Originally titled “Bastille Day”, The Take is arriving in November in the US and finally lets Idris Elba bust completely loose in the action genre.  Elba plays CIA agent Sean Briar, who is investigating a bombing that occurred in Paris and the prime suspect is pickpocket Michael Mason (Game of Thrones’ Richard Madden).  Mason is adamant that he’s innocent and, when it seems like there’s a conspiracy within the Paris police force, Mason and Briar reluctantly team up to get the truth.  Kelly Reilly, Anatol Yusef, Charlotte Le Bon and Jose Garcia co-star and the movie is directed by James Watkins, who has mostly done horror like The Woman in Black and Eden Lake.  The Take is out in theaters and VOD on November 18th and you can check out the trailer below.
