Studiocanal released the first trailer for Bastille Day, starring Idris Elba and Richard Madden from HBO’s Game of Thrones.
Michael Mason (Richard Madden) is an American pickpocket living in Paris who finds himself in the hands of the CIA when he steals a bag that contains more than just a wallet. Sean Briar (Idris Elba), 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 criminal conspiracy in the heart of the police force.
Going against commands, Briar recruits Michael to help quickly track down the source of the corruption. As a 24hr chase ensues, the unlikely duo discover they are both targets and must rely upon each other in order to take down a common enemy.
The film is directed by James Watkins and Jill Gagé from Andrew Baldwin’s script.
On April 22 the studio plans to release Bastille Day in the UK. No North American dates were announced.
