Idris Elba gives a very James Bond-worthy performance in ‘Bastille Day’

For a while now, fans of Idris Elba have been clamoring for him to take over the titular role in a James Bond movie, and the new trailer for Bastille Day has only served to solidify those claims.

After all, watching Elba slay as an action hero in his role as a rogue CIA agent is pretty much the best audition tape we can think of to prove our argument.

In Bastille Day, Elba’s character discovers a dangerous conspiracy linked to a potential terrorist attack in France and is forced to team up with a pickpocket as he investigates the situation.

The movie hits theaters on April 22nd and you can check out the trailer above.
