A new poster and featurette for director Tomas Alfredson’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy are now available online. Starring Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, John Hurt, Mark Strong, Toby Jones and Benedict Cumberbatch, the spy thriller is set during the Cold War and follows former spy George Smiley (Oldman) as he investigates a potential double agent within the MI-6 ranks. The cast is great, author John le Carré’s source material is highly celebrated and I love Alfredson’s Let the Right One In. To summarize, I can’t wait to see this movie.
Watch the featurette, which is basically an introduction to Oldman’s George Smiley, and check out the new poster after the jump. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy opens in the U.K. on September 16th and in the U.S. on December 9th.
Here’s the featurette:

Based on the classic novel of the same name, the international thriller is set at the height of the Cold War years of the mid-20th Century. George Smiley (Gary Oldman), a disgraced British spy, is rehired in secret by his government – which fears that the British Secret Intelligence Service, a.k.a. MI-6, has been compromised by a double agent working for the Soviets.
