Recently, we had the first trailer for the upcoming adaptation of the John Le Carre espionage novel Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and lo, it was good. Now, there’s a new trailer that’s just arrived online and it’s even better.
With a cast that includes Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Mark Strong, John Hurt, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Ciaran Hinds it’s easy to see why this film is starting to gain so much attention. Plus, it’s based on a very well known and successful novel, so that’s going to factor in as well.
In case you’re not familiar with the story, here’s some of it to get you even more interested.
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.
Sounds good to me. Focus Features releases the film in the US on November 18th. Check out the new trailer after the break.
