Just over a month ago the promising teaser for the anticipated spy flick “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy,” dropped and boded out of extremely good things to come. No big surprise really, given that it marks the first English language film from “Let the Right One In” director Tomas Alfredson and boats an amazing cast that includes the likes of Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Mark Strong and Ciaran Hinds.
If the first preview didn’t already have you all riled up, the film’s fleshed out trailer that hit the web today will be sure to do the trick.
Based on the John le Carre bestselling psychological thriller, “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” stars Oldman as George Smiley, an espionage veteran who comes out of semi-retirement to help uncover a Soviet mole in MI6’s ranks. (Fun Fact: A BBC miniseries adaptation of the novel netted Alec Guiness a BAFTA TV Award for Oldman’s role back in 1980. Might this be the disturbingly never-nominated Oldman’s year come awards season?)
The Focus Features release opens in the U.K. on September 16 and hits the U.S. on November 18.
