John le Carré novels tend to make great movies and Our Kind of Traitor is just the latest to be adapted for the big screen.

Our Kind of Traitor

Our Kind of Traitor follows in the successful footsteps of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, A Most Wanted Man, and The Constant Gardener and is one of the May movies that I am already really looking forward to.

Ewan McGregor is set to lead a fantastic cast and he is joined by Damian Lewis and Naomie Harris in this brand new clip. Take a look:

Stellan Skarsgård, Jeremy Northam, Mark Stanley, Mark Gatiss, and Alicia von Rittberg will also star alongside McGregor, Lewis, and Harris.

Our Kind of Traitor marks the return of Susanna White to the director's chair for her first feature since Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang. This is only the second big screen feature of her career and is the first time that she has tackled the thriller genre.

While on holiday in Marrakech, an ordinary English couple, Perry (McGregor) and Gail (Harris), befriend a flamboyant and charismatic Russian, Dima (Skarsgård), who unbeknownst to them is a kingpin money launderer for the Russian mafia.

When Dima asks for their help to deliver classified information to the British Secret Services, Perry and Gail get caught in a dangerous world of international espionage and dirty politics. The couple is propelled on a perilous journey through Paris and Bern, a safe house in the French Alps, to the murky corners of the City of London and an alliance with the British Government via a ruthless and determined MI6 agent (Lewis).

Our Kind of Traitor is promising to be a tense watch that is full of twists and turns and I cannot wait to see this latest le Carré novel get the silver screen treatment.

Our Kind of Traitor is released 13th May.
