Idris’s New Movie: A Hit?

He may have been snubbed by Oscar, but Idris Elba’s career is in good shape. He has been touted as a possible contender for the next James Bond – and, if the trailer for his next movie “Bastille Day” is anything to go by, Idris Elba is more than comfortable with action-heavy roles that could yield him some hits. In the film, he plays a tough CIA agent, who teams up with a fleet-footed pickpocket (played by “Game of Thrones” star Richard Madden) after the latter steals a bag that contains a little more than he bargained for, and inadvertently places himself at the heart of an international conspiracy. The film – as its title suggests – is centred around the Paris Bastille Day protests.
