With three international trailers for Tomas Alfredson‘s Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy already having been released, I was starting to forget that we never got an American one in the first place. Yahoo! is here to amend that, with a fantastic new preview of the spy thriller.
Every time I see one of these, a different element strikes me with the most force. This time around, it’s the cinematography of Hoyte van Hoytema, which captures the feeling of its ’70s setting with total precision. That’s not to say that everything else doesn’t look terrific, including the acting from a cast that is so British it almost hurts. As someone who loves a good spy thriller, this is one I can’t wait for.
Watch the trailer below:
There’s also a new poster, which Yahoo! has also debuted:
Based on the novel by John le Carré and starring Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Benedict Cumberbatch, Toby Jones, John Hurt, David Dencik, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Stephen Graham, Kathy Burke, and Ciarán Hinds, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy opens on December 9th.
What do you think of this trailer? How does it compare to the ones we’ve previously seen?
