Studiocanal have today unveiled the official trailer for Bastille Day, a new high-octane action thriller starring Idris Elba (Luther, Avengers: Age Of Ultron), Richard Madden (Game Of Thrones), Kelly Reilly (Eden Lake) and Charlotte Le Bon (The Hundred-Foot Journey).
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.
Directed by James Watkins (Woman In Black, Eden Lake), Bastille Day will be released in UK cinemas on April 22nd (it was originally scheduled for this month but postponed due to the Paris attack).
