Social media users reacted on Friday to the events in Nice, saying the attack in the French city was similar to the recently released  movie ‘Bastille Day’, that was in cinemas only a few months ago.

Bastille Day, starring Elba and Richard Madden, centers around a young con-artist and former CIA agent embarking on an anti-terrorist mission in France and premiered three months ago.

On Friday, in somewhat similar scenes to the movie, 84 people were killed in Nice, France, when a French-Tunisian driver smashed his way into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day, France’s National Day celebrated annually on July 14.

In one poster for the movie, Twitter users were quick to point out a van crushing into oncoming traffic while Elba graces the page with a gun.
