Idris Elba is ready to embrace his inner Jack Bauer as Apple+ is unveiling a new trailer for their real time action-thriller series Hijack. The title says it all as the gravitas fueled Elba is in the right place at the wrong time when terrorists take over a plane he just happens to be on. Check the real time action drenched theatrics below!
The action takes place in real-time, over the course of the seven-hour flight from Dubai to London. The clock starts ticking as Sam (played by Idris Elba) tries first to negotiate and then outsmart the terrorists but, in so doing, uncovers a larger conspiracy. The action takes place in real-time, over the course of the seven-hour flight from Dubai to London. On the ground in London, a counter-terrorism team led by Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife) becomes embroiled in the investigation and scrambles to find answers before passengers start dying.
Fellow cast members include Archie Panjabi is an ensemble that includes Christine Adams, Max Beesley, Eve Myles, Neil Maskell, Jasper Britton, Harry Michell, Aimee Kelly, Mohamed Elsandel and Ben Miles.
This looks to be a delicious blend of psychological and physical warfare and Elba is always, and I mean always, solid in anything that he does. One thing is for sure, and that’s always bey on black! I’m sorry, is that politically inaccurate to say in today’s times. Well if it is, ask me if I give a f___.
Hijack takes off on AppleTV+ on June 28!!!
