New Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Clip
Be suspicious; be very suspicious

Boasting what is surely a contender for Greatest Cast Ever Assembled and based on a classic spy novel by John Le Carre, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is one of the more exciting films lined up for this autumn season. And as a special Friday treat, here's a little snippet from the film that lays out some of the suspects in the Cold War-set thriller.

We get a glimpse here of Control (John Hurt), the man at the top of the "Circus", Britain's foreign intelligence agency (or MI6 to you and me) in the early 1970s. He briefs agent Jim Prideaux (Mark Strong) in the hunt for the mole, assigning code-names to each of the suspects in the hunt. You'll also catch a glimpse here of Gary Oldman's George Smiley, who becomes the key figure in the hunt for the shadowy leak.

This clip does contain mild spoilers for the film, if you haven't read the book or come across the seminal 1979 TV series, so tread carefully.

 

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy has its official premiere at the Venice Film Festival this weekend, and will hit UK cinemas on September 16.
