Those lucky UK’ers get Tomas Alfredson‘s spy thriller Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy next month and we are planning to have a review from our correspondent over there, but for now, all of us in the states will have to live and die by these international trailers. After two excellent one the latest has arrived and it is a bit of letdown with the lame voice-over, but still worth checking out.
Premiering at Venice Film Festival, Alfredson’s Let The Right One In follow-up stars Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Benedict Cumberbatch, Toby Jones, David Dencik, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Stephen Graham, Kathy Burke, Ciarán Hinds, as well as author John le Carré (who called the film “a triumph” yesterday).
