Opening in limited release this weekend is director Tomas Alfredson’s (Let the Right One In) great new movie, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Based on the 1974 British novel by John le Carre, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is the first novel of the “Karla Trilogy” and the first film installment that may spawn a franchise. The spy thriller features Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Colin Firth, and Benedict Cumberbatch, just to name a few. Set during the Cold War era, the story follows former spy George Smiley (Oldman) through his investigation of a possible double agent within MI-6. It’s a hell of a movie and one you should definitely see.
Anyway, I was recently able to speak with most of the cast at the New York City press junket. During my interview with Oldman, we talked about how he found Smiley’s glasses (it was a very important part of finding the character), what’s his karaoke song, the rumors that he might be doing Akira, and working with the IMAX cameras on The Dark Knight Rises. Hit the jump to watch.
Finally, if you missed my video interview with Benedict Cumberbatch, click here.
