The upcoming thriller Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy has already been a memorable 1979 BBC mini-series and successful remake in the U.K., where it has already opened. The movie will finally reach the U.S. next month but not before Focus Features has released several new preview of the clips to help promote its U.S. release.
Based on the 1974 novel by John le Carré, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy stars Gary Oldman as semi-retired British intelligence agent George Smiley who is brought in to root out a Soviet spy who has infiltrated the upper echelons of British Intelligence. Oldman recently admitted that he has been "waiting 30 years" to play a part like Smiley, and could play the part again as a sequel is already in the works should Tinker find as much success in the States as it did in Britain, where it opened at the top of the box office in the U.K. in September. watch the clips >> Posted 11.28.11 by Ryan
Lately, it seems that the cast of any movie directed by Christopher Nolan are sworn to silence. This means that, like the cloud of secrecy that surrounded Inception, no one in the cast of the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises will reveal anything. That didn't stop MTV from asking Gary Oldman if the highly-anticipated sequel is indeed the last chapter as Nolan has claimed. Oldman took a few seconds of silence before responding.
My silence isn't saying — no, no, no, don't read, don't read into it. My silence is — I'm thinking about how I can answer it [the question]. I was at Comic-Con, and someone said to me from the audience, "When's the next Batman? This was years ago, right? And I said, "Oh, I don't know, next year, it's going to be at the end of the year." And it went 'round the world.
Oldman said that in 2009, but also added: "But you didn't hear that from me," which clearly wasn't adhered to, so his reticence about responding is understandable. Eventually, he did compose himself enough to answer the question. Bane a "smart" decision by Nolan >> Posted 11.23.11 by Ryan
The countdown has begun for the opening of the upcoming Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, at least in the U.K., where the movie opens in less than a month. A third international trailer for the movie has now been released, just weeks after a second international trailer earlier this month. While the footage doesn't stray too far from the first two trailers, the latter half of the new trailer offers a few new look at the highly-anticipated thriller.
Based on the 1974 novel by John le Carré, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy was turned into a popular BBC mini-series in 1979, with Alec Guinness in the role of George Smiley, a semi-retired British intelligence agent who is tasked with finding a Soviet spy who has infiltrated the upper echelon of the Secret Intelligence Service. Gary Oldman plays the role in the latest adaptation, which co-stars a "who's who" of popular British actors, including Tom Hardy (Inception, Warrior) and recent Academy Award–winner Colin Firth (The King's Speech). watch the trailer >> Posted 08.25.11 by Ryan
After being released in bootleg form, then pulled off the Internet, the official teaser trailer for The Dark Knight Rises is now online (via ComingSoon).
Starting with footage from director Christopher Nolan's debut Batman movie, Batman Begins, the trailer begins with Liam Neeson's voice dispensing advice like "devoting yourself to an ideal" as he did as Ra's al Ghul in the movie, then changes to Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon in a hospital bed, asking for Batman to come back with flashes of Tom Hardy as Bane while Gotham crumbles just as it appears in the recently released teaser poster. watch the trailer >> Posted 07.18.11 by Ryan
As many of you might already know, the first teaser trailer for The Dark Knight Rises will screen this Friday ahead of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. The concluding chapter in Christopher Nolan's trilogy is still in the process of filming, with production currently in the Pittsburgh area. But of course, that hasn't stopped tons of rumors from surfacing all throughout the Internets. What will we see? Who will be featured? How much will Nolan give away?
Well, it appears we now have an answer. Earlier today, Cinema Blend posted a bootleg version of the trailer (now pulled at the request of Warner Bros.). The source is unidentified, but the sights and sounds in the trailer match almost point-for-point the details leaked to Collider earlier this week.
