Although it has nothing to do with his upcoming feature film, The Mountain Between Us, the latest promotional video for the action-adventure movie targets all Idris Elba fans. The two-minute video finds Elba reading and reacting to some very interesting bits of fan fiction, including one that involves puff pastries.

The Mountain Between Us was directed by Hany Abu-Assad (Omar, The Idol) and co-stars Oscar winner Kate Winslet (The Reader), Beau Bridges (Bloodline), and Dermot Mulroney (Mozart in the Jungle). The film’s based on the book by Charles MArtin and was adapted for the screen by Chris Weitz and J. Mills Goodloe. 20th Century Fox has set an October 6, 2017 theatrical release date.

The Mountain Between Us Plot: Stranded after a tragic plane crash, two strangers must forge a connection to survive the extreme elements of a remote snow covered mountain. They embark on a perilous journey across hundreds of miles of wilderness discovering strength they never knew possible.
