You may know him as Nelson Mandela or the next James Bond, but Idris Elba does other stuff too, you know. Mainly crime dramas, like Bastille Day. Here’s the trailer. Like it or not he still gets paid.
Bastille Day is released in the UK from 22nd April 2016
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.
