The Trailer For the 007 Film ‘Spectre’ Remixed and Reimagined With Actor Idris Elba as James Bond

With all the recent buzz about whether or not the wonderful British actor Idris Elba make a good 007, a couple of video artists at Vulture sought to answer the question. They remixed the Spectre trailer and in doing so, reimagined the Luther and The Wire star as a perfect James Bond.

What if? The casting idea was entirely hypothetical, but we couldn’t help fantasizing about making it a reality. So we got video artists Diane Bullock and Mike Schuster to put together a trailer for the upcoming Daniel Craig–led Bond spectacle Spectre with Elba as 007. Bask in the results.

The actor recently sat down with Vanity Fair at the Toronto International Film Festival to talk about why he hasn’t played any “smooth, intelligent gangsters” lately.
