New Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Trailer
A fresh look at Oldman's mole hunt

04 August 2011  |  Written by Ali Plumb  

submit to reddit

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.

Oh. My. SHIT!!! I need this NOW More

Not Sure
I've read the book and seen the tv and I have to say I'm still not sure about this. The trailers suggest (only suggest mind you) at least two plot changes that change it significantly. Plus what was that comment saying the acting in the TV show was ropey about? I only have to point to Edge of Darkeness and State of Play for 'best intentions gone bad'. More

Can't wait
I'm even wishing my holiday away so that I get to see this sooner. It's got to be awesome with that cast !! More

Could this be possibly better...
... than the TV series? I saw the series again only last week to refresh my memory and get me in the mood, because the first trailer looked so damn good, and I reckon there's room for improvement, mainly some of the acting in the series is a bit ropey... I say some. This second trailer looks even better and the cast is incredible. I for one will be booking to see this. Can't wait! More

Best.Cast.Ever.
I know its old hat to do the comic book man thing, but this film has all of my favourite actors in it, and if they were acting out a script reject for 2 pints of Lager and a packet of crisps I would be there front row, face full of awe... More

RE:
I really really hope this will be the movie that Gary Oldman will win the Oscar, he is long overdue for one. More

interesting how the x-men soundtrack sounded better on that trailer than it did in the x-men film. More

Outstanding.
Excellent cast, excellent director. Never read the book or seen the BBC series, but this looks brilliant. Really looking forward to this. More
