In new thriller The Take, Game of Thrones‘ Richard Madden plays an American pickpocket living in Paris named Michael Mason who finds himself hunted by the CIA when he steals a bag that contains more than just a wallet. Luther star Idris Elba is a field agent named Sean Briar, who soon realizes that Madden’s character is just a pawn in a much bigger game — and is also his best asset to uncover a large-scale conspiracy. 

Directed and co-written by James Watkins (The Woman in Black, Black Mirror), The Take costars Charlotte Le Bon, José Garcia, and Kelly Reilly. The movie debuts in cinemas and on VOD Nov. 18 via High Top Releasing. See the trailer for The Take below and an exclusive clip from the film above.
