The Take, formerly known as Bastille Day, has released a new trailer featuring Idris Elba (Luther) and Richard Madden (Game of Thrones‘ one-time King in the North). The action drama was previously set to hit theaters in April but it looks like now The Take will arrive on November 18, 2016 in theaters, digital HD, and On Demand. Directed by James Watkins from a script he co-wrote with Andrew Baldwin, The Take also stars Charlotte Le Bon, José Garcia, and Kelly Reilly.

The Plot: Michael Mason (Madden) is an American pickpocket living in Paris who finds himself hunted by the CIA when he steals a bag that contains more than just a wallet. Sean Briar (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 conspiracy. Going against commands, Briar recruits Michael to use his expert pickpocketing skills to help quickly track down the source of the corruption. As a 24-hour thrill ride ensues, the unlikely duo discover they are both targets and must rely upon each other in order to take down a common enemy.
