Tom Hardy and Colin Firth in the first Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
One of the smaller movies coming out this year that I’m keeping my eye on is the spy film TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY. I love a good spy movie and this one looks like it’s gritty and dark enough to deliver where many spy films fail. It’s about the search for an undercover spy that reaches the top levels of British intelligence. It has an amazing cast that includes Tom Hardy, Colin Firth, Gary Oldman, Mark Strong, Benedict Cumberbatch, John Hurt and Kathy Burke. Although, the trailer has a very heavy dose of Gary Oldman, so it seems as if he’s the main focus of the film. Tomas Alfredson (LET THE RIGHT ONE IN) is directing the film based on John Le Carre’s classic novel.
The trailer is short, but it gets the blood pumping and does the movie justice by setting up the intensity in barely a minute. They also use Danny Elfman’s music from THE WOLFMAN probably more effectively in this trailer than they did in that entire film. The film is due to hit theaters in the U.S. on November 19th.
