First Domestic Trailer for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy Arrives Online
09.11.11 by Ryan
The thriller Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy recently debuted at the Venice Film Festival to excellent reviews, and will be released in the U.K. next week, so Focus Features can now concentrate on its domestic campaign, which has been kicked off with a brand new trailer, courtesy of Yahoo!.
Essentially pieced together from parts of three previous international trailers, the latest trailer introduces the story of semi-retired British intelligence agent George Smiley (Gary Oldman) as he attempts to find the Soviet mole that has infiltrated the upper echelon of the British Secret Intelligence Service. The trailer includes some bits of new footage and some changes, removing the slang reference of "the Circus" when speaking of the British Intelligence.
Based on the 1974 novel by John le Carré, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy was directed by Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In), in his English-language debut. John Hurt (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows), Colin Firth (The King's Speech), Tom Hardy (Inception, Warrior), Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC's Sherlock and the upcoming The Hobbit) and Ciarán Hinds (The Debt) co-star.
