Shot back in mid-2014, we’ve been waiting for the latest John le Carré adaptation for some time, and now we finally have news on when at least some audiences can see Our Kind of Traitor. Led by Ewan McGregor, Stellan Skarsgard, Damian Lewis and Naomie Harris, it’ll hit U.K. theaters on May 6th and today brings the first trailer.
Directed by Susanna White (Boardwalk Empire, Generation Kill) and adapted by Hossein Amini (The Two Faces of January, Drive), it follows a couple drawn into a dangerous game of international espionage, caught between a money-launder, the Russian mafia, the British government, and a ruthless MI6 agent. After A Most Wanted Man was well-received, hopefully this follows it up strongly. Check out the trailer, synopsis, and batch of images below.

Cheer on local talent with these potentially great UK films from 2016, including drama, comedy, action, horror, fantasy & more…
While Batman Vs Superman, Captain America: Civil War, X-Men Apocalypse and other mega franchises are expected to dominate cinemas in 2016, let’s hear it for the films below. None are sequels, few have titanic budgets, all of them are British and each of them has the potential to be great.
2016 looks to be a particularly strong year for UK crime drama, with Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire, Adam Smith’s Trespass Against Us and Michael Apted’s Unlocked on their way. Military thrillers are also well represented this year, with Gavin Hood’s Eye In The Sky, Fernando Coimbra’s Sand Castle, and Simon West’s Stratton incoming. There’s also comedy, fantasy, drama, horror and even a musical waiting for you below.
