Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy International trailer
The new trailer for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy is very good, although this one does up the pace a little. I think while most prefer this trailer, I liked the more considered, less pace driven first trailer which built atmosphere first.
Still, this trailer looks great and does also allow some of the other characters to come to the foreground and deliver some lines as well as flesh out a little more about the story.
You should know that the film is the adaptation of the John le Carré novel which was already adapted into a mini-series, also called Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, starring the excellent Alex Guinness in the leading role, a role now taken most fittingly by Gary Oldman for the film version directed by Tomas Aldredson. Alongside him are some other great acting talents including John Hurt, Ciarán Hinds, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Tom Hardy, Toby Jones, Benedict Cumberbatch, Stephen Graham, Simon McBurney and Stephen Rea.
Well if you didn't I've just recapped it all for you.
Here's a blurb to go along with the trailer:
Set in the 1970s, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy finds George Smiley (Gary Oldman), a recently retired MI6 agent, doing his best to adjust to a life outside the secret service. However, when a disgraced agent reappears with information concerning a mole at the heart of the Circus, Smiley is drawn back into the murky field of espionage. Tasked with investigating which of his trusted former colleagues has chosen to betray him and their country, Smiley narrows his search to four suspects - all experienced, urbane, successful agents - but past histories, rivalries and friendships make it far from easy to pinpoint the man who is eating away at the heart of the British establishment.

This looks like it could be a corker of a film filled with award winning performances. Okay, we've only seen a few minutes worth of snapshots, but it does look good and we know the story is full of actors roles.
