We love seeing Idris Elba being awarded for his roles in Luther and Beasts of No Nation, but do you know what we love even more? Watching him at work.

Elba takes on the role of CIA agent Sean Briar in the action thriller Bastille Day. The film is set in Paris, France, on the eve of Bastille Day. Briar has just returned from the field and has been reassigned as a desk-bound data-analyst, according to IndieWire.

His time holding down a desk is short-lived after a bomb goes off outside a high-traffic Metro station. The CIA zeroes in on suspect Michael Mason (Richard Madden), an American pickpocket.

We watch Briar chase down Mason in the below trailer:

Bastille Day will be released in the U.K. on April 22. It’s still awaiting a U.S. premiere date.

Are you looking forward to seeing Idris Elba in a new role?
