Celebrate BASTILLE DAY In The New Action-Packed Trailer With Idris Elba
The conversation may be long over, but if the case could ever be made for Luther series star, actor Idris Elba to take the 007 crown, you could probably attribute that to director James Watkins. The new trailer for his latest action thriller, Bastille Day, has arrived this week, and while an actor does go through a certain amount of training for a role like this, it also helps that this isn't Elba's first action genre rodeo, and he certainly looks great for it.
Michael Mason (Richard Madden, 'GAME OF THRONES') is an American pickpocket living in Paris who finds himself hunted by the CIA when he steals a bag that contains more than just a wallet. Sean Briar (Idris Elba, 'LUTHER', 'PROMETHEUS'), the field agent on the case, soon realizes that Michael is just a pawn in a much bigger game and is also his best asset to uncover a large-scale conspiracy.
Going against commands, Briar recruits Michael to use his expert pickpocketing skills to help quickly track down the source of the corruption. As a 24hr thrill ride ensues, the unlikely duo discover they are both targets and must rely upon each other in order to take down a common enemy.
