Idris Elba Is On a Mission to Save Paris
I don’t think it’s possible to ever get tired of seeing Idris Elba bursting through doors and kicking butt in movies. And thank the good heavens, we’ll be getting that and more in the upcoming action-thriller The Take.
After a bomb threatens the streets of Paris, a pick-pocket thief is caught in the middle of the drama. Enter Elba, a former CIA agent who then enlists the young con as a partner on the anti-terrorist mission in France.
If the film sounds a bit familiar, that’s because it was originally titled, Bastille Day, however after the unfortunate Paris attack, the producers switched it up a bit.
Elba’s character demeanor may be “reckless and irresponsible”, but will his antics get the job done?
Check out the trailer below.
The Take hits theaters, Nov. 18
