Idris Elba Makes One Hell of a James Bond in (Fake) Fan Trailer for Spectre

Right off the bat: this trailer’s a fan trailer. It’s one fan’s imaginative expression of what they think Idris Elba as James Bond would look like. I mean, if you can’t tell given the fact that Spectre has already been filmed, then I can’t help you. Okay?

But seriously, this kind of just renews our fervor at seeing Elba take on the iconic role of BondJamesBond. The edits in this trailer are well done, save for a kind of awkward head swap at the end. Give it a look-see and let us know what you think!
