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). Check out the trailer below via Yahoo and a few new photos above and below.
Set in the 1970s, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy finds George Smiley (Gary Oldman), a recently retired MI6 agent, doing his best to adjust to a life outside the secret service. However, when a disgraced agent reappears with information concerning a mole at the heart of the Circus, Smiley is drawn back into the murky field of espionage. Tasked with investigating which of his trusted former colleagues has chosen to betray him and their country, Smiley narrows his search to four suspects – all experienced, urbane, successful agents – but past histories, rivalries and friendships make it far from easy to pinpoint the man who is eating away at the heart of the British establishment.
Focus Features will release Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy wide on November 18th, 2011.

I’m not sure I’d think much about diving into the work of Les Blank if only given a plot synopsis. His films, including a plethora now available in a stunningly thorough Criterion set, take on the esoteric sides of America, from bluegrass musicians to the wonders of polka to the taste of Creole cooking. These […]
