People in the UK must think they’re so cool because they’re getting Tomas Alfredson’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy two months before us poor sods in the US see it. And to all of our UK readers, I’ll tell you this right now: you’re cool because of your accents, but getting a first look at this movie doesn’t hurt either. Technically, folks at the Venice Film Festival will see what looks like an exhilarating spy thriller, and I’ll be keeping an eye out for the reviews we’ll be seeing a couple weeks from now. If anyone in the UK wants to fly me over to see the movie, I’ll give you all the tea in China. I’ve been told you people like tea.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film stars Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ciaran Hinds, Mark Strong, Svetlana Khodchenko, Toby Jones, John Hurt, Stephen Graham, and Kathy Burke. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy opens in the UK on September 16th and in the US on November 18th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy:
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.
