New “Tinker, Tailor” U.S. trailer arrives – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The biggest disappointment of this year’s Toronto film festival – if it can be qualified as a legitimate disappointment – is the absence of Tomas Alfredson’s “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” from the schedule. Though the moody spy thriller played Venince (to largely positive reviews), it bypassed Telluride, Toronto and New York altogether and will plays its cards close to its vest until we get closer to its announced Dec. 9 opening in the States.

But Focus Features continues to tease the star-studded adaptation of a John le Carre novel, which stars Gary Oldman as a retired spy being brought back into the fold to out a possible mole. The cast rounds out with amazing talents like Oscar winner Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, John Hurt, Toby Jones and Benedict Cumberbatch.

A U.S. cut of the trailer made its way to Yahoo Movies last night. We have it below:


Are you excited about “Spy?” Do you think it has awards potential? Oldman deserves to get into the race on merit. I’m dying to see if his “Spy” turn is good enough to earn him a seat at the Oscar table this year.
