Entertainment One have given us the first UK trailer for the highly anticipated A Most Wanted Man, the new film directed by Anton Corbijn (Control), and based on John le Carré’s celebrated spy thriller.
The film undoubtedly has extra interest as well due to the devastating death of Philip Seymour Hoffman and here, he looks utterly compelling, as always, and this one sees him teams up with a great cast that includes Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright, Daniel Brühl and Willem Dafoe.
We had a first clip for you back in January, and now this wonderfully atmospheric UK trailer just below the official synopsis:
Present day Hamburg: a tortured and near-dead half-Chechen, half-Russian man on the run arrives in the city’s Islamic community desperate for help and looking to recover his late Russian father’s ill-gotten fortune. Nothing about him seems to add up; is he a victim, thief or, »

We already know that Mark Strong plays a good spy - his haunted field agent Jim Prideaux was a standout in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, as was his harassed CIA supervisor in Zero Dark Thirty - and he'll continue the trend with upcoming projects The Imitation Game and The Secret Service.
When Digital Spy caught up with Strong backstage at Sunday's Olivier Awards, he discussed his role as MI6 chief Stewart Menzies in The Imitation Game, which stars Benedict Cumberbatch as pioneering World War II codebreaker Alan Turing.
"He was the guy who kind of set up the Secret Service after the war, and he has the overview," Strong explained. "He's the chap that's running everybody, all the spies, what's happening with decoding the Enigma machine. He's the guy with all the cards in his hand."

Hamburg, Germany: 2012. A mysterious, tortured and near-dead half-Chechen, half-Russian man on the run (Grigoriy Dobrygin) arrives in the city’s Islamic community desperate for help and looking to recover his late Russian father’s ill-gotten fortune.

Drawn into this web of intrigue are a banker (Dafoe) and a young female lawyer (McAdams) who is determined to defend the defenseless. All the while, they are being watched by the brilliant, roguish »

Coming from The American director Anton Corbijn, and based on the novel by John le Carre, A Most Wanted Man marks one of the final roles of Philip Seymour Hoffman, here playing a German intellignce operative tracking down terrorist's abroad. Besides Hoffman, who as always promises to be brilliant, it also stars Willem DeFoe, Robin Wright, and Rachel McAdams, and this seems to be the kind of engrossing spy thriller you would expect from the author of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Check out the trailer below. Released: July 25th »

I still find it painful to talk or write about Philip Seymour Hoffman -- no celebrity passing in the last couple of years has hit me quite as hard as his, and I know that goes for many of us. So rewatching Anton Corbijn's "A Most Wanted Man" is going to be a strangely melancholy experience, not least because it's as strong a reminder as anything of what cinema has lost: as a rumpled German intelligence agent weary of post-9/11 paranoia, the actor gives one of his finest lead turns. I called his performance "a thing of wily, weathered beauty" at the film's Sundance premiere, mere weeks before Hoffman's death; viewed after the fact, the sense of palpable exhaustion he brings to the character may seem morbidly poignant. The film itself is rather special, too: a worthy companion piece, of sorts, to fellow John Le Carré adaptation "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, »

Roadside Attractions has released the trailer for Anton Corbijn’s John le Carré adaptation of the dramatic spy thriller, A Most Wanted Man, which stars the late Philip Seymour Hoffman in one of his final performances.
A Most Wanted Man is set in Hamburg, Germany: 2012.

Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death was a tragedy for his family and friends, but it was also a tragedy for cinema, who lost one of its finest and most varied actors. While his final performance will be his appearances in The Hunger Games finale films, Hoffman’s last leading role was in A Most Wanted Man.
The first trailer for the spy thriller has hit the web today and it showcases the actor in his pivotal part as the head of an anti-terrorist team. For those who don’t know, A Most Wanted Man is based on the book by John Le Carre and centers on a Hamburg-based terrorist cell and its involvement in the 9/11 attacks. At the head of the anti-terrorist team is Gunter Bachmann (Hoffman), who sends his people out in search of sources within the Islamic community that will lead them, hopefully, to center of the cell. »

The first official trailer for director Anton Corbijn’s (The American) dramatic spy thriller A Most Wanted Man has been released. Based on the John le Carre (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) novel of the same name, the film stars Philip Seymour Hoffman in one of his final roles as a German intelligence operative working to track down terrorists abroad. I caught the film at Sundance a few months ago and, essentially, it’s exactly what you think an Anton Corbijn adaptation of a John le Carre novel would be. It’s certainly a slow burn, but it’s sharp and engrossing, offering a unique, global perspective on the post-9/11 world. Hoffman is, unsurprisingly, brilliant in the lead role as the focused yet jaded operative trying to navigate the no-win world of terrorist hunting, and just watching this trailer makes me enormously sad that he’s no longer around to grace us with his irreplaceable talent. »

Adapted from the John le Carre novel of the same name, A Most Wanted Man had its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year where reviews seemed rather muted. Directed by Anton Corbijn and featuring one of the final onscreen performances from the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, the film centers on a Chechen Muslim who illegally immigrates to Hamburg, where he gets caught up in the international war on terror. amz asin="B001FA0H3E" size="small"Joining Hoffman is an impressive cast that includes Rachel McAdams, Willem Dafoe, Robin Wright and Daniel Bruhl and Roadside has set a July 25 release for the film.

