The lastest trailer for Idris Elba’s upcoming film Bastille Day showed just how Bond-worthy the British actor really is, and now we’ve got some kick-ass new images to obsess over.
Elba stars as CIA agent Sean Briar, who is pulled into protecting unsuspecting pickpocket and thief Michael Mason (Richard Madden), who is mistaken for a possible terrorist. With the clock ticking on an actual impending attack, Briar and Mason have to team up to take out a common enemy.
Elba is really amping things up as Briar, and his physical performance, as well as his alpha male personality, make a great fit for this super slick man of action.
Bastille Day is set to really shake-up fans of the spy genre when it’s released in the UK on April 22, before it makes it way to Australia and New Zealand in June.
