Netflix Debuts Trailer for Political Thriller 'Bodyguard'

Netflix just debuted a crackling trailer for British political thriller Bodyguard starring Game of Thrones actor Richard Madden as a volatile war veteran now working as a Specialist Protection Officer for London’s Metropolitan Police Service.

Reviews have been exceptional so far, with Madden's performance, in particular, standing out to nearly all critics. He's so good in the role, in fact, that rumors indicate Eon Productions producer Barbara Broccoli is likely to offer him the part of James Bond within the coming week. (Take that with a grain of salt, of course, but we're here for it.)

It hits the streaming service on Oct. 24, so keep that weekend clear.
