Watching the following new trailer for Tomas Alfredson’s Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy I get goosebumps because I firmly believe this will be one of those rare, intense thrillers that remind you why you love movies, You know the one’s, you watch it and you have an overpowering feeling that you are watching something great, you don’t want it to end. You get entangled in the films mystifying plot, it catches you off guard, shocks you and when it finishes you simply want to sit through the entire thing again. I don’t know about you, but I get that feeling now and again, and this superb looking thriller will no doubt deliver the goods. Arriving at the best possible time for next years Oscars, I can see this collecting few. I would also like to see Gary Oldman pick up best actor, but its a long way off so lets concentrate on what we have right here, a stunning new trailer:
Director Tomas Alfredson is the Swedish fella responsible for one of the greatest horrors in the last ten years, Let the Right One In. He has assembled a rather cracking cast too, Gary Oldman, John Hurt, Tom Hardy, Colin Firth, Toby Jones, Cirian Hinds, Mark Strong, Stephen Graham, Stephen Rea and Benedict Cumberbatch. Blimey, what a cast, the best of the best really. How can this film possible go wrong, expect the highest quality in every respect. As you can probably tell, I am very excited about this film, and the UK will see it arrive in cinemas September 16th.
Synopsis: The man he knew as “Control” is dead, and the young Turks who forced him out now run the Circus. But George Smiley isn’t quite ready for retirement-especially when a pretty, would-be defector surfaces with a shocking accusation: a Soviet mole has penetrated the highest level of British Intelligence. Relying only on his wits and a small, loyal cadre, Smiley traces the breach back to Karla-his Moscow Centre nemesis-and sets a trap to catch the traitor.
