New US Trailer for 'The Take' with Idris Elba, Formerly 'Bastille Day'
"Briar - you're reckless, and irresponsible - you can't just run and start firing." High Top has revealed a new trailer for a film now titled The Take, though it was originally titled Bastille Day when it opened in Europe earlier this summer. You may remember hearing about it, as we ran the UK trailer at the beginning of the year. Idris Elba stars as a former CIA agent who goes to Paris to help with an anti-terrorism mission. However, he proves to be more reckless than helpful. Also starring Richard Madden, Kelly Reilly and Charlotte Le Bon. Early reviews out of Europe indicate this is sadly quite mediocre. One co-director even dropped out, along with the title change, meaning this is probably worth skipping unless you need to see it.
Here's the newest trailer (+ an original poster) for James Watkins' The Take, direct from YouTube:
A young artist and former CIA agent embark on an anti-terrorist mission in France. Featuring Richard Madden, Charlotte Le Bon, Alexander Cooper, Anatol Yusef, José Garcia. Bastille Day is co-directed by filmmakers James Watkins (of Eden Lake, The Woman in Black) & Jill Gagé - though IMDb now says it's only Watkins - from a screenplay written by Andrew Baldwin (who also wrote the script for the Jason Bourne sequel). The film originally opened in the UK in April earlier this year, and the rest of Europe during the summer. Visit the UK site here. High Top Releasing will be releasing the film under the title The Take in limited US theaters + on VOD starting November 18th later this fall. If anyone is still interested. Maybe?
