We’re two weeks away from The Gunman hitting UK cinemas, and we’ll be running our review soon after checking the film out Friday night.

To pass the time,¬†we’ve got a freshly-released clip featuring Sean Penn and Idris Elba.

Here’s the synopsis for the thriller:

A gripping action-thriller from the director of Taken and the producer of The Matrix and Non-Stop, The Gunman stars Oscar-winner Sean Penn as a former military operative dragged into a deadly cat and mouse game. With Penn in his first action role, and a top-notch cast including Javier Bardem, Idris Elba, Ray Winstone and Mark Rylance, The Gunman is a high-octane must-see.

We’re interested to see how Penn handles all this action-type stuff, and there’s certainly enough talent in the support cast.

Here’s the clip:

 

The Gunman hits cinemas on March 20.
