Tinker, Tailer, Soldier, Spy promises to be one of the best spy movies of 2011 as the movie, as adaptation of a John le Carre novel, brings together an all star cast.
Leading that all star cast is Gary Oldman and he is joined by Oscar winner Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, mark Strong, John Hurt and Benedict Cumberbatch – not bad right?
The film has Tomas Alfredson, the man behind Let The Right One In, in the director’s chair in his first movie since the adaptation of the John Ajvide Lindqvist novel.
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.
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy is released 16th September. Take a look at the new trailer for the movie:
