readily admitting that they are fully on board for the film even though they are fully aware theres a distinct possibility it will be terrible.
Lol so we got Idris Elba punching a lion on that trailer like seriously Hollywood this is the best you could come up with? Once upon a time Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow was in line to helm the ninth mainline installment in the Star Wars franchise which eventually morphed into J.J. Abrams The Rise of Skywalker once the original candidate to tackle the final chapter in the Skywalker Saga was shown the door.At the time fans were torn on the decision especially when The Last Jedi had polarized opinion to a degree never seen before in a galaxy far far away with Abrams viewed a safe pair of hands that would do little more than attempt to right the ship. However now that Jurassic World Dominion has been unleashed in theaters some folks think Star Wars may have dodged a bullet.