Following a premiere at Sundance in January, the spy thriller A Most Wanted Man is heading to theaters this summer, marking one of the final performances from the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. The film is an understated and reserved thriller in the vein of Michael Clayton and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, with Hoffman anchoring the film with one hell of a grizzled performance (read my review from Sundance here). The film also stars Rachel McAdams (whose German accent needs some work), Willem Dafoe, Daniel Bruhl and Robin Wright. It's a spectacular slow burn that is undoubtedly worth seeing. Watch below! Here's the first trailer for Anton Corbijn's A Most Wanted Man, originally from Yahoo: A Most Wanted Man is directed by Anton Corbijn (The American) and written by Andrew Bovell (Edge of Darkness), based on John Le Carre's novel of the same name. German spy Gunther Bachmann (Philip Seymour Hoffman) is tracking down Issa, »

Tom Hardy has enjoyed a fairly swift and impressive rise to fame over the past few years, mixing up Hollywood blockbusters like Inception and The Dark Knight Rises with smaller, critically-acclaimed drama films like Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Warrior (This Means War was somewhat out of character).
This year Hardy can be seen playing lead roles in a couple of indie movies: The Drop, a crime drama that he co-starred in with James Gandolfini, and Steven Knight’s one-location thriller Locke. The latter has been heaped with praise from reviewers, and now Hardy is set to reunite with Knight on a very different project.

Benedict Cumberbatch conducted the post-race winner interviews at the Malaysian Grand Prix this weekend, where he was also forced to field a few questions.
Benedict Cumberbatch At Malaysian Grand Prix
After Lewis Hamilton finished in first Sunday afternoon, he was interviewed by the Sherlock actor. “Incredibly happy, my first win here in my eighth year, so finally got that,” Hamilton told Cumberbatch, according to The Independent. “To get a one-two is quite special, I haven't had many in my career.”
Hamilton also touched on the tragedy of the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, saying, “After such a tragedy three weeks ago, I would like to dedicate this win to those people and their families.”

Starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Samuel L. Jackson, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Robert Redford, Cobie Smulders, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp, Hayley Atwell and George St-Pierre.
Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and battles a new threat from old history: the Soviet agent known as the Winter Soldier.
After decent but unremarkable first film, and a by-the-book second outing with his fellow Avengers, it is probably fair to say that Captain America has been the most underwhelming member of Marvel’s cinematic supergroup. Lacking the humour of the Iron Man films, and the fantasy world-building we get from Thor, it was easy to get the impression that ‘Cap’ was around simply because you couldn’t have The Avengers without him.
Now however, with the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we have been given irrefutable evidence that »

The search for a director for Universal’s red-hot spy thriller, Section 6, has now come to an end. After looking at names like David MacKenzie and Tom Hooper, the studio has settled on Mr. Joe Cornish. Best known for his excellent sci-fi comedy Attack The Block, Cornish will direct rising star Jack O’Connell in the film, which follows the “World War I-era formation of British intelligence agency MI6 and its first director, Sir George Mansfield Cummings, who served as the inspiration for M in the James Bond series.”
Considering that Universal purchased Aaron Berg’s spec script for $1.2 million, hopes are high that the studio has something special on their hands here. The plot certainly sounds like perfect material for a thrilling tale, and with Cornish and O’Connell now locked in, this one has all the makings of solid British spy film that could very well rival »

A young wannabe musician finds himself out of his depth when he joins an avant-garde pop band led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank
Lenny Abrahamson directs an offbeat comedy about a young wannabe musician, Jon (Domhnall Gleeson), who finds himself out of his depth when he joins an avant-garde pop band led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank (Michael Fassbender), a musical genius who hides himself inside a large fake head, and his terrifying bandmate Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal).
A trailer for Michael Fassbender's new movie Frank that premiered at Sundance has been released, and it looks quirky and funny and silly, and it comes from the folks behind The Men Who Stare at Goats and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. And look, Maggie Gyllenhaal is there, too! You want to know what's not there? Michael Fassbender's face. Yes, the entire premise of Frank revolves around Fassbender's character and how he's always wearing a giant paper-mâché head, and we assume that at some point in the movie we'll see Fassy's face. And we're not saying that he can only act when his face is shown on the screen. He's probably awesome in Frank, just like he's awesome in all his »
Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted is hitting theaters on March 21st, and the brains behind the upcoming sequel have taken it upon themselves to release a series of international promotional posters parodying classic spy films. Before you ask: yes, they are as awesome as you’d expect them to be. The Muppets have a long tradition of being sweetly and smartly satirical, and the spy spoof posters making their way around the web right now fit in perfectly with their legacy.
The posters, which you can see below, feature Kermit, Miss Piggy and the new Muppet nemesis, Constantine (a dead ringer for everybody’s favorite frog), in Muppet-ized versions of Skyfall, Face/Off, The World Is Not Enough and (brilliantly) Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. They all look fantastic and are another step in the right direction for the Muppets, as they continue to move forward in recreating their image for »
