idris elba bastille day
After putting in a menacing performance in last year’s Netflix original Beasts of No Nation, Idris Elba finds himself on the other side of the battle between good and evil in Bastille Day. Directed by James Watkins, the film pits Elba, a former CIA agent, on an anti-terrorism mission in Paris following a bomb attack in the city (despite its timely theme, filming actually wrapped up in December 2014). Elba is joined by a young con artist (played by Richard Madden, best known for his role as Robb Stark in Game of Thrones) to get to the bottom of conspiracy.
Bastille Day hits theaters later this year.
