Also in this brilliant promotional video, you can:

– Watch the entire cast tell you about this incredible charity opportunity that Omaze has put together
– See who Simon Pegg calls Thundernuts
– See a little dance party scene where Simon Pegg looks like he’s the only one who’s ever been to a rave (that’s somehow not surprising)
– That is until Idris Elba break dances. Yeah, you read that right
– Realize that we still don’t know who Idris Elba is playing!
