New Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Trailer

A fresh look at Oldman's mole hunt

We don’t want to overcook this one, but Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy looks absolutely bloody amazing. After the stunning posters that have hit the net recently and the initial teaser trailer back in late June, the excitement in the office ihas been almost palpable.

Then a new, longer trailer arrived today – and boy is it good.

Featuring more footage of more of the cast, we see plenty of Tom Hardy’s Ricki Tarr and Benedict Cumberbatch’s Peter Guillam, as well as – of course – Gary Oldman’s George Smiley.

The nervousness about the film not being able to match the original TV series’ quality has all but evaporated now – the only worry being whether they’ll be able to cram on all of John le Carré’s plotstrands in just one movie.

That, of course, still waits to be seen, but after watching this new trailer (again) we’re increasingly enthusiastic about its upcoming release in September.

Who knows, maybe this will be one to get Oldman his Oscar – it seems so unfair that it still says “Gary Oldman, BAFTA winner” in his trailers…

Anyway, check out the video below and when you’re done, let us know your thoughts on the adaption of the Spy classic in the comment box below.

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy is out September 16. Oh, and if you're looking for an in-depth look at the film, you best check out our feature on it in this month's magazine, which is on shelves now.
