With just a week to go before the release of Steven Spielberg’s well-reviewed historical drama “Bridge of Spies,” DreamWorks has unveiled a taut new clip from the film featuring Tom Hanks in master negotiator mode.
Written by Matt Charman and the Coen brothers, “Spies” is a dramatic wartime thriller that tells the story of James Donovan (Hanks), a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible task to negotiate the release of a captured American U2 pilot.
The movie also stars Mark Rylance, Amy Ryan, Alan Alda, Scott Shepard and Billy Magnussen. “Bridge of Spies” opens October 16.
